Diani Beach - South coast of Kenya
Built by Swiss national Hans U. Wanner, the Diani Palm Hotel offers a unique combination of African hospitality and Swiss management. Offering just 22 rooms, it also offers a restaurant and bar.
Location and seasons
The hotel is just a few minutes from famous Diani Beach, 25 miles south of Mombasa. Kenya's stunning coastline (485 kms from Nairobi) runs 700 km between the Tanzanian and Somali borders and is renowned for its silken white sandy beaches, coconut palms, sheltered lagoons, pellucid blue waters, remote islands, uncharted mangrove swamps and mysterious Arab and Swahili ruins, many of which date back to the 8th Century AD. An idyllic climate cooled by the monsoon, the Swahili coast offers a daily average of 8 hours of sunshine, and the hot steamy climate is tempered by the monsoon winds: the south-easterly Kusi, which blows from April to October; and the north-easterly Kaskazi which blows from November to March.
Kenya's pristine and well-developed coral reef extends virtually without break from Shimoni in the south to Malindi in the north, some 230 Kms in total. The reef is broken only in a few places by river mouths and creeks; and of these the deepest and most sheltered safe channels through the reef are those that lie on either side of Mombasa Island.
Kenya's south coast, one of her most popular beach holiday destinations, offers clear blue sea, marine parks, excellent water sports, coral reefs, monsoon winds, numerous hotels and beach resorts, family vacations, sun and sand, cultural and beach travel and more. Close to Mombasa, it is also within easy reach of Malindi, Lamu, Diani and many other popular Kenya safari resort hotels.
The hotel offers 22 comfortably equipped double-rooms; all with bath or shower, toilet, balcony or terrace, air conditioner, fridge, TV, telephone, and safe. All rooms provide a perfect view of the poolside and the bar area.
Dining and bars
The restaurant, which is in the centre of the resort, has a seating capacity of 60 guests. Excellent international as well as African dishes are available. The Indian ocean, right on our doorstep supplies an endless source of fresh seafood. Meals are served in a choice of two main courses and a buffet is served every week
The "Green Palm" bar is situated at the entrance to the hotel compound and acts as a meeting place for everyone including tourists from the neighbouring hotels as well as locals. We serve all kinds of drinks, a-la-carte menus as well as snacks at affordable prices.
