Palm Garden Boutique Hotel

Hotel in Watamu

Set in Watamu, 1.5 mi from Merry Crab Cove Beach, Palm Garden Boutique Hotel offers accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, a bar and a shared lounge. Wow wow and wow again! When we pulled up with our taxi after a long ride we were met by the owner, Manni as well as Lydia the guest liaison. When you arrive you fell at home they make you feel so special. After check in we were taken to our room and this blew away our minds the design the size and the cleanliness was amazing. The room had Netflix and smart TVs if you felt like watching something. The private terrace the room has was great for sundowners. The chef, Nelson knows what he is doing and breakfast is a treat with home baked bread and jams. Any excursion we wanted to do we WhatsApped Lydia and she arranged it all for us which helped making tje stay even more stress free. The pool is stunning and I can't emphasize enough how beautiful this place is no expense were held back on finishings in this luxurious boutique hotel.
