Review:
The Palm Beach Hotel is on a surprisingly picturesque site -  where the meandering Kotu Stream enters the sea - on a sand-&-mud ridge between the sands and swamp.

In 1996 construction began in this area and the accommodation finally opened for its first guest arrivals in Christmas of 2001. The end product of the many years of building is a fine hotel placed within lush gardens of dense flowering bushes, fruit trees and palms. The decor and atmosphere in the public areas is a lot more African in feel than the other accommodations Kotu. However, the interiors of the suits are distinctly European.

You can reach Palm Beach from the Badala Park on a 295 metre gravel road that merges into the resort's red brick-walled pathways and carries on to the beachfront. The entrance passageway splits the sizable reception lounge (decorated by the Senegalese Mor Fayemurf's Afro-Picasso mural) from the table d'hotel restaurant called Nabus. The lounge opens up onto the 'Duke Ellington piano bar' and to a courtyard bar and 'Art Gallery'. On the upper level is a conference hall, nightclub and a la carte restaurant.

Dinner at the resort is served by the poolside with a range of options every week from International, Italian or seafood buffet to barbeque.

The swimming pool - an angular hourglass shape with a shallow wooden bridge crossing -  is predictably between the bedrooms and the Atlantic Ocean. Bedecked in soft-pink tiles and blue canvass sun loungers. An entertainment stage resides at the faraway end while built in table regimentally line the walls.

The bedrooms are in octagonal villas in two-tier units spaced out within the jungly gardens. Four up 4 down with private veranda and staircase; red roofed and white-walled with canary coloured balustrades ringed by colourful flowering plants. The rooms are single or double with double beds, white lincrusta walls; tinted patio windows and doors; built-in wardrobes, split-level shower and toilet; television and a remote controlled air conditioning unit.
