Medina Palms voted best Hotel in Kenya
- 25 February 2015
TripAdvisor, the world's most popular travel website, has rated Medina Palms as the Best Hotel in Kenya, as voted by independent visitors in the TripAvisor Traveler's Choice Awards.
Max Cheli, manager of Medina Palms, said: "As information and knowledge moves more towards consumer interaction through TripAdvisor and social media platforms, to be recognised as the number one hotel in Kenya and one of only four in East Africa, is a flattering achievement for Medina Palms and for Watamu as a holiday destination. We are very proud of this award and are certain it will boost consumer confidence and travel to our beautiful, protected beaches.
"Medina Palms captures the very essence of ‘Traveller’s Choices’, combining location, beauty, space, simplistic elegance and service. Informed consumers are becoming more discerning in their pre-travel arrangements, researching for the above and adding the ever sensitive ‘value for money’ equation."
In the first 135 TripAdvisor reviews about Medina Palms, 122 reviewers submitted a five-star "Excellent" rating. Robert B, of The Hague in the Netherlands, wrote: "The food here is much better than I expected, from breakfast all the way through dinner ... which is fantastic ... they will set up anywhere you care to dine ... we loved the intimate setting around an ornamental fountain under the stars with glowing candles and beautiful table settings and a canopy of rain forest trees."
