Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury is undeniably the finest hotel in the Indian Ocean – this hotel is an exclusive private residence that's truly a world apart. Its loyal and discerning clientele return year after year to immerse themselves in the understated lavishness of this tropical haven. The hotel has hosted royals, political leaders, movie stars and sports stars who have enjoyed the privacy of its quiet beach, restaurants serving only the finest food and wines, and above all, the privilege of anonymity.

Mid-October 2014 saw the arrival of a brand-new era at Royal Palm. After five months of extensive renovations Royal Palm emerged refreshed and rejuvenated cleverly mixing modern textures, shapes and materials with classically drawn lines ensuring the finished product is, above all else, comfortable and welcoming.

Royal Palm promises to deliver to its guests more than just a holiday but rather a collection of meaningful experiences which stir the senses. All staff members are dedicated to creating an oasis of comfort and pleasure and the staff intuitively know that what makes Royal Palm different is the refinement and elegance with which we open our boutique hotel as your home-away-from-home.
