We loved the villas at Sentido Neptune Palm, with their discreet and traditional architecture, creating a pleasant, natural look. Although they are sea-facing, the villas are found behind the pool and restaurant areas so unfortunately, none can claim those in-demand sea views. The neutral, stone colour square buildings each contain four rooms, with wooden partitions, balconies and a spiral staircase to access the second floor of accommodation. Each of the 60 deluxe rooms is clean, comfortable and decorated in the exact same manner, that is, tastefully; a classy, contemporary take on an African theme.
Each room contains a large four poster bed that features Lamu art details and crisp white linen that is topped off with an embroidered trim bed throw. Sprinkled on the bed for new arrivals are flowers as well as towels folded into the shape of an elephant. New arrivals also receive bottles of still water and a bottle of wine with wine glasses. On the bedside tables are gorgeous lamps with elaborate lampshades in an intricate palm leaf design. The desk and armchairs also boast local craftsmanship, while the warm colour scheme of the rooms creates a cosy feel. Each room has a lovely terrace area with Lamu style daybeds (upholstered in African prints) and outdoor setting. The bathroom can be accessed by two sliding wooden doors (one from the room's entrance and one from the main bedroom area) where guests will appreciate the large shower cabin with massage shower jets (no bath tub) and a huge wooden carved mirror frame above a double basin vanity stocked with plenty of toiletries.
