Djibouti Palace Kempinski

Situated on a peaceful peninsula that juts out into the warm waters of the Gulf of Tadjourah, the impressive Djibouti Palace is located just outside the hubbub of the city. Housing 320 elegantly decorated rooms, this property is perfectly positioned for exploring the tiny country of Djibouti.

The hotel makes the most of its seaside location and offers relaxed views across this sheltered portion of the Red Sea.

The Djibouti Palace's various drinking and dining establishments also take advantage of its locale, with the beautiful Jetty Lounge, tranquil Bankoualé beach restaurant and stunning Lac Abbe infinity pool all looking out over the gulf. Culinary options are varied, including a variety of international cuisines. For relaxation, an on-site spa provides a number of treatments, ranging from Turkish bathes to Ayurvedic specialities.


The waters of the bay offer swimming, snorkelling and diving, with whale sharks frequent visitors. Inland, trips can be made to explore the captivating landscapes of Lake Abbe and Lake Assal, as well as the historic city of Tadjourah. Djibouti is petite in size - with few places more than a day trip away, making this hotel a fantastic base for further exploration.
