Djibouti Palace Kempinski

Africa > Djibouti

Really the only place to stay (unless you go for a liveaboard – talk to us about that too) is the Djibouti Palace Kempinski. It would be fair to say this isn’t an architectural feat of great beauty but it is eminently comfortable and a great place from which to explore on land and sea. Read more
