Sierra Palms Resort – ideal for business travelers and tourists

The brand-new Sierra Palms Resort is the ultimate destination for both business travelers and tourists who are looking for comfort, productivity and entertainment. They currently offer Standard rooms and Deluxe rooms and will soon reveal their luxury suites to the public.

Ideal location

Located conveniently on Lumley beach road, the hotel is right in the middle of the pleasant hustle-and-bustle of the 4km city beach. That means long evening beach walks, a steamy affogato from ice cream parlour Gigibontà, partying in the Warehouse or claiming your luck in one of the casino’s.

The hotel is also less than ten minutes from the speedboat terminals Sea Bird and Sea Coach Express, who offer transport to and from Lungi International Airport.

Business and travel

The Sierra Palms Resort caters to those who come to Freetown for corporate affairs, but also for the traveler who wants to treat him or herself. Apart from having comfortable rooms and suites, they also offer free high-speed wireless internet, conference rooms, and access to their business area.

If you are looking to spend time relaxing, the Sierra Palms Resort has a private space on Lumley beach where you can watch the ocean, see the local fishermen reel in their daily catch, or watch local beach boys enjoy a game of football or volleyball.


Whether you lodge at the hotel or not, Lily’s Café and Restaurant is an excellent choice for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a refreshing drink. The extensive menu has a combination of Italian, American and Mexican dishes that will leave all types of eaters satisfied. Whether you have a sweet tooth, are more of a burger type or could kill for a proper al dente pasta, you can get it made with the freshest ingredients at Lily’s Café and Restaurant.


Rooms start from 125$ per night including breakfast. Sea-view rooms are 150$ per night and also come with breakfast.
