"I've always thought Palms caters for clients hoping to get away from it all. Honeymooners or couples looking for quiet sums up Palms... one of Zanzibar's very best beach properties."


This is an absolutely fantastic place to stay – beautifully decorated, extremely exclusive, and very romantic. It is the perfect place for couples who want time to themselves, particularly as children under 16 are not admitted!


It is situated on the southern of the two huge beaches that run down Zanzibar’s east coast, and it is only about 45 minutes from Stone Town and the airport.


The six private villas are set among palm trees in beautiful gardens on the edge of a huge sandy beach. Their most recent addition sees a stunning new beachfront villa with a private plunge pool, bringing the number of villas at the Palms to seven in total. All are spacious, with an open-plan bedroom and living room, a full ensuite bathroom, and even a spare room/study. Each suite has its own outdoor ‘sala’ on the beach where guests can laze on a daybed in the shade, between taking dips in their personal plunge pool or a swim in the ocean.

The hotel’s Plantation House is decorated in colonial style. The bar and restaurant is elegant yet informal and serves the most delicious food. As for the service and attention to detail, it is immaculate. Please note during dinner settings, gentlemen are required to dress in long trousers.


Although The Palms is small and totally private, guests are able to benefit from the many facilities available at its two sister hotels, the much larger Breezes Beach Club and the luxury resort of Baraza. These include the Club itself and a particularly special spa with therapists from Bali and Thailand.
