Description & Facilities


4 Stars





The Palms is located on the tranquil south eastern coast of Zanzibar. It is situated on an untouched beach and people find it as the ultimate getaway retreat. It is perfect for travellers who want to experience something exotic and different.

The Palms, Zanzibar is a secluded retreat as it has just six private villas. All of the villas have a bedroom, and living room with en suite bathrooms and their own dressing room. The villas are large and well furnished. They have their own terrace which allow you to enjoy dramatic views of the Indian Ocean.

The inside of each villa is fantastic with subtle colours of coffee and cream. They also have dark grained polished floors which have a feel of colonial grandeur. You also have a silk-draped four-poster bed to add to the romantic atmosphere. The villas also have a deep blue plunge pool with amazing views of the Ocean.

At the palms you can also enjoy fantastic Zanzibar food with its rich blend of spices, fruits and island flavours. You can enjoy a Plantation atmosphere at the Plantation House as it winds down towards the Spice inspired bar. No detail is too small for the staff at the Palms, they even change fabrics daily from rust coloured silks to bright white linens.

The cherry on the cake is the fact that the Palms also has a spa in a dramatic setting. Here you can relax with worldclass facilities.
