About The Palms

Located on the peaceful south eastern coast of Zanzibar and set on a flawless beach, The Palms is the ultimate sanctuary for the discerning traveller. The six private villas are beautifully designed, with sumptuous coffee and cream interiors, polished wood floors and billowing curtains creating a unique marriage of colonial grandeur and simple elegance. Each of the stylish villas feature a bedroom, living room and en suite bathroom, with a large furnished veranda. On each veranda a silk-draped four-poster Zanzibar day bed accents a sunken, midnight blue plunge pool with long views over the Indian Ocean.

All the luxurious comforts and amenities of a five star resort are offered here, along with the most personal attention you could desire. The fusion of cultures in Zanzibar is reflected in the exotic cuisine, where blends of exotic spices and flavours are served on the colonnaded terrace of The Plantation House. To work up an appetite, we recommend searching for marine life on the Reef Safari, a visit to the Turtle Rescue Programme or a tour around Stone Town to view the historic Spice Plantations. Alternatively, the Sanctuary Spa offers a variety of treatments in an ocean front setting where you can enjoy an "Après Safari Treatment ©", the perfect tonic for guests arriving from the dusty bumpy roads of the African bush.
