The Palms

The Palms is a luxury resort situated along an unspoiled white beach on the East Coast of Zanzibar. The hotel is family owned and the hosts have thought of everything to make their guests’ stay exceptional.

The blend of African, Portuguese, Arab and European culture has created a great fusion that is visible in everything from the architecture to the décor to the cuisine.

The Palms consists of 6 huge luxury villas, each villa is over 130 square metres – utter decadence!

Each villa is fully air-conditioned and has a master bedroom, full en-suite bathroom, walk-in changing room, extra room with en-suite bathroom and large furnished terrace with a view of the ocean. Local architecture, combined with elegant, yet relaxed décor makes for a warm and stylish island setting.

Each room has an antique Zanzibar bed and the beautiful outdoor Jacuzzi, as well as standard amenities such as a tea and coffee station, a mini bar, satellite TV, a CD player and a phone. Each villa also has a thatched beach Banda with a large double mattress for shady retreats and two loungers.

The Palms is a luxurious haven of peace and tranquillity and as such one should not expect the lively resort atmosphere that one might experience at the larger hotels on the island. The Palms sister hotel, Breezes Beach Resort, is located next door and this is where one should come if you are looking for evening entertainment.

The Dining room forms part of the main house and serves a four course dinner each evening. The décor changes daily and alternates between crisp white linens and rust coloured silks.

There are two bars on the property. The Pool Bar and Lunch Terrace serves a variety of cocktails throughout the day as well as hearty lunches, while the evening bar offers a relaxed atmosphere for pre and after dinner drinks, accompanied by jazz music and candlelight. House wine, beer and their selection of in-house spirits are included in the package. Also included are all meals, water, soft drinks, coffee and tea.

Breakfast is served on the main terrace overlooking the ocean and consists of sparkling wine, a variety of juices, pastries, fruits, tea & coffee, yoghurt and cereals. A cooked breakfast can also be ordered. Fresh fruit is served throughout the day – which is especially good after a morning at the beach. Afternoon Tea is served daily between 4 and 5pm and includes coffee, tea and cakes.

The hotel does not allow children under the age of 16.

This is an absolute must for any couple looking for some magic in an ultimate private getaway. The staff are especially attentive to your every need, so you are sure to be pampered.
