The Palms


Small, intimate, serene – The Palms is one of Zanzibar’s most secluded resorts, creating a wonderful escape and the perfect way to unwind after a safari holiday. With tonnes of local charm and traditional, colonial designs, we’ll be surprised if you don’t feel like you’re in your own little Zanzibar paradise.

There are only six villas, all adopting a stylish, elegant vibe and evoking a sense of serenity. The décor is very grand, with a gorgeous caramel and gold hue, and each villa has its own private plunge pool. Should you fancy venturing a few steps to the beach, you could even get your own private thatched banda on the beach, or you could simply relax with a cocktail in hand at the poolside bar.

The pace here is slow and tranquil, giving you ample time to rejuvenate after an exhausting safari. Sleep in as late as you wish, soak up the sun for as long as you like, enjoy a few water sports if you fancy a little bit of action, and then saunter along to The Plantation House for a delicious, romantic dinner amidst beautiful antiques.

The Palms can also be booked for exclusive use. Perfect for large families or groups of friends, you can rent out the whole hotel and enjoy a remote and secluded beachside getaway together. All meals and drinks are included, and you’ll have your own dedicated team of staff. Give our travel experts a call for more information.
