The Palms hero

The Palms Zanzibar

Discover The Palms Zanzibar

A pretty Zanzibari hideaway, The Palms Zanzibar is a small and intimate property which is the perfect escape from the outside world. Surrounded by tropical gardens and set on the beautiful southeast coast, the adults-only hotel is a favourite with honeymooners or couples simply wishing to enjoy a secluded beachfront retreat. A fusion of European, African and Arabian influence, the property readily embraces its heritage to add a pleasing layer of authenticity to a stay here.

A small property, The Palms has only 7 villas, each over 140 square metres with a living room, full en suite bathroom, and large furnished terrace with amazing views of the Indian Ocean. The décor is a unique marriage of colonial grandeur and traditional design. On the veranda, a silk-draped four-poster Zanzibar Bed accents a private plunge pool. The main area of the lodge has a bar-restaurant, main pool area, and the postcard-perfect beach - acknowledged as one of the most beautiful in the world. The hotel is all-inclusive with excellent meals including freshly caught fish and seafood cooked in local spices. Your villa will come with a private seafront ‘banda’ with waiter service and sun loungers. For the spa, gym and tennis court you can head next door to the sister property Breezes. The close-by Water Club offers a range of water sports, including kite-sailing, kayaking, and paddle boarding.

Special offers: Book for 5 nights and only pay for 4 nights. Early booking offer: Book 5 months in advance and receive a 10% discount on your accommodation. Honeymoon offer: Book for 7 nights and only pay for 5 nights. These offers are valid until 19 December 2024, excluding July and August. Terms and conditions apply.
