A Divine Experience

Savor the Moment

There aren't enough words to describe how amazing this property is, from the moment we
left the highway a magical holiday began. The staff, Jackson in particular, are the most
genuine, friendly, helpful, and thoughtful. The room is itself, is a pretty decent size bungalow,
is rustic but everything is where you want it, and works perfectly.

What Our Customers Say


Flawless stay. Truly magical place with the utmost top notch hospitality. Everyone really enjoys being there and especially Siriak and Kabalabala were just remarkable as if they're inviting you to their home. The room was spacious, the grounds were charming and extremely private. Hours would go by without ever seeing anyone sometimes. Oh and the food was superb. Don't let the "all inclusive" tag fool you into thinking this is a Mexico or Euro all inclusive experience with mediocre food....Some of the dishes could easily be served at a Michelin restaurant, yet felt like a home cooked meal at the same time. Highly Highly recommend.

Palms Zanzibar - Highly Recommend

This was an all inclusive Awesome Beautiful small resort. Accommodations were Amazing, each couple had their own Hut House with their own private cabana. The inside house was big, beautiful and clean! I would need a full page to describe the beautiful inside! Each unit had their own private outside dip pool. The gardens were beautiful with swimming pool and outdoor bar.

An exclusive trip to Heaven on Earth

We have travelled extensively and this location was the closest to perfection we have ever experienced. Only six luxurious bungalows, excellent food, staff and facilities and a warm sea. All that and a manager who constantly checked our well-being at every opportunity. Brilliant!

The Palms is the perfect couples destination in Zanzibar.

Fantastic accommodations, food and service. Siriac, the manager greeted us with a warm and friendly welcome and everyone on his team followed his lead. The private plunge pool is the perfect ace to stargaze.

What can we say except amazing, overwhelming, stunning - simply a paradise

This really small hotel embedded in Palm trees offers everything for a romantic couple stay you want to have.

We had even gotten a villa with a small private pool and a view out to the ocean.

Go go go! You will fall in love and want to go back over and over again.

Service, rooms, resort and food and drinks were all 5 out of 5! Would recommend to anyone. They also have nearby resorts which are equally fabulous - Baraza, Breezes and Zawadi.

The Abeid Amani Karume Airport, Zanzibar (IATA CODE = ZNZ)

If you are booking through a travel agent, they may have ground services in Zanzibar available to meet you alternatively please let us know and we will make these arrangements at an extra fee.

Yes, all of our award winning properties are located right in front of a white sandy beach

Similar to majority of the "Swahili Coast" our beaches are tidal and the tide timings change with each season. (you may google exact high and low tide timings for your specific stay with us) Low tide is a wonderful opportunity to take a free guided "Reef Safari" and discover some of our wonderful marine life.
