This was our first holiday in over 4,1/2 years, further more we were holidaying with our 18 month year old daughter, (obviously her 1st traveling experience, and ours with a child). All these new stresses, worries and responsibilities of life were lifted from our minds immediately on our arrival at the Sultan Palace Hotel. As with everything in life it... More

We are a family of 4 living in Addis Ababa. We visited sultans palace with my dad and our two young children. The hotel offers a great beach, large pool, lovely rooms and great dining. We liked the outdoor lunch on the beach and appreciated Paula's attention to detail hy giving us a room near the beach so we could... More

Really, really amazing little unique hotel. Great food, great service and just by the sea which you overlook from most rooms. It's a "honey moon" place and for adults. I would not bring children. Only little thing to complain about would the the beds, which we found a little too hard (but we normally sleep in soft beds) - so... More

Firstly, the location of the hotel is lovely, on a cliff with an essentially private beach and an infinity pool. The main building is beautifully designed and with lovely touches like board games and billiard table. There are several things about this hotel which were good: service, pool, afternoon tea and a friendly owner. However, we felt that, for the... More

We spent a lot of time trying to decide where to stay in Zanzibar post safari. One requirement was that the place had to be air conditioned and that it had a good beach. We chose the Sultan Palace and we were not disappointed. It was about a one hour ride from the airport very close to Breezes. Upon arrival... More

We stayed here with our 3 kids. They loved it, and so did we. From the white beach to the great pool, and the fantastic accommodation, we were more than happy to have discovered this magical place. The patience of the owners and their obvious care and pride in their hotel is an indication of what you need to make... More

We stayed at the Sultan Palace with a group of friends in February after a fairly strenuous safari in the Tanzania game parks. We had booked six nights to recuperate and initially were worried that this would be too long a stay for us 'active 50-somethings'. However, our fears were completely unfounded as we absolutely loved every minute with Paola... More

Rolling down the rocky hills of Zanzibar island's eastern coast, with a long stretch of pristine coral sand beach at its feet, there you find the majestic Sultan Palace Resort surrounded by its sumptuous gardens! This place conveys a sense of calm and peace of heart at first sight and you actually get in touch with its beauty and charm... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sultan Palace recently, for our honeymoon. While I generally like to stay at more modest and "budget-friendly" accommodations while traveling, for this trip I wanted something romantic and relaxing. While not one of the more well-advertised hotels on the internet, I came across the Sultan Palace after much internet research. I am so... More

Classy, intimate, hotel enhanced by its gracious owner Paola. There is no request too difficult for Paola, including meal choices. Every effort is made to not only accomodate guests but to discreetly assure their satisfaction Wonderful place to wind down after safari. This is a real hideaway. The beach on the Indian Ocean is beyond belief and actually seeing the... More
