If you like a place, a hotel, not like the others on zanzibar just go to Palm Beach Inn. The rooms a romantic and clean close to the beach. The staff is very friendly and the food is the best on the island. The hotel manager and his staff will help you with every means to get around the island... More

My husband stayed 4 nights at the lovely Palm Beach Inn. We chose this location after reading the website and learning about their philosophy on supporting community. The owners, Mama Naila and her son Mahfuhd are doing a lot of great work toward this. When we arrived at the airport, the owner, Mama Naila came with the driver to greet... More

I came across this property by accident...I was facilitating a workshop for UNESCO and needed a place to stay. Arriving at 10pm was not the best time to see things...as well, the electricity was still out and had been for a few hours..(should be no power outages by the end of Nov 2012). In any case my colleague and I... More

This was a wonderful place to escape to. We really enjoyed chilling by the pool here and having some fantastic retreats, to the south of the island to hang out with dolphins, then north of Bwejuu up to the peninsula to watch the sun set over the sea. The staff organised a fantastic meal for us on a private beach... More

This is a lovely property - and I recommend it. The views are 5 star, but the accomodations simple (2 star). The food is quite good, and the staff helpful, which is what makes this place wonderful and why it is a wondeful value hotel. The staff went out of their way to accomodate my gluten free diet, surprising me... More

We were looking for a really relaxing place by the beach to chill out for a few days. Palm Beach was definitely that, with a spacious and breezy room overlooking the beach (we didn't need the aircon at all). There is also a pool, which is good as the sea retreats a long way at low tide, although this gives... More

If you need to recharge and want a secluded private tropical paradise, this is it. Great, spacious villas, good customer service, live music at dinner, great food, nice pool, private beach cabana, great breeze..... Will definitely go again. Peaceful environment, great stress detoxer!

I wish to tell you, if you are travelling to the east coast of Zanzibar ie Paje or Bwejuu ... and are looking to chill in comfort and peace ... look no further. I absolutely enjoyed the entire experience of staying at the Palm Beach Inn. The staff... More

We stayed three nights in this most delightful hotel. It's on the beach and the staff was extremely pleasant in taking care of our every need. This hotel was recommended to us by Simon Gluckman of Intrepid Expeditions.
