In 2007 myself and my family stayed here.. My husband and I were married on the beach in a private ceremony.. I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and the staff.. An unforgettable experience.. Paradise on earth 💖

After an unbelievable safari experience in the Selous we wondered if we could find something that would make the end of our honeymoon just as special. The hotel we had originally booked left us feeling so down hearted but then we moved to the Palms and everything changed. It really did surpass all our expectations and was simply unbeatable in...

The Palms is without doubt one of the most spectacular hotels I have ever stayed in. Having been absolutely blown away by our wedding and the Safari start to our honeymoon, Zanzibar was going to have a lot to live up to. The island and The Palms completely surpassed all expectations. Yes it is beautiful, exclusive, luxurious, the villas are... More

The best place to enjoy relaxing holidays. The service is unbeatable and the surroundings stunning. Although it is a very nice place for couples, we went as a family and had an amazing experience as there are plenty of activities to do around (water sports, tennis, shopping, Jozani forest...). It was really nice to get to do these activities at... More

I stayed at The Palms, Zanzibar and i can say is WOW! It really is like paradise here on earth! The beautiful, luxurious villas are outstanding. Each comes complete with its own plunge pool. Open the doors to the villa in the morning and you are faced with a breathtaking view of the resort. Each of the villas has it's... More

When we first arrived at The Palms after a 7 day safari in Kenya we were greeted by the manager, offered a delicious cocktail and anything we wanted to eat at 11pm. It was in the first 10 minutes that we knew we were about to embark upon a luxurious and idyllic experience. The service during our stay was impeccable.... More

Like a lot of the other reviewers, we stayed here on the final leg of our honeymoon post-safari and it really is the perfect place to relax and recharge. It's very small and private, with each guest having a huge private villa and individual beach banda to call their own, but with the freedom to use the facilities of the... More

We stayed at The Palms for a week on honeymoon. I can only add my support for all the other positive reviews. The Palms ranks as probably the best hotel i've ever stayed at with food consistently being equal to a Michelin standard anywhere in the world. All the staff are extremely well trained and attentive without being overbearing or... More

We stayed at The Palms for a week after a hectic safari. From the moment we arrived, we knew this was going to be a special stay. Where do we start…The villas are huge, luxurious and immaculately maintained with traditional décor. Each villa has its own private Banda, providing privacy and a breathtaking view of the white sands and the... More

We spent seven days at The Palms Zanzibar after a two week safari and to put it simple: we had an amazing time there! After arriving we were very friendly welcomed by restaurant manager Siriak. He introduced us to the hotel, our villa and the different activities offered. The villas are extremely comfortable and big enough for 3 people easily.... More
