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

Exclusive, beautiful, magical and completely indulgent: The Palms Zanzibar! My husband Oscar and I spent 6 magnificent days at The Palms, overwhelmed and seduced by the experience. We've stayed in luxury hotels around the world, but this tiny place with only 6 villas - each private for a couple - had the most outstanding service we've experienced. Everyone from the... More

If you value privacy and luxury the Palms is the place for you. This was the ultimate romantic holiday location for our wedding anniversary. We stayed 4 nights and five days and every day was more miraculous than the last. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The operations manager was the perfect host. The resort is all-inclusive which can... More

What can be said about The Palms that hasn't already been said? It was the perfect place to end our honeymoon after 5 days bumping around in a jeep on safari. For most of our 7 night stay, we almost had the resort to ourselves and it blew away anywhere we have ever stayed before. The setting could not be... More

Stunning & secluded The Palms are a collection of 7 villas. Wonderful beach front access with each villa boasting their own day bed. Ask for Villa 5 set slightly apart from the rest with more space around it. Very intimate and private & wonderful beach front views and access. Loved the traditional chic style. Stunning plantation club style main building.... More

After the arrival greeting we were shown to our bungalow and from the moment that we entered, we just looked at each other in total disbelief. We had chosen the Palms because of the excellent reviews that it has received, but we could not believe that it was so much better than our expectations. We have certainly never stayed in... More

I am sure the reason the company does not use the word "hotel" for Palms is because it is far more than an hotel with rooms.how many hotels have villa's rather than bedrooms,have an outside bubbling plunge pool for each villa, have bathroom's the size of most hotel room's, the they also have an extra room en suite again for...

This was the last leg of our honeymoon and it was just incredible! It was made for honeymooners! It is so small and intimate, we felt like a king and queen! The staff was so accommodating and the food and rooms were just beyond amazing! I would recommend this to anyone! We had the best time!
