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!

We went here in January 2014 for a week as part of a 2 week honeymoon. It is a lovely little resort with only 6 private villas. On arrival we realized that for the first two nights we'd be the only ones in the resort which was amazing! The Manager, Siriak, was very welcoming and showed us to our amazing... More

After a long safari we spent six nights at The Palms - no better place in Zanzibar to recover and treat yourself! Excellent, personalized service, friendly and helpful staff and outstanding gourmet food. The villas are beautiful and very stylish. Endless white sand beach just a few meters from our villa with your personal gazebo. Everything you need to relax... More

What a place! The setting, the food, the staff, the villas - everything was just perfect for the second half of our Honeymoon. Not a negative thing can be said about this stylish oasis of luxury. We were spoilt from the moment we got there - chilled champagne awaiting us on our arrival, and then our "last night" surprise was... More

Staying here while on honeymoon was one of the best decisions ever! I will sum it up by saying the service, staff, food, location, villas, beach, and special “extras” were EXCELLENT! We stayed in the Jasmine Villa for the last 3 days of our honeymoon and the staff went above and beyond to make our occasion extra special. It was... More

three nights here with my son. The villas have 2 bedrooms, so we got our own space. Airconditioning was a welcome surprise. The resort is perfect, small but bookended by larger sister resorts that offer the snorkeling or scuba trips, yoga, spa treatments, everything one is looking for in a luxury resort. The tidal change is huge and we went... More

For travelers who want to keep a bit away from groups of tourists, couples on honeymoon or friends who enjoy great food, excellent and all inclusive service, stunning villas with all you need and more, and your very own private hut on the beach.

This is a magical resort. We were constantly amazed by the luxury of it all: beautiful rooms, paradise views, food better than anything we've tasted, impeccable service, extremely clean, and the most welcoming, relaxing atmosphere. Reading back on the reviews I can't believe that someone gave this place 2 stars! Things must have changed since then as nothing makes sense... More
