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

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.

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.

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...
