We saatyed at Twisted Palms last weekend, four persons and we all fell in love with the place. Bwejuu is a beautie and peaceful beach in the east coast. Perfect place to relax and very good strategic point to go to many other places. It is ten minutes from Paje if you want more movement, ten from Jambiani, Blue Lagoon... More

We loved our stay at Twisted Palms! We arrived from Stone Town late in the evening and were greeted w/ a warm breeze and warm welcome. The ocean front bungalows are beautifully rustic, with just enough attention to detail to feel at relaxed and at home. The owners are so sweet and hospitable, going above and beyond what you'd expect... More

Spent two days at twisted after reading good reviews on treipadvisor. We only planned on staying one night but since we loved the atmosphere so much we had one more night! There's not much to do at this beach but relax and eat good food, so that's what we did. Carlos (the Italian manger) was so friendly and helpful and... More

We spent 14 nights in a hillside bungalow, with cooling fan and mosquito net, although we never saw or heard a mosquito. We did however see bush babies,monkeys, gekkos and lizards. The beach is wonderful, clean and soft white sand, with lots of beautiful shells to collect. The lodge faces east so the sunrise is spectacular and the sea is... More

Hotel is located on the beach with beautiful white sand, even that you can't swim in the ocean, for us it was the best in entire island. In Restaurant they serve very good zanzibarian meals. Staff is very helpful. Place is calm, there are almost none beach boys. Great place to rest.

Me and my wife stayed there 4 years ago (dec 2010) and we really enjoyed it. The beach is lovley, but on this side of the Island on low tide you have to walk a bit to reach the water. Anyway it is a simple and relaxing place. The owners are friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite simpel, but... More

Twisted Palms was exactly what my wife and I were looking for in our holiday. A tranquil, quiet and peaceful resort, with excellent service and friendly personnel - and that is exactly what we found at Twisted Palms. To Laura and Renato and all their staff: Thank you for an amazing experience.

This boutique guest house is a perfect alternative to the other large and expensive resorts in East Zanzibar. The managers Laura and Renato, were very friendly and helpful at all times - helping with changes to our flight schedule and serving breakfast early just for us when we had to leave early one morning. The rooms are basic but functional.... More

This place is great if you want a quiet few days by a great beach and good food. We think Bwejuu is better than Paje as it is not spoilt by hotels and kite surfers. We stayed in one of the bungalows back from beach. I'm not sure it is worth paying the extra for one on the beach though... More
