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.

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

Twisted Palms professionally organised everything for us including airport pick-up and transfer, great food, mostly sea-food from the stilt-restaurant and quiet time on the hill...Renato and Laura are truly great hosts and give you all info you need for your stay,...

Stayed 4 nights in mid June right after they opened for the season. Clean basic room with a wonderful hot shower. Quiet beach with lots of shells and safe walking. Make sure and take beach/water shoes if you go into the water. Also, pay the extra price to get a room on the beach! Best chapatti ever!!!
