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

You can get massages and buy beach towels and necessities in a small localy owned store on the beach. Sunbeds are available.

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!!!

Stayed here for 2 nights in December 2013. Was lovely, a great place to relax. All the staff were really helpful and Laura will assist you with anything.
