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. It seems like nothing you ask for is too much trouble. The food in the restaurant was pretty good. Rooms are basic but really clean. You'll spend most of your time on... More

Spent 2 days here recently. It's a great location - quiet beach, lots of vegetation. The rooms are basic but clean enough and nicely put together. The bar/restaurant is nicely relaxed, with friendly staff. Even though we stayed at low season, the menu changed daily - not always something that happens in this part of the world. The managers are... More

Great living at the beach, a restaurant almost in the sea with nice food in the evening and a very nice breakfast in the morning and a great view. Laura and Renato are very helpful and punctual in organising all kind of trips. The space for relaxation around the rooms and restaurant is a bit tight, Not very much privacy.... More

I spent a week at Twisted Palms in April 2013 and it was exactly as I hoped and imagined. To walk out my front door and have the beach and ocean literally at my feet was paradise. Fresh seafood and cold beer from the restaurant; the lapping of ocean waves under my feet; afternoons spent lounging in a hammock and... More

We stayed almost two weeks at Twisted palms. And we would definitely do it again. Compared to all the other Hotels at Paje, at Twisted Palms you will find best service reasonably priced. The location directly at the white beach, with a nice sea view sitting in their restaurant. Overall much more quite than similar places around Paje. The restaurant... More

We stayed here for two nights, in a room with a little porch facing the sea, 15 m from the beach. The facilities are clean and since the location is at the end of the village it is nice and quiet. Good value for your money.

You'll be welcomed by the managers with a proper introduction (what is where, where to go, etc). The rooms are as you see on the photos, but you wouldn't spend much time inside anyway. Twisted Palms is a great chill-out place with superb food. We regret that we didn't stay longer.

Leave at home all things superfluous as at Twisted Palms you will find all you need to spend the holiday: the long beach of white sand for endless walks; a hot shower to cuddle yourself after a swim in the ocean. Also a meal that merges Zanzibar's materials with professional Italian-style service awaits on our stilt house beachside restaurant Find just one good reason not to catch up with us! ... more   less
