The best hotel experience ever! We loved everything about Tikitam Palms. Right after reservation, Dolleen contacted me and she was super responsive and helpful before our arrival. The moment we stepped in the hotel, we felt like in heaven. The hotel team welcomed us with great joy and offered us cold towel and fresh coconut juice :) The decoration of the hotel is amazing! We absolutely loved every small detail. Every meal we had was super delicious. They serve a four course dinner. You definitely get the 5 stars experience at the restaurant. GM Jan is a super nice person. He really took care of us. Every person at the hotel from housekeeper to waitress is well trained and super friendly. There are also plenty of activities. One day we went to kayaking together and the other day we wanted to play beach volleyball for which Jan gathered all hotel team to play together. It was an unforgettable experience! We really felt like a family. Would definitely go back again.

The staff at Tikitam could not have been more accommodating. After opening a few days early for us (and allowing us to bring our small daughter!), they even made her a high chair. They catered our meals to our tastes using the local produce and even played with our daughter in the gardens so we could enjoy a drink in the evenings. We had one of the best curries there! The whole resort is more of a small residential plot that has been turned into a 5* hotel. The gardens are stunning and natural, whilst the pool, beach and restaurant are well designed with tasteful local decor. It's probably worth noting that the actual beach is quite corrally which makes it difficult to swim or sunbathe on the beach but the sand reaches up into Tikitam's private plot so you feel like you're on the beach but can use the pool. There's paddle boarding and kayaking available . The villas are large and bright with floor to ceiling windows and the bathroom was a one of a kind experience. Jan and Dorleen we so helpful throughout our stay, arranging transport, excursions, food and even giving our daughter local gifts. This is our third trip to Zanzibar and we would not hesitate to return to Tikitam Palms again. Thank you so much to all the staff at Tikitam for being so welcoming and helpful - Grace is still saying 'Jambo' even now!
