We spent 7 amazing nights at the Palms and had the most unbelievable experience. Our honeymoon could not have been more special and romantic. Siriak and the staff (Robert, Kiba, Iddi and all the others) at the Palms were top notch. Siriak was especially amazing and went above and beyond to make our stay over the top. From the moment...

We were here after 12 days of safari and it was much needed. One of the most relaxing places! The food was wonderful! The accommodations were wonderful! The resort staff were wonderful! It was almost like having our own private island sanctuary! My husband had a stomach bug when we arrived and the chef went out of his way to... More

This was the perfect place to relax after a wonderful safari in mainland Tanzania. With just 6 rooms, everyone is made to feel very special. And the rooms are all equally amazing - a beautiful bungalow with your own plunge pool outside, and very luxurious and spacious inside. Each bungalow also has its own beach front cabana, overlooking the wonderful... More

We got upgraded from The Breezes Hotel to The Palms. The Breezes hotel was absolutely stunning, so we were struggling to understand how we could be upgraded; however The Palms was like walking into another world. We were treated like royalty and given a whole chalet for ourselves with the most amazing facilities. We had a huge bedroom, a living... More

It seems that the Palms is a destination of choice predominantly for honeymooners or those needing a period of rest and recuperation after a safari; we were in the second category, although some guests will fit into both! The reviews that you will read will describe in detail the excellence of the villa, the food, the sundowners, the amenities in... More

We arrived at The Palms dusty and tired after 8 days' safari and immediately were made to feel as though this was our own private resort. There are only 6 villas (the hotel sits between 2 larger resorts under the same ownership, so access to facilities like water sports, spa and so on is easy) and each one is vast... More

This was the perfect way to spend the last two days of our honeymoon- I am not sure any review will express just how wonderful it is to stay at Palms. The rooms are absolutely incredible, with a large living space, bar area, bedroom, huge bathroom with separate bath, toilet and shower, dressing room and a day room. There is... More

This place is absolutely out of this world, we've never stayed somewhere with such an incredible level of attention and service. There are only 6 villas total so only 12 people staying here at a time, which leads to the most personalized experience you could ask for. Anything you want, Siriak can make happen, sometimes without you even asking. His... More

Arrived back home yesterday and couldn't wait to write this review. This place is out of this world.
