It has fantastic views and is an incredible place to wake up to eat breakfast to or have a dinner at. The ambiance in the restaurant at night is great. We stayed... More

We booked Twisted palms for our 6 day relaxing stay in Zanzibar after climbing Kilimanjaro and were not disappointed. If you are looking for All inclusive, 5* luxury, air-conditioned, crowded resort – this is not for you. However we found this to be luxurious for our needs with quiet surroundings, deserted beaches for long walks. We had a fairly large... More

We only decided in the taxi on our way to Bwejuu that we would try Twisted Palms and did not regret it. From arrival to departure everybody was really nice, kind and helpful. The new owner together with his very kind and skilled team made the last days of our holiday in Tanzania/Zanzibar perfect. The beachfront lodges were very clean,... More

Perfect place to relax and very good strategic point to go to many other places. It is ten minutes from Paje if you want more movement, ten from Jambiani, Blue Lagoon... More

We loved our stay at Twisted Palms! We arrived from Stone Town late in the evening and were greeted w/ a warm breeze and warm welcome. The ocean front bungalows are beautifully rustic, with just enough attention to detail to feel at relaxed and at home.
