I spent 3 nights/4 days at Twisted Palms in October this year. I had read reviews in the Lonely Planet book previously and had the place in mind for a while when booking my trip to Zanzibar. In the weeks leading up to making my bookings I had struggled to get their website to work in order to find out... 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

This place just felt homely and friendly and relaxing! We... More

We saatyed at Twisted Palms last weekend, four persons and we all fell in love with the place. Bwejuu is a beautie and peaceful beach in the east coast. 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. The owners are so sweet and hospitable, going above and beyond what you'd expect... More

Spent two days at twisted after reading good reviews on treipadvisor. We only planned on staying one night but since we loved the atmosphere so much we had one more night! There's not much to do at this beach but relax and eat good food, so that's what we did. Carlos (the Italian manger) was so friendly and helpful and... More

We spent 14 nights in a hillside bungalow, with cooling fan and mosquito net, although we never saw or heard a mosquito. We did however see bush babies,monkeys, gekkos and lizards. The beach is wonderful, clean and soft white sand, with lots of beautiful shells to collect. The lodge faces east so the sunrise is spectacular and the sea is... More

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.
