The Palms On The Beach In Zanzibar

On the South Eastern coast of this exotic island you will discover an exclusive hotel that is both elegant and sophisticated. The Palms is an oasis…where rustling coconut palms, white powder sand and the warm waves of the Indian Ocean combine to create a stunning recluse for the discerning traveler.

The collection of only six beautifully designed villas offer luxurious comforts and amenities in an intimate setting with the most personal attention throughout your stay. If all of this sounds too good to be true, then read on!!

This is a small and intimate resort and the place to go if you want to be spoil. It is on a beautiful deserted beach.

It is the ideal place to finish off a honeymoon spent on safari, as it consists of only 6 luxurious bandas, so there can’t be more than twelve people in the resort.

Our banda was incredible, with a floor space of over 1400 square feet, with a bedroom, living room, full ensuite bathroom, walk-in closet, extra room with its own en-suite bathroom & a large furnished terrace with a view of the Indian ocean.

Facilities include: Safe deposit box, satellite TV and DVD player, private outdoor Jacuzzi, mini bar, air-conditioning, telephone and standing bar with tea/coffee making facilities I should add the fantastic views, and service you can only dream about. I believe there are around three times as many staff as there are guests, but they were completely unobtrusive, but extremely attentive.

Now The Palms is right next door to The Breezes which is a large international type hotel with the facilities to match. The great thing is you can use all of their facilities, things like diving, tennis, sailing, and I got the feeling that when the staff knew we were from the Palms we even got priority!!! The best thing of all, was that we could use their facilities, and use their hotel, they couldn’t use ours!!!

To be fair, you don’t get accommodation, or luxury like this cheaply. It is expensive, it is very private, and by the way the food is simply delicious.
