Sultan Palace


... is located in the Bwejuu area on the east coast of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

Situated north of the village of Bwejuu, this small and rather upmarket lodge is Italian owned and seems to attract a predominantly Italian client base.

The large central building is an interesting if rather inaccurate architectural pastiche of a Zanzibari palace. Set in lush gardens beyond, the rooms are more conventional in design and really are rather posh. At the top of the white sand beach below is a small bar.

Sultan Palace is a decent place which offers pretty high standards, especially given the price level. But it is somewhere we tend to recommend relatively rarely because of the dominant Italian influence.

The lodge is also rather too close to the very large Dongwe Club for comfort, the jetty for which you can see in the photo.

The majority of visitors stay here in this Bwejuu area for 3 to 7 nights, often in combination with other parts of the island such as Matemwe and Stonetown or the islands of Pemba, Mafia or Fanjove.

These coastal areas are most commonly combined with Tanzania safari options such as Serengeti safari, Ngorongoro safari, Ruaha safari and Selous safari, as well as Kilimanjaro treks, usually in trips of 10 to 21 nights.
