The Palms Zanzibar
is located in the Bwejuu
area on the east coast of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
It is a very good quality beach resort set on a magnificent white-sand beach at the back of a stunning coral lagoon. It is very small size, with just six suite rooms, very much aimed at couples, with a minimum child age of 16. Elegant public areas lead out to a nice swimming pool and each room has its own individual beach-front sunbed area. There is a small spa and a wide range of facilities shared with the large property next door. The place is privately owned and has very professional staff. There is also a good range of activities on offer.
The main potential downsides are that the resort is very expensive, very close to other related properties and guests can encounter some expensive extras. The beach is not private and the lagoon very tidal. The lodge is too remote for some excursions around the island, the diving is not the strongest on Zanzibar and there is very little night-life.UpsidesActivitiesDownsidesSeasonsPricesTrips
