The Palms, Zanzibar

Located on the South Eastern coast of the exotic spice island of Zanzibar, The Palms is an exclusive property that combines effortless elegance with Zanzibari sophistication. It is perfect as a honeymoon location, striking a balance of relaxation and tranquility with the option to enjoy full water sports and entertainment at the busier sister property just a few minutes walk along the beach.

The Palms is an oasis where rustling coconut palms, white powder sand and the warm water of the Indian Ocean combine to create a stunning beach retreat that we highly recommend for a beach honeymoon, especially after a few nights on safari. 

Nestled between tropical gardens and a white sandy beach, The Palms provides a range of beautifully appointed facilities reflecting the warmth and character of the local Zanzibarian architecture in an elegant yet relaxed setting.  Overlooking the beach, thatched “bandas” shelter private day beds and sun loungers to provide intimate beachfront privacy.

The Palms has just six villas, each over 140 square metres with a bedroom, living room, full en suite bathroom, dressing room, an additional room with its own en suite bathroom & a large furnished terrace with private views of the Indian Ocean and a four-poster Zanzibar Bed. There is also a sunken, outdoor plunge pool views of the Indian Ocean.

The Palms also features the private Sanctuary Spa in a beautiful ocean front setting. Guests at The Palms can also use the neighboring Frangipani Spa, which offers world-class treatments and facilities.

A fusion of cultures in Zanzibar has resulted in a unique cuisine, which blends exotic spices, fruits and flavours of the island. Our chefs have an exotic menu fusing just caught with fresh picked for a wonderful dining experience.

The elegant colonnaded terrace of The Plantation House leads into the Spice inspired bar, onto the antique-elegant dining room where fabrics change daily from rust colored silks to crisp white linens.

The water sports centre located approximately 300 metres from The Palms on the beach front.  Featuring a selection of water sports equipment and offering instruction in wind surfing, kite surfing and sailing. Scuba diving and snorkelling can also be arranged.

We recommend combining a stay at Palms at the end of a safari holiday in either Kenya or Tanzania. We offer a number of itineraries for a safari and beach combination honeymoon.
