The Palms, Zanzibar
Exclusive island escapism
The Palms is arguably Zanzibar’s most exclusive and private resort. With just six villas fringing a pristine white sand beach on the quiet South East coast of Zanzibar island, its is an idyllic island retreat offering peaceful tranquility and pure escapism.
The six villas are each over 140 square metres with two full en-suite bedrooms, a living room and dressing room. Interiors are styled
in rich coffee and cream colours with dark grained polished floors and light curtains drifting in the breeze. The overall effect is one of bespoke modern design meeting traditional colonial grandeur.
Outside enjoy a large furnished terrace with views of the glittering Indian Ocean complete with a silk-draped four-poster Zanzibar bed and a sunken plunge pool.
Dining takes places on the elegant colonnaded terrace of The Plantation House where a carefully designed menu showcases the island’s very
best produce from big game fish to verdant fruits and vegetables and of course the region’s famed spices. The Palms’ spa boasts a
beautiful ocean front setting – the perfect spot to unwind with an indulgent treatment – and a gym and yoga studio is available for anyone who wishes
to remain active. Activities including diving pristine coral reefs, snorkeling, boating, kite surfing, and cycling aswell as a whole
host of beach activities and games.
The Palms provides an exclusive retreat for peaceful island living and barefoot beach luxury at its best.
