Situated on a pristine white beach on the south-east coast of Zanzibar, The Palms Zanzibar is a beautifully appointed villa resort reflecting the warmth and character of the local architecture in an elegant yet relaxed setting.

Unwind on private day beds - covered by shady palm thatched 'bandas' - as you look out over the crystal clear Indian Ocean. Enjoy a relaxing massage at the Sanctuary Spa where you can choose from an extensive range of therapies and treatments. Alternatively, take to the water on a snorkelling trip or keep your feet dry and enjoy excursions to historic Stone Town, the tropical Jozani Forest or spice plantations.
