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.

Located on the beachfront, the Sanctuary Spa offers a variety of first-class treatments to help you relax and rejuvenate your mind and body.

Try one of their specially designed packages - the Kili Foot Treatment and the Apres Safari Treatment. The Palms Zanzibar also organises several excursions for their guests to experience Zanzibar: sunset dhow trips, tours of historic Stone Town and Jozani Forest and visits to a turtle rescue programme are among those offered.


The colonnaded terrace of The Plantation House leads into the bar where you can enjoy a delicious cocktail at sunset before heading on to the elegant dining room for a sumptuous meal. The chefs at The Palms Zanzibar expertly blend spices, fruits and flavours to offer an exotic menu of Zanzibari cuisine.
