The Palms Zanzibar (South East Coast), Tanzania

“Six luxurious villas and a sophisticated restaurant with a relaxed feel and terrific location. Rustling coconut palms, white powder sand and the warm waves of the Indian Ocean combine to create a stunning recluse for the discerning traveler.”

Photo of The Palms

“You quickly learn to say hakuna matata (no problem) at the Palms, where Zanzibar’s traditional taarab music – a jazzy mix of Arabic, Indian and African sounds – sums up the laid-back atmosphere. Under an immense African sky, it has a magical setting between tropical gardens and a beach of pure white sand. Villas house the six luxurious suites, a happy marriage of colonial and exotic local styles.”
