The Palms has the feel of an intimate safari lodge... on a stunning paradise beach!

In addition to your villa, you have your own private sala, directly on the beach

Each villa has it's own small private plunge pool

The villas have 2 bedrooms, so are a great option for families with older children (over 16)

The resort facilities of Breezes & Baraza are at your disposal, right next door (spa, dive centre, tennis court, shop, etc.)

Like most of Zanzibar, Bwejuu Beach is tidal... so it’s generally not possible to swim at low tide

The Palms carries a high price tag (but we think it's worth it!)


The Palms has 7 villas, each over 140 square meters in size, with a bedroom, living room, full en suite bathroom, dressing room, extra room with it’s own en suite bathroom & large furnished terrace with plunge pool and views of the Indian Ocean.

Each villa features a sophisticated interior composition in all colours of coffee and cream where filmy caramel coloured curtains billow, dark grained polished floors extend and the décor is a unique marriage of colonial grandeur and traditional design. On the veranda, a silk-draped four-poster Zanzibar Bed accents a sunken, midnight blue plunge pool with long views of the Indian Ocean.

A fusion of cultures in Zanzibar has resulted in a unique cuisine, which blends exotic spices, fruits and flavours of the island. The Palms’ 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 coloured silks to crisp white linens.


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 architecture in an elegant yet relaxed setting.

Overlooking the beach, private palm thatched “bandas” shelter private day beds and carved sun loungers to provide intimate beachfront privacy.


The tiered swimming pool of tiled blue Mosaic complements the poolside loggia with a driftwood bar, shaded by mangrove poles and tumbling bougainvillea.
