For a truly authentic taste of island life, dreamy Zanzibar is the place to be, and the resort to stay at is The Palms. This luxurious destination offers a healthy dose of sunshine, sea and sand to revive the body and mind. With only six private villas, each with its own living room, bathrooms, dressing room, spare room and outdoor deck with private pool and expansive ocean views, The Palms boasts a certain exclusivity that just can’t be beaten. With the perfect pairing of local design and colonial opulence The Palms is the ultimate romantic destination.
Should guests feel the need to wander from their decadent villas, The Palms resort offers many activities and events.
For those wanting a water-based adventure, head to The Water Club where you can choose between learning to wind surf, kite surf or sail. You can also take out a pedal boat or kayak. Otherwise grab your snorkel and enjoy a snorkeling trip where the ocean is usually teeming with life. When the tide is low, hop onto a bike for a cycle along the beachfront or a visit to the nearby local community. The resort also provides many beach games such as volleyball and family sandcastle competitions. For the really brave, The Palms’ Rising Sun Dive Centre will accept beginners and professionals for a life-changing underwater scuba dive.
If watersports isn’t your thing, perhaps afternoons spent whiling away in the library would suit you better. The wide array of books on the history of Zanzibar, the animals in the area as well as a bunch of educational books, may enlighten you. There are also cooking classes, tours and excursions such as the Mangrove Forest and Dhow Trip, a visit to Bwejuu the local village or taking part in the Turtle Rescue Program.
And for an unforgettable unwinding experience, The Sanctuary Spa awaits. Indulge in a Thai or Balinese massage, a rejuvenating facial or even a foot massage.
The Palms is waiting to welcome you and give you the break you deserve.
