Words really don’t do this outstanding resort justice.
We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our 5 week long trip around east Africa and I couldn’t recommend a better way to do it.
There are only 6 villas in the Palms and we were fortunate to have the ‘Cinnamon’ villa which was at the end of the all the villas and furthest away from the restaurant.
The villa was beautiful. Furnished to the highest standard with living area, huge king size bed and big bathroom with his & her vanity. Private splash pool and day bed on the veranda area & then to top it off a private double cabana on the beach – we spent most of our days here…
The rate was fully inclusive of all meals and cocktails. Our meals were served in different locations every night – from the restaurant to the front of our villa to another completely private location in front of the day spa. As for the menu…well it was almost as if there was no menu as they tried to cater to all our requests – however in saying that, the meals that were on the menu were amazing – particularly the prawns!
We used the spa facilities at the sister resort next door as it catered more for couples. The Sultans massage was very special and in fact we were at the spa everyday.
If you are going to Zanzibar don’t bother staying anywhere else!
