On the most romantic of islands, The Palms is the ultimate escape. Ideal for honeymooners, the intimate boutique hotel lies on award-winning Bwejuu beach lapped by turquoise seas on the island’s south eastern shores. Generously sized, air-conditioned villas offer two en suite bedrooms, a living room and large veranda where a four-poster Zanzibar bed draped in silk overlooks a private plunge pool and the Indian Ocean beyond. Hand-carved furnishings, dark wood floors and colourful local fabrics blend colonial and traditional styles, adding to the warmth and character of the hotel. Exotic cuisine, inspired by Zanzibar’s fusion of cultures, spices and island flavours, is served in the antique-adorned Plantation House. Relax by the pool or on a day bed in a private thatched banda on the beach. Further recreations include a range of treatments in the Swahilistyle Sanctuary Spa, an unforgettable dive organised by the PADI Dive Centre or a host of watersports including surfing, kite-surfing and sailing, all available at local charges.
