Zanzibar, the magical island where the fusion of Arab, African and European cultures has created a pace of life, a style of cuisine, and a colourful tapestry of architecture, heritage, myth and magic that is found nowhere else in the world. On the South Eastern coast of this exotic island lays an exclusive property that combines effortless elegance with Zanzibari sophistication. The Palms is an oasis…where rustling coconut palms, white powder sand and the warm waves of the Indian Ocean combine to create a stunning recluse for the discerning traveller.
The collection of only six beautifully designed villas offer luxurious comforts and amenities in an intimate setting with the most personal attention throughout your stay. 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.
The Palms provides a range of beautifully appointed facilities reflecting the warmth and character of the local architecture. 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. 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. The fusion of cultures in Zanzibar has created an exotic cuisine, which blends spices and flavours featuring the best of the islands produce. The Palms is a sanctuary for those in search of tranquility…a place to stimulate the senses and experience the very best of the island of Zanzibar.
