The Palms is the ultimate getaway retreat - a sanctuary for those in search of tranquility. This boutique property lies on the untouched south-eastern coast of the island, where the rustling coconut palms, white powder sand and the warm waves of the Indian Ocean combine to create a stunning recluse for the discerning traveller.
Overlooking the award winning Bwejuu Beach (chosen by Conde Nast Traveller magazine as one of the top 30 beaches in the world), The Palms provides a range of beautifully appointed main guest facilities reflecting the warmth and character of the local architecture. The elegant colonnaded terrace of The Plantation House leads into a spice inspired bar, and onto an antique elegant dining room where fabrics change daily from rust coloured silks to crisp white linens. An exotic cuisine is creatively presented reflecting the spices and flavours of the island.
The beachfront Sanctuary Spa offers a selection of world-class treatments designed to stimulate your senses and rejuvenate your soul.
Private thatched beach bandas shelter individual day beds and loungers to provide intimate beachfront privacy.
The Palms has just 7 villas, each over 140 square meters with a bedroom, living room, and a full en-suite bathroom and dressing room. Each villa features a sophisticated interior decorated in a 'coffee and cream' colour palette, and combines colonial grandeur with traditional design.
On your veranda, a silk-draped four-poster Zanzibar Bed sits next to your sunken, midnight blue plunge pool with views of the Indian Ocean.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
