Riu Palace Zanzibar


Stretching over 10 hectares and with sea views from most of the resort, Riu Palace Zanzibar has 100 luxurious rooms set in beautiful, manicured gardens. The Indian Ocean sparkles from sunrise to sunset and the gleaming white melt-between-your-toes sands isn’t half bad either. Fill your days with snorkelling, kayaking or exploring the exotic island of Zanzibar – or you could do nothing!
