Located on what is recognised as one of the best beaches in the world, Bwejuu, this resort on the south-east coast of the island is a true Robinson Crusoe experience.
White sand, deep blue sea, constant sunshine, tropical gardens, private thatched bandas on the beach and just seven luxury villas, each with their own large verandah, butler and private plunge pool – this is what makes The Palms so special. It’s a hedonistic haven for those wishing to relax and recharge after the exertions of a safari.
A very private collection of just seven villas, each with its own plunge pool and butler. The room rate includes all meals, drinks and daily afternoon tea, and because it is extremely popular with honeymooners, booking early to stay here is the best advice. Guests can use the facilities of the next-door Breezes Beach Club and Baraza if they wish.
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. Mixed with the exotic location the fusion of culinary skill with fresh ingredients makes for an amazing dining experience.
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 decor 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 - perfection.
Although children are welcome, there is a minimum age of 16.
