When luxuriant zanzibarian naturalness joins the Italian taste and professionalism, the result can be just ... SIMPLY RELAX! Leave at home all things superfluous as at Twisted Palms you will find all you need to spend THE HOLIDAY: hammocks and swings to relax in, under the shadow of coconut palms the ebb and flow of tides, changing the landscape at every glance, the long beach of white sand for endless walks a hot shower to cuddle yourself after a swim in the ocean a meal that merge the zanzibarian materials with professional italian style service wait on stilt house beachside restaurant and ... when you are fed up with Twisted Palms (bet that will never happen?!) our smart staff can offer suggestions as to what else this wonderful island has to offer. Find just one good reason not to catch up with us! If you want the privacy of a bungalow just by yourself, where the quitness is make sure by the huge tropical garden where you are deepened and the view get lost between the green of coconut palms and the iridescent blue of the Indian Ocean, the Hill Room is exactly what you need. There are some steps to climbe, but you will have to make some movement ... or not? Otherwise if all the movement you have in your budget during the holiday is turning the spoon of your coffee or moving from the hammocks to the sunbed, than your perfect loction is the Beach Room. For sure you will give up your shoes at the Hotel entrance on your arrival and you will put back reluctanty on your departure. If the relax is the only purpose of your holiday, you found the right place! You could lazy lie down on the hammocks and the swings in the shade of palms and makuti, refreshed by the agreaable breeze of the Indian Ocean. The long white beach is perfect for solitary walks accompanied by the sound of the ebb and flow of the tides. Otherwise you could gather around the beachfire during organized evening. If otherwise do you want to use the Twisted Palms like a basis for the island discovering, ask to staff which is the best excursion for your requirement. You could try the emotion to swimm with dolphins in Kizimkazi. You could admire the protected kind of monkey, Red Colobus, in the Jozani Forest. You could enjoy a full see day at Blue Safari, with a boat trip, relax on the spit of sands and fish grill on the beach. You could discover the secrets and the origin of many kind of spices at Spice Tour. You could play with tortoises at Prison Island. Airport/Harbour/City Centre transfer on payment, Bar, Small Boutique, Free parking uncovered and unattended, a la carte Restaurant and Excursion information.

Restaurant
The restaurant is located in the Beachside Stilt house and looks out the sea. The menu includes traditional Zanzibar fare, as well as Italian cuisine reworked the Islander way. The fish, basis ingredient of local kitchen, is buyed directly from the fishermans when they arrive on the beach. The fantasy of our chef will transform, addictioning rice, vegetables, spices, aromes or coconut, in delicious typical dishes. The evening you will enjoy your candle dinner bewteen the african sky and the magic sound of the Indian Ocean : it will be a great experience! The cafe, also situated on the stilt house, it offers not only african coffee, spicy infusions and fresh fruit juices, but also a good choice of international wines, liqueurs, cocktails, accompanied by a soft music.

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms are large enough and well suited, however the garden view rooms are relatively distant from the restaurant and beach area. The food is frsh and very tasty... Generous breakfast included, loaded with fresh fruit!

An escape from Tourism

While at Twisted Palms, one can enjoy a peaceful getaway on the island of Zanzibar. Far from Stone Town, roughly 80-90 minutes, this cute little Italian owned Lodge and restaurant is a great escape from the tourist filled area on the western side of the island. The rooms are clean, theres hot water in the shower heads, and massive mosquito nets with no holes...definately a plus. The rooms are right on the beach, not even a 30 second walk to the water front. The staff is friendly and can set up all sorts of tours on the island as well as private buses to any part of Zanzibar. My safety is secure with miscellanous Masai guarding the front gate and beach front which is nice for that lone traveler or family. The restaurant isn't too bad either. A limited menu but great food. Alcohol is a little pricy but nothing out of the ordinary for Zanzibar. Location location location...some of the best beaches and views of the Indian Ocean and paradise.
