SIMPLY RELAX!Leave at home all superfluous things as at Twisted Palms you will find all you need for a real HOLIDAY:hammock and swing to relax in, under the shade of coconut palms,the ebb and flow of the tides, changing the landscape at every glance,a long beach of white sand for endless walksa hot shower to cuddle you after a swim in the oceana meal that merges zanzibarian ingredients with italian style and service wait for you at our stilt house beachside restaurant and... when you are fed up with Twisted Palms (we bet that will never happen?!) we can offer suggestions as to what else this wonderful island has to offer.At our hotel you will NOT find:television, newspapers, music, animators, air conditioner, minibar, swimming pool, nightlife ... the Twisted Palms is a simple and relaxing place!Our 10 rooms are furnished with double beds (9 of them with an extra single bed), fan (air conditioner is not necessary as there is always a breeze), windows and bed mosquito nets, ensuite bathroom with shower and hot water and a private veranda to relax in.

Here your view gets lost between the green of coconut palms and the iridiscent blue of the Indian Ocean. There are some steps to climbe, but you will have to make some training ... or not?BeachIf all the exercise you have planned during the holiday is stirring your coffee or moving from hammock to sunbed, then your perfect location is the beach room.

The menu includes traditional Zanzibar fare, as well as Italian cuisine reworked the Islander way. Fish is the main ingredient, and comes to us directly from local fischermen.
