Pearly white sand and swaying palms, turquoise seas and friendly staff, really quite idyllic and altogether possible at this beach lodge in Zanzibar. Guests will feel right at home and fully relaxed in such a restful place.
Guests can kick back and leave their cares behind, snoozing in a hammock or swing and working on an island tan from the sun lounges dotted all around, all the while gazing out at the blue, blue waters of the Indian Ocean. There is no such thing as a busy holiday at this beach lodge in Zanzibar.
There are 12 cool and comfortable, en-suite rooms some with sea view and others dotted around the gardens on the hillside amongst the coconut palms. Twisted Palms Lodge is designed in simple island style with thatch roofs; the beach is quiet and close to the village.
If guests feel the need for company, the lodge-staff in the restaurant and bar are always welcoming to visitors and on hand to help get the very best out of a Zanzibar holiday. Visitors can enjoy a relaxing massage and get their hair done or get into the island spirit and have a henna tattoo.
For interesting excursions on the island, the lodge-staff can arrange a number of delightful tours to explore this historic island and discover more about it, why its called the Spice Island and where to buy the best silk. Everywhere visitors can see cinnamon and coconuts growing wild.
At the end of the day, guests can relax in the bar over spiced tea or a drink and sample the Swahili cuisine a la carte featuring fresh fish caught that day. Some nights there is a beach bonfire with drumming and traditional Maasai dance.
