Absolute Paradise & Friendly Staff My wife and I stayed at Five Palms Zanzibar on honey moon - we arrived to drinks on arrival, had our bags drop off at our room and when entering our room had a very romantic surprise of flowers on our bed and "Happy Honeymoon" written in palm leaves. We had an amazing private romantic beach dinner with drinks at the beach bar after making it an unforgettable experience! The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating which added to our 10 day trip. The hotel has a private tour guide who is extremely knowledgeable and really goes to extra lengths to make your day trip one to remember. Great value for money and highly recommendable. We will be back!
