Stayed at Twisted Palms 20 and 21 December 2016 and paid US$45 a night for two adults and a child in a bungalow with double and single beds, a private bathroom, mosquito nets and towels. Wifi access and breakfast are included in the price. Drinks and other meals are available in the bar at reasonable prices. Staff were friendly and...

This is the place to come if you want to chill on the beach, eat lovely food while looking out on the beach, sleep while listening to the waves... and meet lots of lovely people while doing all of the above! We stayed three nights with Zlatko, Ifan and the lovely people at Twisted Palms just before Christmas, and we...

We were at that restaurant and the meal was coming very fast but the burger bread was only a toast and the beef peppers steak was very salty! The salad and fresh juices tasted very good and the tempura prawns were very less for that price. I asked for the grilled fish and that is only three skewer's... For 15000...

This has been my 3rd visit to Twisted Palms in Zanzibar; and the best one of the 3. The new owner, Zlatko has done wonders with the place and is a most personable host. Twisted Palm has always been very special for me; after traveling 19 different countries on the African continent, I always consider this fishing village, Bweju, to...

We stayed over here during the holiday season. The staff is lovely-- extremely friendly, professional, and accommodation. The restaurant sits on stilts that runs out on the beach. It has fantastic views and is an incredible place to wake up to eat breakfast to or have a dinner at. The ambiance in the restaurant at night is great. We stayed...

We booked Twisted palms for our 6 day relaxing stay in Zanzibar after climbing Kilimanjaro and were not disappointed. If you are looking for All inclusive, 5* luxury, air-conditioned, crowded resort – this is not for you. However we found this to be luxurious for our needs with quiet surroundings, deserted beaches for long walks. We had a fairly large...

I spent 3 nights/4 days at Twisted Palms in October this year. I had read reviews in the Lonely Planet book previously and had the place in mind for a while when booking my trip to Zanzibar.

We only decided in the taxi on our way to Bwejuu that we would try Twisted Palms and did not regret it. From arrival to departure everybody was really nice, kind and helpful.
