My wife and I stayed at the Sultan Palace recently, for our honeymoon. While I generally like to stay at more modest and "budget-friendly" accommodations while traveling, for this trip I wanted something romantic and relaxing. While not one of the more well-advertised hotels on the internet, I came across the Sultan Palace after much internet research. I am so...

Classy, intimate, hotel enhanced by its gracious owner Paola. There is no request too difficult for Paola, including meal choices. Every effort is made to not only accomodate guests but to discreetly assure their satisfaction Wonderful place to wind down after safari. This is a real hideaway. The beach on the Indian Ocean is beyond belief and actually seeing the...

Sultan Palace is a beautiful hotel and by far the best we stayed at in Zanzibar. In fact it was so good I felt I had to write a review about it, a first for me as I haven't written one on TripAdvisor before. We were greeted with a warm welcome from the owner, Paola and her staff and it...

Sultan Palace appears to have been one of the first 'boutique' category hotels on the island, having been opened in the late 1990s by its Italian owner, Paola. With only 15 rooms (primarily detached lodges/cottages throughout the grounds), it is an incredibly intimate and private place to stay. After a period away from running the hotel, Paola took up the...

Our stay formed part of a three-legged holiday: 6 days in the Selous game reserve, 6 days on the Zanzibar beach and 3 days in Stone Town. In brief, our Sultan Palace highlights include: - Beautiful surroundings characterised by well-kept gardens, ocean views, authentic interiors (ranging...

We stayed in Sultan's Palace in September 2011. We got upgraded to a large suite with a fantastic view of the ocean, so that was a double whammy. Rooms are large, beautifully done and have fabulous views. the sit-outs with the large divans add to the charm. Paola was especially warm and took very good care of us. Her staff...

In the words of my kids - "this is the best hotel we've ever stayed in"! But, seriously, the hotel is excellent. Run like a boutique hotel on several acres by the Indian Ocean, it has spacious, carefully done up rooms. The room we stayed in was larger than an average New York City apartment and the bathroom alone was...

We stayed at Sultan's Palace after safari in kenya. The staff especially the manager Sylvia were great and so accommodating. The chef prepared vegetarian meals for my husband - and every effort was made to make our stay perfect - this is a quiet hideaway - very few suites but magnicient surroundings. A perfect stop for a restful and romantic...

We stayed at Sultan Palace from 3 March to 10 March 2007 to get a needed break from long European working hours.

“Ocean view rooms are smaller but they have views. The garden rooms are more spacious with limited views of the sea but cost the same. There are also some more expensive suites facing the sea so it depends on your budget.”
