About Palumbo Reef

Palumbo Reef Resort is located in Uroa, a village on the eastern central coast of the island of Zanzibar. The most fascinating way to reach it is by walking through the Palumbo Reef.

The resort boasts 97 Standard Rooms, surrounded by a tropical garden and divided into three-story buildings. Almost all of rooms face the Indian Ocean with its dazzling array of colours. Every room is decorated in an African style with a veranda or balcony, each with a double bed with a mosquito net, a fan, air-conditioning, a safety deposit box and a hairdryer. Suites and Junior Suites are also fitted with TVs.

The resort extends elegantly towards the ocean. Starting from the reception, you’ll pass by tree-shaded rooms and the innovative undulating swimming pool, finally stepping out onto the gleaming white sand and the amazing view of the ocean.

Within a short walk from the hotel, you can reach Uroa, a quaint fishing village of generous and hospital people. The hotel is built right on the edge of Uroa Beach. You’ll be fascinated by the different hues the Indian Ocean turns and by the white beach where you can take long relaxing walks and admire the sand banks during low tide. The beach is equipped with local handcrafted beach chairs, beach umbrellas and plush towels.
