Sultan Palace is a very relaxed, small and friendly hotel located in the Dongwe area on the east coast of the island where there are endless expanses of white sandy beaches and also where the reef opens up to reveal the breath-taking marine life. This hotel is approximately 50 minutes away from the airport thanks to the fully paved roads that wind through charming woodland and mango and papaya trees. It is set within lush and spontaneous vegetation and surrounded by small fishing villages and plenty of walkways through the mangroves where often you will see Herons in flight.

The hotel was built in 1996 and has been refurbished since to ensure guests experience a perfect holiday. The Sultan Palace consists of 15 beautifully decorated suites which means that staff are able to offer a personalised service to its guests.
