We spent 5 nights at Azanzi after spending 5nights further down the coast. We went with another couple who agreed with us that Azanzi was definitely one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. Their staff are their greatest asset!! There is nothing that is to much to ask them! They go out of their way to get... More

We stayed in Azanzi Beach Hotel for 4 nights. We booked it based on the reviews read online and it was definitely the right choice!

Everyone is very friendly, from Management down to cleaning staff. Cara and Jan could not have done more to make our holiday any better. They really care about their guests. Every night there is a different theme, be it a beach "braai" or a seaford BBQ, Swahili Evening, very entertaining musical group, or a lone minstrel playing his instrument between... More

We have just returned form our 7 day honeymoon at Azanzi. We had the most amazing time and the resort was exactly what we were looking for. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. The resort is not too big or commercial and it had a nice rustic authentic feel. There are a lot of really... More

I spent 4 nights at Azanzi in early July. Overall at just over 600GBP for 2 of us for 4 nights all inclusive I thought this was excellent value for money. The hotel is pretty small and low key but very relaxing Location Matemwe beach is quiet, really quiet. Just a few beach boys and lots of local fishermen and... More

Don't ever go in May as this is their end of season. They close for a month because of the rain and because of renovations to be done. We were unfortunate enough to be moved here after our original resort burnt down - and we had an apparent upgrade. All a lie fabricated by The Holiday Factory - who seemingly... More

Dear Nadia Once again our apologies on behalf of Azanzi. It is always unfortunate when you book with a particular hotel and then because of unforeseen circumstances you are moved to another, your expectations are going to be different. All hotels Äll Inclusive" package varies. The only difference was that our cocktails are not included. I quickly tried to rectify... More

Spent a very enjoyable week of winter break here. Comfortable rooms (112 and 114) feature great outdoor showers but had no view. Food is very good with enough variety for even fussy eaters. The seafood was particularly good. Service is very friendly and helpful in an island style sort of way. Just isn't enough on offer for busy teenagers and... More

Absolutely loved our stay here. Great staff, delicious food, amazing room service, great rooms and very helpful staff. Our airport transfer picked us up at midnight. The diving with scuba zanzibar was epic. Frank is awesome. The coral walk is beautiful-do it. Dont take the glass canoes out when the tide is too high and the water is rough. They... More

We travelled to three different hotels in Zanzibar for our Honeymoon and Azanzi was by far the best of the three. Fatastic service and amazing food. Azanzi is the only hotel of the three hotels that we would revisit.
