We arrived at Anzani only because we checked out early from another local establishment because it was so awful. Just as we knew that we had made an error as soon as we arrived at our initial, intended hotel, Anzanzi felt right just as soon as the entrance door was slid open.This hotel is very compact and quite isolated which...

For my 50th Birthday I decided to climb Kilimanjaro. As a reward for completing it we went to Zanzibar . . . . Flights were on time and the luggage decided to stay with us. We were welcomed by an air-conditioned kombi. Our guide / co-pilot had 40 minutes to tell us all that we needed to do, plus we... More

Cara greeted us with a big smile and tons of friendliness. After explaining how things worked, we went off to our rooms and started our wonderful holiday. The rooms were immaculate, the staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was really superb.

Just back from 10 days at Azanzi - very relaxing and memorable family holiday. Azanzi is a warm and friendly lodge with good facilities, excellent food and the best hotel staff I have ever experienced (everyone, including the managers, went out of their way to be welcoming, attentive and accommodating). The rooms are a generous size with a great bathroom.... More

Stayed here for 4 days. In my opinion, best resort in Zanzibar. The staff are incredible, food was amazing, and the general vibe of all the other guests was great. Jan and Carra are great, and go beyond what is expected of them from the guests. Scubafish are also within the resort, the best dive operator on the island. Diving... More
