We stayed at this hotel for a period of eight days, from the 19th until the 26th of August 2014. The food was impeccable and despite it being a Beachfront hotel catered for non-seafood lovers by providing excellent meat dishes at every meal. Each day had a wide assortment of meals and never once were we bored or had anything... More

Amazing friendly staff and management.Lovely resort which suited our need for a quieter type resort. The food quality was fantastic and the variety met our every need. The excursions especially with Scuba fish was fantastic. We will be back at some point.

I stayed at Azanzi for 7 nights 26 July – 2 August….it was an incredible experience! The rooms are very spacious and beautifully put together, the food fresh and typically yummy Zanzibarian. A wonderful place to relax and take some time out. Perhaps the best part was the scenery and of course the festive, helpful people working at Ananzi. They... More

Loved the location of Azanzi as this part of Zanzibar (North East) is not crowded with loads of hotels, and nor did we get a hundred hawkers descending on us when feeling like a quiet walk along the beach. Location is perfect! Azanzi is small, intimate & gives one the space to really relax & feel like being away from... More
