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

All I can say is thank you to Ramon and the great LOCAL staff of Azanzi. Everything about this hotel was great until we went with Dewald and Jessica to Waikiki for their first beach party of the new season. Both Dewald and Jessica was so drunk that I was ashamed to be associated with this hotel. Jessica passed out... More

We spent 10 days in Zanzibar at Azanzi. There is not a single thing I can complain about, the staff were awesome, the food delicious. The hotel organised us trips all around Zanzibar and we got to experience a lot of what there is to offer. There is no doubt I will be going back.
