The staff was great and very friendly. If you looking for a nice relaxed getaway then this is the perfect place My only suggestion is... More

If you wanna relax, like sunbathing and good food, that's the place to be! We have been there for 3 days and really enjoyed our stay - all we wanted to do is to relax - therefore it is absolutely excellent! Good and friendly service, lovely food, very clean rooms!

we had the best time at the Azanzi! the management and staff can't do enough for you. Lovely location and fantastic food. Our room was just lovely and had a view of the Indian ocean.

We had the best seven days in Azanzi Beach Resort, from start to finish. It was a break we really needed and the resort provided us with all the facilities for a relaxing and wonderful holiday and rest.

Let's start with the best: The food is simply amazing. The chef is a wizzard. I like all kinds of fish and seafood and I was not disappointed. But everything was great, even the breakfast omelettes. The next great thing at Azanzi is the staff. So friendly, funny and helpful. (Ok I am not that surprised because I have experienced... More

General The hotel is slightly cramped. The bungalows are on top of each other, but designed in such a way that you still have your privacy. The hotel's private beach is a bit small to spend time there comfortably, but they do have a very nice viewing lounge and chairs set out on the public beach. The main area is... More

My husband and I spent a week at Azanzi for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We took this package because it was all inclusive, accommodation, flights, transfers, food and local drinks. We had an absolutely wonderful time without a care in the world. From the time we landed we were royally spoiled. The resort is very relaxing with plenty to... More

We've just returned from Zanzibar and this was a great place to stay. The hotel itself is a little "tired"and the bar service at the downstairs bar was very slow, but the food was great, the management is "hands on", it's a small hotel so you are treated as a person, and not a number! I would recommend the downstairs... More
