Anna of Zanzibar is a hidden gem! From the food, to the personalized service, to the serenity this place offers, I give it an A+ and four thumbs up (yes - feet count too!). They offer different food menu options every day freshly cooked by a different chef - not once was I disappointed! Beautiful sunrise, beach, pool, and cabins... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of June. The owners were very welcoming, although we arrived several hours before they were expecting us, they provided us with lunch soon after we had settled into our room. We stayed in Hibiscus about half way between the pool and the beach, but there is little to choose between the... More

We stayed at Anna of Zanzibar in June 2015 after a 10-day Safari and we had a wonderful time. It is about an one hour drive away from the airport. But you get picked up by a driver of Anna's which brings a cool box full with beverages - a really good start. Accomodation: There are only five Villas, so... More

Anna of Zanzibar is paradise on earth, on a remote area on the South-eastern side of Zanzibar island. If you are looking to relax, away from the busy streets of Stone Town or after a long safari trip, this place is for you. As from the moment we arrived, we have been greeted by the owner of the establishment, Mr... More

At Anna of Zanzibar, every detail has been attended to with the utmost attention. From the excellent food to the tasteful room decor to the excellent -- it's all top notch. One of dinners turned out to be a group-style seafood barbeque, which was a fun and interesting way to interact with other guests. The beach is superb and the... More

We stayed one week in Anna and it was a great week! Anna is beautifully isolated situated on an hour drive of the airport and Stone Town. The (European) owner knows the island and has plenty of ideas for off the beaten track things to do: snorkling, visiting Stone Town etc. Anna's beach is splendid, with the breeze over the... More

Difficult, really, to say anything about Anna's that previous effusive reviewers haven't already said. It helped to have come straight there from the rigours of an Ethiopian fortnight. It has that dark wood neo-colonial ambience that some people (me included) are such suckers for. The only people who would find it less than ideal are the frantic socialisers; there are... More

This is an exceptional boutique resort with personalised butleresque type service to the individual villas. Our villa was of a very high standard and had all the creature comforts, the staff and service were outstanding and the tailored menu was superb. Each day brought a wonderful new appetising high quality food surprise. This was one of the most complete boutique... More
