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

We were recommended this place and were not disappointed. The previous reviews here are very accurate. The villa was super nice and very clean, the garden was lovely and the food amazing. We were very well looked after by the friendly staff. We had a truly great and relaxing stay and would definitely like to come back one day.

It's a nice property with one of the greatest service. It has only 5 villas so the privacy is guaranteed and you have all the luxury to choose your food, time and place to eat it. We would love to give a super excellent rating to the manageress Ms. Niccy, who is a great human being and a lovely host.... More

We spent 3 nights at Anna of Zanzibar late January 2015. Anna has only 5 bungalows, so you are guaranteed a private and peaceful experience. With only 3 bungalows occupied, we felt as if we were "at home". The bungalows are spacious and nicely decorated. The bathrooms are huge - recently refurbished and increased in size, we learned from the... More

We had heard a lot about this place but hadn't got round to seeing it before. We see a lot of places with similar reputations as part of our business so its easy to get jaded, therefore it was an unexpected surprise to discover just how good it really is. We were met at the entrance by Nikki and shown... More

The food was fantastic and what made it even better was that you could eat it anywhere!! Also they were very flexible so if you didn't like anything on the menu they would... More
