We have just returned from Anna of Zanzibar after seven wonderful nights there following a Gorilla trek in Rwanda. The property is spectacular, the food mouthwatering and the service outstanding. Anna of Zanzibar is located on one of the best beaches in the whole of Zanzibar mile upon mile of white sand, with that wonderful sound of the waves breaking... More

My girlfriend and I spent 9 days at Anna of Zanzibar. The villa was in a picturesque location only metres from the beach. The villa was beautifully furnished with bespoke furniture and beds. The staff were highly attentive, without being over the top. The food was freshly prepared with a daily changing 3 course menu for lunch and dinner. The... More

We stayed at Anna of Zanzibar in September 2011. At first just fell in love with the place, since looked really beautiful and since there are only 5 bungalows not crowdy at all (you see hardly anybody except for the staff). Food was amazing, pool - not a big one, but deep; room - big bungalow, tons of space for... More

We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed being here. The food is great, the staff friendly and flexible, and the management very capable of running the place (during our stay there was a wedding of a Russian couple and the manager made sure it did not interfere with service to other guests). We managed to fully recharge our... More

Anna of Zanzibar is truly an amazing place. The food is excellent and the service is impeccable. Everything about the place is breath taking and I highly recommend it to everyone. The staff did a wonderful job of taking care of us during our stay and consider this place to be top notch. Thank you for the memories.

We stayed at Anna's for the last week of our honeymoon, and could not have been happier with our choice of hotel and location. The concept is great - the five villa setup ensures a small number of guests and plenty of personal attention from hosts and staff. The service is tailor made to fit individual needs and fancies, we... More

We stayed 4 nights at Anna's at the conclusion of our 5 week honeymoon travelling around East Africa. The service was impeccable as the staff were very customer focused, kind and polite, but what we appreciated was that they were also very down to earth and genuine. There were fresh flowers left in the room every day and it was... More
