We came from ten days of game parks to relax at Anna's What a pleasure. Indiviual cottages (only 4!!) are spacious and nicely appointed. The facilitiy is right on the Indian ocean. Wonderful pool. The dining experience was superlative. All meals served outside, including a fish grille night and a Zanzibar eat-with-your-hands night. Management and staff very friendly. Good wine.... More

I cannot recommend Anna of Zanzibar, as well as Michael and the rest of his staff, highly enough. My boyfriend and I spent eight blissful days here in late January to escape winter and recover from a stressful few months, and it was exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries. The location was gorgeous and the service absolutely impeccable... More

Just 4 detached lodges, a good sized swimming pool, beach umbrellas 30 metres apart, 4 different eating areas, the beach cleaned daily, footbaths outside your room to wash that powder sand off your feet, more food and drink than one can cope with and staff so friendly you want to get to know them. This place is to die for... More

My boyfriend and I were staying at Anna Of Zanzibar for 9 days after Christmas. It is worth every penny, the service and staff are just wonderful, the rooms beautifully decorated and maintained, the food is fresh with laods of choice, and Michael is a superb host. The beach is so quiet, and there is the right balance of privacy... More

We spent our honeymoon at Anna of Sansibar and it was the best possible decision. The service was first class, all our wishes were fulfilled. The employees were friendly, obliging and always attentive. The hotel is beautifully located directly at the ocean and is very well maintained. Every guest has his/her own deckchair at the pool and the beach. The... More

As the Anna of Zanzibar is a small hotel, everything is very personal. Excellent food, great location, lovely staff. Everybody made us feel welcome. Highlights: Seafood-BBQ and Suaheli-Dinner. We loved the new breakfast menu and the possibility to choose where to eat: veranda, pool, beach. Booked trips were very well organized. Asante sana (Thank you) for a holiday to remember.
