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

Michael and his new assistant Nikki run this small but beautiful resort so well. With only 4 villas (the 5th one opening in the summer) you couldn't be more cared for. All the staff have a willing attitude and a smile as they greet you. Anything you want isn't too much trouble. The food is wonderful - every meal is... More

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.
