We just returned from Zanzibar after a wonderful week at Ananzi where we were treated like both royalty and family. This was the perfect getaway for my husband and I and our two young adult children as it provided enough together time and apart time, enough to do as a couple, for the children to do on their own with other young guests and for the four of us as a family.
We loved the intimate atmosphere of the hotel where we soon wondered around barefoot as if it was our own home (just with better food, thanks to the chef, who cooked some of the best food we ever had in Africa outside of South Africa. That Swahili meal was superb, not typical hotel food at all, but tasted as if it was prepared specially for you with love) The setting of the hotel is lovely, right on a wide white beach, and the diving center with a fun and skilled team on the premises, was very convenient. Bedrooms as well as the bathrooms are large and spacious, and comfortable. But the best is the staff, whose attitude is outstanding. When I e.g admired the way the vegetables was cooked, I was invited into the kitchen where the chef himself demonstrated the recipe to me. If you want to spend time in a hotel that is really relaxed and laid back, without nightly entertainment and loud music, and get into the slow and gentle rhythm of the island, you cannot get better than Ananzi. We strongly recommend it. Thanks for taking such good care of us!
