The hotel was excellent with high quality, spacious rooms, great restaurant and the staff welcoming and helpful. The hotel is perfectly situated on the North Eastern side of the island with good access to the... More

What a week we had! Rooms are enormous, tasty food and loved that the lunch & dinner menus were more a la carte rather than buffet. Views you could melt in. All inclusive makes it such an easier holiday. Had a couple issues with housekeeping but they were resolved quickly. Very friendly staff and the massages were perfect. Am so... More

Spent a week at Azanzi and thoroughly enjoyed it from the various different meals on the menu to all the activities that the Hotel arranged. The couples massage was most definitely one of the highlights of the stay. All in all an awesome place to have an R & R or couples get away.

Hands down the best place to stay in Zanzibar. Well managed by Cara and Andrea. Friendly staff especially Amos & Winfrieda. The food was divine and we were spoiled for choice with every meal. Clean and spacious room. Facilities were excellent. We loved every day there and will definitely return next year.
