We stayed at Anna for a week at the end of Feb/Start of March (just before lockdown!!). It was full when we arrived and again when we left but we also had 2 days with the whole place to ourselves in the middle. Anna of Zanzibar is exactly what we were looking for, The bungalows are huge (I think the bathroom alone was about the same size as my London flat), the bed super-comfortable and the minibar well stocked. The main house provides a great place for breakfast and dinner (we usually had lunch by the beach) and the pool in the middle was perfect for an afternoon dip. The staff were all superb, looking after everything we needed from a cold beer in the sun to a taxi to various nearby attractions including the Rock restaurant just up the road and the Jozani forest about 30 mins away to see the Red Colobus Monkeys. The weather was unbelievable for us so we mostly just sat under a parasol by the beach reading and watching the tide slowly come in. Anna is truly a sactuary of chilled out solitude. Top tip: bring some sea shoes and a snorkel as there are tons of sea urchins in the coral shallows but also excellent snorkelling in the crystal clear water (so warm it was like getting into a hot bath). We didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back.

Anna of Zanzibar is a very unique place to be! It only has 5 bungalows, so the most people that can stay in this boutique hotel are 10..... You feel like you are in paradise. The bungalows are qre unique and tastefully decorated and have everything one could wish for. The food is incredible and you can choose were you want to have breakfast, lunch or dinner (they set a beautiful table wherever you wish!) It is quiet and relaxing, the pool and beach are beautiful and it is VERY HARD to leave this wonderful place. Michael, the owner, and his beautiful wife take care of you at your arrival, and like the super nice staff, are there when you need them but are not overbearing with attention. The friendly staff just seems to sense when you are in need of something, and appear out of thin air to take care of your wishes:) A truly amazing, wonderful place to relax and dream ....

Stayed here for 4 nights and had the best experience. The staff were so nice and accommodating with anything we wanted. The food was amazing and the menu different every day. The beach was meters from the villa! One evening my son wanted to watch his favourite football team and the owner Mike was kind enough to invite us to his home so we can watch it with him!! What a fantastic place and perfect if you are in need of relaxation. The spa is also highly recommended.

Sometimes, I visit somewhere so special I don’t want to leave a good review, In case hoards of people decide to go! It would be lovely to keep it “secret” but Anna of Zanzibar is such a special place, it deserves a special review. Please don’t go here if you like lots of people around; if you like music and activities. Don’t go if you are not willing to relax. Don’t go if you want sparkling marble washrooms and state of the art furniture. Don’t go if you don’t like dogs and cats. Don’t go if you want speedy service at the snap of a finger. Do go if you want to feel special and nurtured. Anna of Zanzibar is beautiful in every aspect. If you want peace and quiet, lovely, lovely staff who really care, wonderful food eaten when and where you want, superb beer and wine, authentic accommodation with comfort, then this is the place for you. Just 5 bungalows each one very private. A mobile phone to link you to the manager, owner, or service. Lovely comfortable loungers round the pool or by the sea. We stayed for 2 weeks and could have stayed longer. For most of the time, we were the only guests! Thank you to the manager Petida, to the owner Michael, and to all the wonderful staff who became our friends. Christine and Phil from Leicester.

We spend a week at Anna of Zanzibar and wish it could be longer! The hotel is small and this allows for a truly personalized service. We got lucky as it was only four of us during our stay, but I’m guessing even with full occupancy it won’t be too crowded. The service is impeccable. Our rooms were made up/ turned down during our breakfast/dinners and we never even saw the housekeeping team, so it was like everything is being done by the friendly house elves 😄 The food! OMG the food is amazing! Don’t be fooled by the “all-inclusive” label, you won’t get your regular fare of huge vats of food. You have a choice of 3 appetizers, 3 mains and 2 desserts for lunch and dinner. Every meal is carefully prepared to your specifications. We haven’t had a meal we didn’t like during our stay! Everything was simply delicious. Michael and Petida are both wonderful and extremely welcoming people. They were doing everything to make us feel welcome and have a great time. The internet is a bit slow, except in the main house, so leave your devices behind, along with your shoes, and enjoy the barefoot luxury of Anna of Zanzibar 😉 Thank you Petida,Michael, and everyone at Anna of Zanzibar for an unforgettable experience!
