Been traveling for 35 years, and this is in the TOP FIVE!!. Amazing food with great choices (and tasty house wines). Super relaxed atmosphere. Service: Kind, polite, intelligent and non-patronizing. beach: exciting, with very active tides and the blue, blue sea. Surroundings: Don't miss the monkey resort and the seaweed "factory". rooms: practical, comfy, spacy. prices; high side, but really... More

My partner and I stayed 3 nights in Anna of Zanzibar in August 2015, at the end of our 10 day Tanzania adventure and hold fond memories of this place. We spent most of our time on the beach, or beside the pool, dining in the restaurant and enjoying the piece, quite and luxury this offered. At this time this... More

We stayed a week here and really enjoyed the experience. The level of service is high, helped by the fact that there are only six rooms (small bungalows) and the efficient hand of the German owner, Michael, could be felt in a good way. The food was excellent - a combination of very fresh ingredients and dishes that were not... More

Anna was the first place we stayed in in Zanzibar. We were impressed with the lovely big room, enormous bathroom and delightful decor. The staff were very professional and extremely attentive. . We are especially grateful to Baraka who was very friendly and found my Kindle which I had lost on the beach. The food was plentiful and above average.... More

The only saving grace for this hotel is that the staff try hard and the location but every thing else was a nightmare or below standards. The food was substandard quality, we had to decide what we wanted to for the next meal directly after finishing one, the rooms were not maintained, our sheets were old ( with holes) and... More

Stayed at 'Anna' for a week after Christmas, it was fantastic - so glad I made the choice to book this hotel! Despite there being 4 of us sharing the Villa, the two rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. Each room had a separate AC unit so we could set it to different settings depending on the person. The bathroom... More

We've been here for a few days (staying for 1 week) and are amazed by this isolated and beautiful place, only 5 rooms each has its own area, by the beautiful beach, and it seems like they thought about Everything here!!! Quite amazing. Excellent service, kind staff and great food! Wow!

Just returned from a 2 week trip to Zanzibar, 11 nights were spent at Anna. Very relaxing time, staff brilliant, three asking you if you want a drink before you even realised you wanted one.

We spent 3 wonderful days at Anna, relaxation defined! Wonderful food and exceptional personal service from Michael and his team. They have a lovely spa too and can help plan trips around the island, once we were there though we didn't want to leave.

We stayed at Anna during the summer 2014 and had a fantastic week. The staff is competent and very nice - and the owner and his family makes the stay very comfortable. The houses are big and clean and so is the mainhouse and pool areas. John - one of the waiters - must be mentioned for his extremely serviceoriented... More
