“Had a awesome time, absolutaly amazing!”
Reviewed January 2, 2011

We went for our honeymoon to Azanzi and could not have chosen a better place to go, everything from the staff, rooms, food and hospitality was perfect. Greg, Cara and the their team are running a very well managed hotel. The hotel is nicey secluded so it does not feel that they rest of Zanzibar is sitting next to you on the beach as opossed to other place in the north of Zanzibar. To finish off, we had an truly great time and can't find anything negative to say about Azanzi!

We booked one night in Zanzibar before our arrival and then set out the next day to find a place for us to stay in for the rest of our holiday.

Well luckily we happened upon this absolutely hidden gem. It was all inclusive for 2 people for under $300 per night.

The room was huge and very nicely decorated. Four poster beds with curtains, large bathrooms with big baths, and aircon that worked very well!

The resort itself is absolutely stunning. The pool is under shade but that is a great thing as in the summer heat it is so refreshing to jump into a cold pool.. The beach is really beautiful but does have seaweed washed up onto it. The hotel gives free rubber shoes so that one can walk out onto the reef without getting impaled by the thousands of sea urchins in the water.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was okay but it was better that most of the fare we got in Zanzibar..

All in all we had an absolutely luxuriously amazing time at Azanzi.. Well done guys!

My husband and I spent 7 days with the wonderful staff at Azanzi and loved every minute of it and were crying 'crocodile tears' when we were packing to go home.
The hotel is spacious enough to not feel crowded but small enough to get the real personal touch. The rooms were great and the highlight was definitely the outside shower - a perfect touch for this tropical slice of heaven. The beach is literally on your doorstep and is not crowded at all ....after another fantastic meal (an everyday occurence) we would stumble onto the loungers setup on the beach and proceed to spend another great day in Zanzibar - there really was no better place to be. If you are looking for a little more than sun, sea and sunshine, I would definitely suggest you take the advise of the staff and do the tours with their recommended operators - we did not regret one tour and they really were everything the Hotel promised they would be. We spent our Anniversary there and the staff set up the most magical dinner on the beach sand and made our evening super special - so if you are going for a special occassion, make sure you tell them and be prepared to be amazed. One of the greatest highlights of Azanzi is their staff! This is one of the greatest bunch of people I have come across in all my travels. They remember your name, your favourite drink and really care about whether or not you are having a good time! We would go back in a heartbeat and are planning to spend another great vacation there!

I have travelled extensively around Africa, hunting fishing and for leisure. I was surprised to find a hotel with such high standards in Zanzibar. The service, food and location of the hotel was amazing. The rooms are of 5 star standards. Value for money and I would not stay in any other hotel in Zanzibar. Fishing was fantastic and was organised by the hotel. Finaly thank you to all at Azanzi. It was a holiday of a lifetime.

What an absolutely memorable stay. The service was impeccable and the attitude of every staff member was absolutely outstanding. The tours and transfers were always on time and extremely well organised, and the snorkelling and diving was completely memorable. We loved every moment of our trip and time at Azanzi and thank every one of the staff for their kind smiles and warm service. Saving all our pennies to return as soon as possible!

We booked in for 3 nights, stayed for 5 and eventually returned for 2 nights before going home.
The resort is in a quite part of the island, with beautiful sunrises, friendly staff, amazing food, a stunning pool and a serenely relaxed atmosphere.
The staff are always on hand to assist wherever possible, with a huge smile on their faces. It is clear to me that they take pride in their work.
The management staff are second to none and can almost foresee every way to make your stay more comfortable.
The crew at the dive center (although not owned by the resort) are proffesional and eager to please, with safety as their primary concern. All equipment is in fantastic condition.
The cocktails are wonderful - thank you, Jabir!
To Shaun, Cara, Greg and all the staff - thank you for all your fantastic input into our most memorable holiday!
