My husband and I spent 5 nights at Anna of Zanzibar after a week on safari for our honeymoon. It is perfect for couples looking for quiet relaxation, excellent service, and not much to do besides sitting on the beach, eating and drinking. The staff was very friendly and our beautiful, large private villa was set in quiet and beautiful...

The best service I have ever had. Excellent to relax, dive and go to the beach. All inclusive, great food, wine and beverage. Local handcraft very interesting. Many options to boat around, sunset cruise in a handmade canoe is highly reccomended.

Anna of Zanzibar is one of the most luxurious, relaxing, welcoming and generally delightful places we've ever stayed. The proprietor, Mike, appears to be running it as much as a lifestyle choice as a business for profit, though the prices are firmly in the holiday-of-a-lifetime range, and the rooms generally full. Rooms is the wrong word ; there are five...

We travelled with our 9 month old daughter, looking for some really relaxing down time with just the three of us and soon realised that we could not have found anywhere better. The concept is a great one, you are invited to treat the whole resort very much as your own, and it is executed beautifully...

What can I say? WOW. This is an amazing place and if I had to pick my favorite part it would have to be the food. YUM! Zanzibar is a strange place as far as eating options go so I would have to say that Anna of Zanzibar went above and beyond my expectation. I highly recommend the pumpkin risotto...

We stayed at Anna of Zanzibar for over a week in January 2012, as part of our honeymoon, and really enjoyed it. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff, and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. The food was superb with meals able to be taken by the beach, on our bungalow's verandah, by the pool or...
