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...

if you're considering visiting Zanzibar, don't think twice and book at Anna of Zanzibar. The resort an amazing place, with 5 Beautiful beach side villas. But what makes the experience unique and memorable is the service provided by the owner and the staff. Mr. Winter welcomes you himself, shows you to your villa, and any request is not far fetched....

Anna of Zanzibar is a hidden gem! From the food, to the personalized service, to the serenity this place offers, I give it an A+ and four thumbs up (yes - feet count too!). They offer different food menu options every day freshly cooked by a different chef - not once was I disappointed! Beautiful sunrise, beach, pool, and cabins...

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of June. The owners were very welcoming, although we arrived several hours before they were expecting us, they provided us with lunch soon after we had settled into our room. We stayed in Hibiscus about half way between the pool and the beach, but there is little to choose between the...

We stayed at Anna of Zanzibar in June 2015 after a 10-day Safari and we had a wonderful time. It is about an one hour drive away from the airport. But you get picked up by a driver of Anna's which brings a cool box full with beverages - a really good start. Accomodation: There are only five Villas, so...

Anna of Zanzibar is paradise on earth, on a remote area on the South-eastern side of Zanzibar island. If you are looking to relax, away from the busy streets of Stone Town or after a long safari trip, this place is for you. As from the moment we arrived, we have been greeted by the owner of the establishment, Mr...

At Anna of Zanzibar, every detail has been attended to with the utmost attention. From the excellent food to the tasteful room decor to the excellent -- it's all top notch. One of dinners turned out to be a group-style seafood barbeque, which was a fun and interesting way to interact with other guests. The beach is superb and the...

We stayed one week in Anna and it was a great week! Anna is beautifully isolated situated on an hour drive of the airport and Stone Town. The (European) owner knows the island and has plenty of ideas for off the beaten track things to do: snorkling, visiting Stone Town etc. Anna's beach is splendid, with the breeze over the...

Difficult, really, to say anything about Anna's that previous effusive reviewers haven't already said. It helped to have come straight there from the rigours of an Ethiopian fortnight. It has that dark wood neo-colonial ambience that some people (me included) are such suckers for. The only people who would find it less than ideal are the frantic socialisers; there are...
