East Coast, Zanzibar
  • Anna of Zanzibar

    Located on the wonderful white beaches of Zanzibar's east coast, Anna of Zanzibar offers you 'barefoot luxury' - a combination of individual service, a relaxed atmosphere and all the amenities of a five star boutique hotel. Situated between Paje and Ras Michamvi, Anna of Zanzibar is only an hour's drive from Stone Town with its fascinating fusion of Arabic, Asian, Portuguese and African culture. Anna of Zanzibar represents this melting pot of cultures in its design and style.

    From elegant colonial furniture over rich Arabian textiles and colourful African fabrics to Portuguese porcelain - Anna combines these influences and creates a warm and homely atmosphere in a breath-taking setting on the powdery white beaches of the Swahili coast.

    With only five villas spread in the tropical garden, Anna of Zanzibar guarantees privacy and exclusivity.

    In our opinion

    These villas are beautiful and for a honeymoon this is such a fantastic place. The service and food is great, as is the location and the beautiful stretch of white sandy beach it is located on.

    It is also a great place for a family holiday as you will all be able to stay together in one villa.

    We can't recommend Anna of Zanzibar enough.

    The main house is the heart of Anna of Zanzibar. This is where guests can meet for aperitifs in the evening, for afternoon tea or just for a chat during the day. The main house has the atmosphere of a private residence and is often referred to as the 'shared living room'.

    Two comfortable seating areas offer time to relax and unwind with a book from the library. For those who enjoy movies, on offer is free PayTV (DSTV) and a wide range of DVDs.

    A guest computer with wireless internet access is available.

    Meals can be eaten either on the terrace of the main house, on your private terrace, by the beach or by the pool. We offer a daily changing à la carte menu combining international specialties with Zanzibari spices. The kitchen's focus lies on fresh fish and seafood and fruit and vegetables that can be sourced on the island. In any case, our chefs are happy to prepare anything our guest's desire.

    On a regular basis the hosts invite for a lobster BBQ or a Swahili Dinner accompanied by traditional Taraab music, bongo drum sounds or the acrobatic finesse of the Capoeira artists of Paje.

    Guests can relax in the tropical gardens or enjoy swimming in the beautiful freshwater pool. There are several idyllic and private beach huts with sun chairs in the garden, where you can enjoy your day. Guests can also unwind by the beach on the comfortable sun beds with a fresh passion and mango juice.

    Anna's curio shop is situated just by the beach and offers a range of Zanzibari handcrafts, spices and fashion.

    For complete relaxation, on offer are full body massages in the small Ocean Spa, alternatively you can visit the Shisha lounge for an afternoon tea or a drink.
