Anna of Zanzibar - The Details

Anna of Zanzibar is just a one hour drive from Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and melting pot of Arabic, Asian, Portuguese and African culture. Anna of Zanzibar mirrors these cultural influences with elegant colonial style.

The turquoise Indian Ocean is pleasantly warm all year round with a twice daily high tidal range that permits an exciting variety of activities. Low tide is ideal for long walks all the way to the outer reef to explore rock pools and see the abundant marine life. High tide is for perfect for swimming and snorkelling out by the reef.

Room Descriptions & Facilities

Luxury Villas

Anna of Zanzibar is an intimate resort with just five villas nested in the spacious tropical garden. Your privacy is guaranteed. All villas are finished to a high quality with Anna’s trademark fusion of Zanzibari and colonial style. Three of the five luxury villas are suitable for family, triple or quadruple occupation. Each villa has:

  • A separate lounge area, a master bedroom, dressing room and bathroom.
  • Air-conditioning in the master bedrooms
  • A private veranda that overlooks the Indian Ocean.
  • A mini bar, an individual room safe, a hairdryer and wireless internet connectivity.
The villa bathrooms have recently been completely refurbished and a new room has been added to the back of the villas.
A combination of hardwood floor and ivory coloured terrazzo create a warm and comforting atmosphere, completed with Arabian mosaic lamps and antique brass elements. Four windows grant a lot of daylight in the new room and a separate toilet unit ensures privacy. The spacious walk in-shower offers the choice between a rain-shower and a classic telephone-shower.

Community & Conservation

Anna of Zanzibar supports its local community and is a firm believer in the importance of education for social change.

The Bewjuu School Project was set up in 2011 and aimed to provide proper school benches for children so that they no longer study sat on the floor. A local carpenter was brought onboard to produce the school benches from high quality hardwood to ensure they last for several generations. In July 2012, 80 school benches were finished and delivered to the school, the goal is 100, which they are well on the way to! Once achieved, the next project will be to renew the school buildings.

Anna of Zanzibar doubles each Dollar donated by our guests. Our goal is to create better living conditions for the children of Bwejuu.

Anna of Zanzibar - Opinions and Reviews

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our staff plus some genuine feedback from our clients below.

Anna is a high quality lodge that benefits even more so from being so small in size. The villas are well decorated and have a crisp yet colonial feel. Private plunge pools would be a welcome addition, but Anna is a good option where budget cannot quite stretch to other comparable lodges like Kilindi or The Palms.

All in all, the Beach is great, food is excellent and service impeccable. I am very confident in recommending Anna as a high quality boutique hotel and an excellent choice.
