With only five villas nestled in lush tropical gardens, Anna of Zanzibar guarantees privacy and exclusivity. The hotel is dedicated to the well-being of their guests and they spare no effort to ensure that your stay with all-inclusive service will be an unforgettable one. The architecture and the interior design of this small hotel are influenced by African, Arabic and Portuguese accessories, which lend each villa its very own individual ambience.
Situated along the famous white beaches of Zanzibar’s east coast, Anna of Zanzibar truly off ers “barefoot luxury” – a combination of individual service, relaxed atmosphere and all the amenities of a 5-star luxury hotel. The hotel is located between Paje and Ras Michamvi and is only an hour’s drive from the capital Stone Town and the airport.
The main house emanates an atmosphere of a private residence and is often described as “shared living room”. Two comfortable seating areas invite you to relax and curl up with a good book from the library. Meals, prepared by their excellent chefs, can be enjoyed on the veranda. Often, the host invites guests to enjoy a traditional Swahili dinner or a lobster BBQ, accompanied by traditional Taraab music, bongo drums or the acrobatic finesse of the local Capoeira artists of Paje. High tide offers excellent swimming and snorkelling conditions by the reef. The beaches are miles long and therefore perfect for long strolls or bicycle rides. Relax in the tropical garden or take a refreshing dip in the large freshwater pool, with a depth of up to 3 meters. Several idyllic gazebos with sun chairs or comfortable sunbeds and sun umbrellas invite you to truly unwind. The hotel offers as well a Spa which includes a wide range of treatments like massages, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures, facials and bespoke signature treatments.
