Anna of Zanzibar is 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 amenities of a five star boutique hotel. Situated between Paje and Raz Michamvi, Anna of Zanzibar is only an hour’s drive from Stone Town, a UNSECO World Heritage Site, 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 breathtaking setting on the powdery white beaches of the Swahili coast.

All master bedrooms are air-conditioned. Three of our villas are perfectly suitable for family, triple or quadruple occupation due to the air-conditioned living room, which can be turned into a second bedroom.
RESTAURANTS & BAR:
Meals can be taken either on the terrace of the main house, on your private terrace, by the beach or by the pool. Anna of Zanzibar offers 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, the chefs are happy to prepare anything the 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.
