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.
With only five villas spread in the tropical garden, Anna of Zanzibar guarantees privacy and exclusivity.
The Anna was a traditional trading currency dating back to the days when dhows negotiated the trade winds to the Middle East and India, and Arabic and Asian traders made Zanzibar their home.
Anna is also the name of the daughter and godchild of the directors who founded this boutique hotel on the romantic east coast of Zanzibar.
All five of the luxury villas are situated in the tropical garden with views directly onto the Indian Ocean. Each suite includes a separate lounge area, a master bedroom, dressing room and bathroom.
The rooms are furnished in a luxurious fusion of colonial and original Zanzibari styles and have private verandas overlooking the ocean and garden.
Full room service is provided on request and each suite is equipped with the amenities including a mini bar, an individual room safe, a hairdryer and wireless internet connectivity.
All of the master bedrooms are air-conditioned. Three of the 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.
Wireless internet access is available in the suites and the main house, RIM (Blackberry) and Mobile G3 connection is also functional on the property.
Set amongst swaying palm trees and bougainvillea bushes, Anna‘s Spa welcomes guests to relax and unwind. Only organic coconut oil and essential oils are used for the massages and the body scrubs are produced by a local woman‘s cooperative - The Seaweed Center - based on seaweed, coconut oil and natural exfoliating agents like coffee, sugar or lemon grass.
The main house is the heart of Anna of Zanzibar. This is where guests meet for aperitifs in the evening, for afternoon tea or just for a chat during the day.
Two comfortable seating areas offer time to relax and unwind with a book from our library or watch a DVD. A guest computer with wireless internet access is available.
Meals can be taken either on the terrace of the main house, on your private terrace, by the beach or by the pool. The kitchen's focus lies on fresh fish and seafood and fruit and vegetables that can be sourced on the island.
