"Incredible."
We arrived in Zanzibar late at night with our college aged son after a week in the Masai Mara. The best resorts are on the far side of the island (East) away from Stone Town so expect about an hour drive. When we got to the Anna around 10:30pm, the proprietor, Michael, was waiting for us and had the chef fix a late dinner (typical of the service we received). The staff was incredibly friendly, kind and attentive as was Michael and his wife. This is a small boutique resort with 5 individual villas which are very spacious. Very large (500') bedrooms and large sitting rooms (400') and very large bathrooms. Essentially small houses. My son slept in the sitting room (which is sealed with doors) and there was not a cot but a full sized bed there waiting for him. The villas are beautiful with carved wood everywhere and excellent internet throughout. At each meal we were asked when we wanted to eat the next meal and where it should be set up (on the beach, on our Villa veranda, by the pool or on the lodge porch. The property is very private, has an on-site spa and the beach is an endless vista of white sand for walking or running. This is an amazing property, incredibly well run with a staff that will arrange or do anything for you to make sure your stay is great. The Anna is a gem of Zanzibar.

"Great Getaway place"
The overall stay was great. Although it was little far from stone town, there are lot of activities which can be enjoyed. Support from staff was excellent, as we arrived late, they opened the restaurant hour after the closing time. view from the room was great. sea was warm and easy access to the water from the stay. Just one downside. there were few mosquitos, so better get prepared. Although they provide mosquito repellant and sprays, its just not enough at the night time.

"Comfort like at home"
We stayed in Kisiwa house 20th of May to 25th of May. The hotel is located in stone town old resident area. Here you can see the daily life of people. The hotel room is reasonable big, the ceiling is around 4 meters high, this gives you a very spacious feeling. The house keepers came 2 times a day to tidy up the room, spray mosquito, turn on the air conditioner for the guests. I never experienced such a good service in any other hotel. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and always greet you with smile. They don't take tips which are left in the room, only if you put the tip in the tip box at reception, which is for all the hotel staff to share. The day we left, almost all the hotel staff came out to say good bye to us. We will never forget this place and will definitely come back!

"Beautiful, Friendly, Fascinating"
Staff was undoubtedly the most considerate, best trained, thoughtful and improvisational of anywhere I have ever stayed, bar none and that includes lots of Shangri-Las, Peninsulas, Four Seasons, Ritzes and so on. It's a small mostly tourist hotel but I had friendly conversations -- and unusually creative, thoughtful and staff-initiated contacts on items from meals to hallway gadgets to knowing how to light a photo of me in the dining room to walking and shopping. Also a very clean property with lovely rooms and good views. Finally, Stone Town Zanzibar has centuries of history, and is tourist friendly like may UN World Heritage city centers...but not over-run with tourists. Very happy.

Everything is so well put together and you can tell it was made with a lot of care.
