Still used as the main mode of sea transport around Zanzibar Island, the centuries-old Arab dhow sailing boat is the inspiration for the architecture of the Azanzi Beach Resort.

Thatched roofs of coconut palm leaves shaped like the sails of the Arab dhows white washed adobe walls reflecting the sun-bleached powder white beached, overlooked by the tall coconut palms. Natural timber is used for the framing and finishing of the resort which can accommodate 70 guests.

Our opinion

Azanzi offers something slightly different from its smaller competitors without compromising on personal service. The Hotel is compact and beautifully designed to make the most of the sea breezes throughout.

We particularly like the fact that the pool is partially shaded by the restaurant on the first floor deck, allowing kids to play in the pool all day long without having to worry the strong midday sun. This is a small resort and not for everyone, especially if fine dining is important, but does offer excellent value and multiple board options in a good location which families will love.
