We had the greatest time ever , we spent 7 nights there on the full board package (well worth it) Room was neat and spacious with indoor and outdoor shower. I think that one of the best parts was the pool that is placed almost underneath the bar and dining room structure , this makes it very nice to swim...

We booked through Flightcentre on a full board package so all our meals and selected drinks were included. On arrival we were welcomed warmly with very tasty cocktails. We were also upgraded to a deluxe room with a jacuzzi and a...

We spent 7 week there and we absolutely loved it! Beautiful hotel with stunning rooms, specially the ones with sea view! Always clean, food always delicious! The first night we had barbecue at the beach - we just couldn't believe it was so good! We really enjoyed the stay there!

This place was great. The staff could not do enough for us. We were there as part of a deal negotiated by a scuba group. Scuba Fish, the firm based at Azanzi, was great. No problems for the timid snorkeler. Our deal was fully inclusive so no problem with extra costs. The choice of food was great. The staff turn...

The hotel staff were very welcoming, the room was always clean, we stayed for 7 days and got to try three different buffet nights (seafood, meat grill, swahili cuisine). The hotel is very well located to spend days snorkelling at the Mnemba atholl, and only 25min drive to Nungwi beach. I would definitely recommended this hotel

We stayed at Azanzi for our honeymoon in October 2016. We took an all inclusive package including plane tickets through a travel agency. The hour taxi ride was smooth and without fault.
