You are a couple and looking for a perfect getaway. Or you are a creative person — maybe a writer, a musician, an artist...— who wants some quite to evoke the creative genie in you.Or you are someone who just wants to escape the humdrum of a busy life. Then a regular hotel might not be what you are looking for. 

AN Zanzibar is the homestay that you might want; even what you might 'need'.  And this one is not 'any' home-away-from-home. It is special. 
It is situated inside an artists village. 

You might want to stay here just so that you can tell someone one day — "I once stayed in a place called Zanzibar!" It's cool in that sense too!

Located just 10 minutes walk away from the beach in Chennai, Tamil Nadu (South India) and surrounded by trees, Zanzibar is a private bungalow within Cholamandal Artist Village on ECR. Tastefully decorated with art & antiques, it is the perfect retreat for a short or long quiet break.
Cholamandal is a working artist community and houses a museum of the Madras Movement. AN Zanzibar is located in this artist village.  Mamallapuram, the crocodile park and Dakshin Chithra, the folk art village are all nearby and so are excellent restaurants. And the beach is just 10 minutes walk away.

AN Zanzibar is a 2000sq ft two-bedroom house. AC & hot water available in both rooms.The guests can use the living room, dining deck (and terrace on request) apart from their room. The house has a 'no tv' policy, but there is a fine collection of books and a good music system. 

Shyam is the official host at AN Zanzibar. Apart from settling the guest in, he will also help them to plan their time with regard to places to go to, things to do in the neighbourhood and city. Call taxis, auto rickshaws and buses are readily available. Prepaid taxis are available from the airport and railway stations


  • Rs.3500 per night for double occupancy and minimum is two night. 
  • Single occupancy is Rs.3200 
  • Breakfast is included.
