Diamonds is a large hotel set along the northwestern coast of Zanzibar that provides a less private large resort-style experience than other resorts along the coast, but has plenty of activities and facilities to keep a group busy.

Guest accommodation consists of: 93 deluxe sea-view rooms with private terraces and garden access; 16 sea-view suites with separate living rooms and kitchenettes; 23 villa club rooms with butler service, and one family suite with a living room, kitchenette, and two bedrooms, and; five bedrooms in the Presidential Villa, which features a large communal living area, a small office, and a large sea-view terrace. Most rooms have King-size or European twin beds and large en-suite bathrooms with walk-in showers. The thatched roofs add to the resort’s beach aesthetic that brings guests closer to the ocean and its inhabitants.

Facilities include a large lagoon style saltwater pool with a children’s area, superb water sports and diving centre, table tennis, beach volleyball and a Mvua African rain spa. Drinking and dining options are spread across the resort and along the wharf stretching out into the Ocean. Restaurant options include Coral Cove Pizzeria, Sea Breeze à la Carte, and Beach Grill. Some are situated outside for an authentic alfresco eating experience. Diamonds offers great ways to explore the ocean and the Zanzibar ocean culture.

If guests find time to get away from the plethora of facilities at the resort, there are plenty of things to explore around Zanzibar. Excursions to Stone Town, spice tours, and safaris to Tanzania are great for families and couples looking for a cultural as well as a relaxing experience. Children of all ages are welcome, and the resort does offer childcare, but this incurs a fee.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
