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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
