Traditional East African style

Diamonds Mapenzi Beach Club is set in a secluded spot on the north east coast of Zanzibar where a long white sand beach and tropical gardens filled with palms and bougainvillea trees complete the tropical landscape. Accommodation is scattered throughout the grounds and rooms are furnished in traditional East African style immersing you in Africa’s flavour. Enjoy a good range of facilities such as the Mvua massage centre, tennis court and watersports centre whilst the staff ensure a great personal service. For meals choose from four venues serving an array of local and international cuisine options. Two of these can be found close to the beach ensuring your thirst and hunger will always be quenched.

This is Africa.

Stockholm, Sweden

Before I booked one week on this hotel i was surprised by very good comments and hardly any negative comments. All the negative comments are word by word true. Its definitely not an resort and should not be called a hotel, i do not know who authorized it to call it resort. In Africa, meat, electricity and fresh water is luxury. The only luxury you get on this hotel is electricity ( Ac), hot and cold water for shower and fresh water for drinking (bottles). Just an reminder, the hotel doesn't have internet only at lobby which is slower my dead grandpa, one pool with a sea of bugs big as my fingers, beach full of beach boys(very very aggressive). The stone town they call "paradise" looks like 16 century underground slave accommodation. This has been an experience, and i know for sure that i will never put my foot in Mapenzi beach hotel resort again.

Pure Bliss

My wife and myself finally spent that long awaited "us" time, and booked a week (Sat to Sat) at Diamonds Mapenzi. From the time we arrived to the time we left everything was just awesome. We were met as we stepped off the shuttle by May, who was as sweet as can be. And from there on it was just a wonderfully relaxing time. The staff are extremely polite and helpful and always quick with a wide smile and a friendly "Jambo" and "Hakuna Matata". Food was plentiful and tasty. Our room was at the back but reached easily enough and had everything we needed. MiniBar is restocked every day :-). Pool, beach, amenities and the evening entertainment was great! In fact too much for us both to take it all in. The "animation" team are THE BEST! And what a luxury NOT to have TV! All round, a super experience and we will more than likely be back! Thank you Team Mapenzi!
