This unpretentious All Inclusive hotel, built in a traditional Swahili Style of whitewash & thatch, is in a prime location with lush tropical gardens, with tall palm trees and colourful bougainvillea, looking out to the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean. Stroll through the gardens, stretch out on a sun bed, bathe in the sparkling pool or challenge yourself in one of the many activities or water sports offered by the local animation team. Dining facilities include a main buffet restaurant, a beach pizzeria, and an á la carte restaurant, and 2 bars offering refreshing drinks, snacks and cocktails.
There are 87 rooms at Diamonds Mapenzi Beach with lead-in rooms overlooking the Garden & higher category rooms closer to the beach, all comfortably furnished in traditional African style. The 21 Swahili Rooms are found on the highest level, surrounded by magnificent gardens; The 36 Superior Rooms are closer to the beach and have a large private veranda; The 30 Beachfront Rooms are located virtually on the beach and also have a private veranda.
Although larger than the 'beach lodge' style properties in Zanzibar, this still has the same feel, but with more facilities.
