Diamonds Star of the East

A stunning barefoot sanctuary set on the north-western tip of Zanzibar, Diamonds Star of the East’s 11 delightful villas face a gleaming white sand beach that meets the Indian Ocean. With personal butler service, an African rain spa, a private beach and a wealth of water sports, this is the place for an exclusive beach holiday on this mysteriously exotic island.

Each of the one and two-bedroom Star of the East villas sits in a beautiful tropical garden filled with radiant flowers. Blending into the environment, the villas are a combination of Swahili-style and contemporary flair with thatch roofs and crisp, white modern buildings. Each has its own private plunge pool and terrace and swathes of white muslin surround the four-poster beds.

Wake at Diamonds Star of the East to fabulous sea views framed by the floor-to-ceiling windows. Sit on your terrace and your butler will bring you your breakfast as you contemplate your day indulging in water sports or a trip to Stone Town.
