Surrounded by an infinite palette of colours and the scent of African spices, Diamonds Star of the East, is the most exclusive resort on the island of Zanzibar, the flagship of the Diamonds Resorts brand of the Planhotel Hospitality Group and affiliated with the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
Eleven exclusive villas make up this boutique hotel, where privacy and discretion go hand in hand, with the highest standards of service. Each villa is a real gem and the unique design by architect Germano Aghemo, combines traditional African elements and materials such as the makuti roofs, with Italian style and contemporary comfort.
The villas which are surrounded by lush, well manicured tropical gardens and delicate water features, are very spacious: nine of them are one bedroom villas measuring 235 square meters, ideal for a romantic holiday and two are two bedroom villas measuring 300 square meters, perfect for families. Each has its own private pool and garden and large peaceful patio that faces the spectacular Zanzibar sunset.
At Star of the East, the excellent all-inclusive services that characterize all Diamonds Resorts, are of the very highest calibre to ensure the satisfaction of a selective and demanding clientele: 24-hour butler service, personalized in-room check-in, a gourmet cuisine, Pilates lessons at sunset and a golf car service to the private beach, equipped with every comfort.
Room service is designed to satisfy all requests, ensuring that every client feels unique and special. Ask to have the Jacuzzi tub prepared and choose to add a precious essential oil from a selection available or indulge in one of the Mvua African Rain SPA.
The Ocean Blue Restaurant, surrounded by a pool and a breath taking view of the ocean, offers a hearty a’ la carte breakfast and one international and local cuisine in an exclusive setting.
