Traveller Reviews

Diamonds La Gemma Dell'Est

Brian Seed

"The Serena and Diamond resort fitted us to a tee and the resort didn’t skimp on anything!"

Catherine Carroll

La Gemma Dell'Est - what a beautiful property, it was stunning, The beach was really beautiful with warm clean water. Our suite was perfect, plenty of room for everyone and we had a pack-and-play with a mosquito net but I didn't notice any problem wi th mosquitos here too. The food was "ok" is my only complaint - repetitive and not impressive but we did enjoy the Pizza place. This was a wonderful relaxing break after the safari - laying around the pool and enjoying the ocean was heaven.

The resort was great. Food exceptionally nice. We had never done an all inclusive, but it was great. We also were put in a big "villa", had 4 bedrooms and a big open area we could all meet. Private and a great way to stay with friends. We would g o back again. Mike got to renew his diving and did 3 dives, I got to snorkel and it was BEAUTIFUL water everyday.

"Regarding, Zanzibar - La Gemma del Est - the facilities, the staff, the quality of the service, the people were excellent. What we feel about it could be summarized in one phrase "we are in love with the Indian ocean""

Ragnar Jonell

Gemma Dell Est at Zanzibar was really a beautiful place. I felt like we were living in a tropical garden with the best view over the turquise ocean. The service and food was very, very good. Since it was low season there were very few guests so even if it is a big place we hardly saw any other people.

The hotel itself was spectacular, and the food, drinks, beach, rooms. It was all just perfect. I was so worried about getting an all inclusive deal, but it really was just ideal. I cant wait to go back, and have already sent your details and recommen ded it to a bunch of people.
