We spend a week there for our honeymoon in November. There are really no words to describe just how magnificent every aspect of Diamond La Gemma is. The amazing friendly staff that makes you feel like royalty, spoiling us with smiles on their faces....The wide variety of delicious meals, desserts and cocktails...Pure white sand beaches with clear blue water.

just spent a week there, what a lovely place! For starters one of the best beaches on the island is right at the front of the hotel, the food was consistently great throughout the week, grounds are beautiful, and service was perfectly acceptable (although not true 5*, but they try). One thing worth mentioning about this place is the Cafe... More

The Butlers are great and they will go above and beyond to.make sure your stay is memorable. Whatever information they get on your preferences they will... More

Stayed here for 6 nights in October 2014 following a 6 night safari in Tanzania. We had a deluxe room which was fantastic. Spotlessly clean and housekeeping were second to none. Fridge in room and clean towels daily. Everyone was very helpful, friendly and keen to ensure your stay was a pleasurable one. Having never stayed all inclusive before we... More

We loved Zanzibar, maybe because we loved La Gemma! Beautiful location, excellent service, staff very nice and always mindful of our requests. Animation staff very nice, especially with children: for us a necessary condition to enjoy our holiday!

It took me a year to write a review on this hotel. Not because the hotel is not good, but because I was so disappointed about Zanzibar. But not to take anything away from this great hotel. In my opinion the best hotel on the Island. It really has an island feeling and the beach in fron t of the... More

We visited two resorts in Zanzibar but Gemma was by far the best. It's a very beautiful resort carefully masked by gardens to blend into the environment The service from the resturants to the room staff was impeccable. The food was varied and invariably very good. Some very good snorkelling and diving to be had with knowledgable staff and the... More

Sadly back to earth after the best holiday ever. I have lived in and visited many places in the world but never had such a wonderful experience. From the first day of our arrival to the sad end, the service we received was fantastic. Beautiful location, beautiful people nothing was too much trouble. The Christmas and New Year experience was... More

We were super excited when we booked this all inclusive package deal to stay at La Gemma. We have read most reviews and yet we didn't believe that according to the pictures this place can let us down, but eventually it did, sadly. On arrival at 21h30 during December 2014, after a one hour drive from the airport, we were... More
