We recently returned from a 10 nights stay at La Gemma dell' Est after a 6 day safari in Tanzania. What a wonderful relaxing place. One of the reasons we had picked this hotel was that we had previously stayed at a sister hotel in the Maldives. Once again we were not left disappointed. What a lovely hotel, staff, grounds...

Very much enjoyed my stay here with the all inclusive package. The beach is, in my opinion one of the best in Zanzibar, and is accessible at all tide levels (which is unique compared with other resorts on the island).
