Other activities

As with many properties of this type there is a strong focus on beach life and you are encouraged to spend the majority of your time relaxing and soaking in the sun. Should you choose to leave the resort transportation can easily be arranged although journey times to Stone Town are long. Other likely excursions are Spice Tours and trips to swim with Dolphins and Turtles. All of these can be arranged via the hotel on demand or pre booked in advance.

Hiring a 4x4 jeep is a popular option, not least as the roads in this area are quiet and the hotel offers free parking facilities.

Our opinion

This is a large resort which does lose the personal touches common in the smaller boutique guest houses but on balance has a lot of facilities for families and business clients alike. Honeymoon couples looking for a romantic and more exclusive experience would perhaps be better provided for in a smaller, more boutique style lodge or hotel.
However La Gemma dell Est is well suited to those who prefer to arrive and relax with have everything available on site.
The all inclusive price plan means you don’t have to worry about running up a bar bill which is why the resort is a popular package holiday destination.
