Welcome to Hotel La Gemma dell'Est resort, famous for its magnificent beach and large wharf built onto the open waters of the Indian Ocean.

Located on the idyllic Nungwi Beach, Hotel La Gemma dell’Est is perfect for a luxury holiday in Zanzibar. This hotel’s* all-inclusive service, exquisite dining, wide range of activities and exclusive care of our staff guarantee you a unique stay.

The rooms of this all-inclusive hotel in Zanzibar provide you with the best services for your total comfort: air conditioning, minibar, kettle, safe box and a balcony or terrace. But if you are aiming to relax on your holiday, we suggest you head to the pool area or the reserved section of beach with sun loungers and umbrellas.

Hotel La Gemma dell’Est offers you a wide range of dishes so that you can enjoy authentic dining experiences. The main restaurant offers buffet breakfasts, lunches and dinners with live cooking stations, and the theme restaurants (some of which have an extra cost) serve up the finest Italian, Asian and local dishes. What’s more, at the hotel bars you can try a range of snacks and aperitifs.

Entertainment is guaranteed at this hotel in Zanzibar, thanks to the many different activities we have on offer: entertainment programmes for all ages, a wellness centre and the option to play sports like tennis, kayaking, paddle boarding and beach volleyball, among many other choices. The youngest members of the family can enjoy the children’s area of the pool and also the mini club, a place for them to have fun on their holiday. In addition, in the wellness centre you can book a range of treatments to relax completely.

In Zanzibar, there are many places to explore, so we recommend booking an excursion to get to know the essence of what was once known as the Spice Island. If you need more information, don’t hesitate to check our Zanzibar tourist guide to find out about all the things you can do in this magnificent destination. Discover Zanzibar with RIU!
