Diamonds Gemma dell Est


... is located in the Kendwa area on the northwest coast of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

It came as a great shock to all of us who knew Kendwa as a sleepy backpacker backwater, when this place landed like a spaceship back in 2006.

A huge 138 room facility, it caters mainly to the European packaged holiday market. By the standards of resorts of this type on Zanzibar it is actually of quite a high specification and rather modern in design.

Gemma dell Est is somewhere we tend to include in trips relatively rarely, mainly because our guests tend to prefer smaller and more intimate lodges.

When a resort of this type is needed, we tend to look towards Breezes Beach Club, which may not have the same quality of beach, but scores more highly on most other criteria.
