Rooms & Suites
La Gemma dell’Est offers 138 rooms and suites, all with private terraces with views of the Indian Ocean. Decor is consistent throughout rooms, with red-tile floors, dark-wood furniture accented with faux-animal-print throw cushions, and the occasional piece of African wall art to add some color to the predominantly earth-toned spaces. There are ceiling fans as well as air-conditioning to keep things cool, and each room has a daily-replenished minibar and coffee/tea facilities. Safes and flat-screen TVs are also provided, but the free Wi-Fi is spotty.
There are 23 Villa Club Rooms, which offer private rooms and shared living rooms intended to encourage guest mingling. The 93 Deluxe Rooms lack the living rooms but have direct garden access. There are also 17 Suites that have separate living rooms and kitchens with two-burner stovetops. The Presidential Suite has five bedrooms, an office, a private pool, and butler service.
