Star of the east is situated in Kendwa along the northwest coast of Zanzibar.

This small complex is part of Gemma dell'Est. Unlike the latter it caters for travellers who are looking at the same time for a high level of servicing, a great privacy and the opportunity to enjoy a range of services that only large facilities can offer.

The hotel consists of 11 beautiful villas with pool set back from the beach and from Gemma dell’Est rooms in a quite and peaceful environment. Guests will not feel the presence of the multitude of people staying at Gemma dell'Est unless when using some common facilities such as the gym, the watersports centre and the SPA.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are normally served in villa [which is serviced by a butler] or at the Ocean Blue restaurant [the main Star of the East restaurant] however guests willing to enjoy a different surrounding can access all food and beverages outlets down at Gemma dell'Est.

Star of the East has been given out a private portion of beach. It has been artificially built and access to the sea occurs through wooden stairs, note that at high tide stairs will lead straight into the water. Given the distance between the villas and the beach one can move with golf car.

Diving, snorkeling, gym and water-gym can be arranged with the sports centre at Gemma dell'Est. Deep sea fishing is arranged with Zanzibar Watersports, the water sports centre at Ras Nungwi. Othe activities include windsurfing, canoe, catamaran and laser boat.

The search for great privacy close to a large hotel complex may seem unusual, if you want an intimate and romantic place in a relatively remote setting along the northwest coast then you might consider staying Kilindi.
