Blue Bay Beach Resort, located on the north eastern coast of Zanzibar, is not going to disappoint. Here you will find high class trimmings combined with an ultimate beach experience. The hotel is right on the beach, which is totally unspoilt with very few people on it. Long stretches of white sand with crystal clear sea in shades of blue... More

The Hotel is so beautiful by itself, it has it's own character,that flows with the environment. The service couldn't have been better!! Delicious meals! Fresh fruit in the morning, pastries, and a variety of choices for breakfasts. Various buffet style dinners I really loved it!

The beach-front is only about 100 meters away. But the good times are everywhere within this establishment. You will not go wrong, be it about the food or the service, or the dazzling white clean beach. Located at about 1.5 hour drive from the airport and Zanzibar town. So plan accordingly should you need cash, as the ATMs are located... More

Spent a week at Blue Bay including my birthday. I really did not want to leave. I left with a very heavy heart. We really tried to find fault but apart from a couple of staff members in the restaurant it was excellent! On the day of my birthday I had a wonderful massage and then a cake was organised... More

we only went there for dinner the one night. we were told the food was excellent so i guess we had our hopes up. it was a buffet night of Italian food and to be honest in Zanzibar with the amount of Italians visiting the island you would have expected more from such a well known hotel. the pastas were...

I checked out after my holiday with such a heavy heart. I spent 5 nights with my husband and it already felt like home. The staff is the best i ever experienced in the hospitality industry, everyone from the taxi drivers, to the bellboys, the waiters, the front office staff, i mean every staff at the resort is friendly and...
