Delightful 4 night stay at this resort in April. Accommodations, setting and staff all of excellent calibre. Great snorkelling trip to Mnemba Island with One Ocean Diving. Our timing was perfect as the last night was at full moon. Dinner was on a sand bar on the beach with the ocean lapping just steps away. A truly once in a... More

We stayed here for 4 days, just after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. It's perfect for relaxing, great views, superb food and 5 star accommodation. The resort is really well set out and besides the main pool, we had one just next to our villa. Although it was the quiet (and rainy) season, the hotel was really well maintained and the management... More

We were in Blue Bay from February 21 to February 26, for our wedding anniversary . It was absolutely brilliant throughout the holiday, on the actual day we had our dinner on the beach, with the best sea food platter ever. The staff was friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much, all smiles. We will most definitely be back.

We had an amazing time at Bluebay. The staff led by Julian went out of their way and well beyond to ensure a wonderful vacation. Highlights included an over the top full moon dinner on the beach and enough pool time and kids activities to get the kids going non-stop until bed time. We enjoyed the food, our room was... More

This is a 5 star property with almost all the amenities you would expect of an all inclusive resort on the Northeast Coast of Zanzibar. Comfortable rooms, attentive staff, good food (mostly) a safe beach, Masai guards and the warm Indian Ocean. They had a reasonable range of activities but we only took advantage of snorkelling as we did the... More

We have just returned from The Blue Bay Hotel after a stay of three weeks. It was an absolute delight to stay there. Everything, from the very friendly, helpful staff down to the excellent selection of food, to the wonderfully comfortable bedrooms made this holiday stand out for us. A special mention must go to Duncan Barati, the Front Office... More

This resort has everything. Fro the golden sands of the private beach to the bright and airy rooms, from the amazing buffet at every meal to the watersports facilities (including a memorable scuba diving trip, makes this hotel special. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the whole place is clean, which may seem simple but makes a lot... More

I vacationed here with my family and the following stood out for us: a) Clean Pool. b) Great service from the rooms, restaurants and pool - both from the staff at Blue bay and Sultan Sands. c) Great buffet with very well prepared food- especially at the Sultan Sand.
