I recently visited this hotel. It's about 2.15 hours driving distance from Bujumbura Burundi. The rooms are clean with traditional look facing the Lake Tanganyika with a great view and you can have the scene of hills on the other side of the lake- the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Mesmerizing sounds of the lake waves take you to the serenity. Hygenic food and hospital people. Had the road traveling to the place been upgraded, that would add beauty to the place. Highly recommended !!!
If you want to get out of Bujumbura and experience Lake Tanganyika, this is a good choice. it is about an hour drive from the city on reasonably good roads. Their food is good, particularly their fresh fish from the lake. The rooms are fine. The hotel doesn't get that much traffic due to limited tourism in the country, so you will have plenty of alone time on a great beach.
i never thought anything this beautifull could be in burundi since all we ever see is the wars. but this place God this place is just but spectacular. The brown sandy beach is extensive and the way the hotel is poisantly hidden among the trees makes it more spectacular. the breeze is awesome too from the lake and one can either take a stroll along the beach or a boat ride to the lake, the water is very clear. the food was okay though, but compared to my low expectations i was wowed totally.
From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty..the rooms are beautiful, the lake Water is very clean we swam all day...all our requests were handled promptly.. I highly recommend that anyone who wants to have a nice, serene holiday visit this place... thanks again to all the staff of Tanganyika blue bay for making our stay memorable... we will surely be back☺️☺️
Given Burundi's recent history it is nice to know that such resorts exist on Lake Tanganyika. In its prime, Blue Bay was a likely the best resort on the lake. The road to Rumonge has deteriorated. After the rough drive from Bujumbura the relaxing atmosphere of Blue Bay is a welcome respite. The staff is accommodating, the beer is cold, and the food is satisfactory. A nice place to relax.
