Went there on a Saturday morning and stayed the entire day .. Had a wonderful early morning swim in tanganika. afterwards got a really nice breakfast of cheese omelette and Africa tea on the beach.. The beach comes alive around noon .. Excellent beach kept clean all the time by staff .. Water is vv clean here .. be careful for slippery underwater rocks ... Staff is very attentive and friendly .. Our waiter didn't mind spending 30 mins just taking our group photos ...
Didn't stay the night but saw the rooms. Basic but good and clean..
Had a wonderful day ...

The reception is great. Great rooms at relatively higher than appropriate pricing. However, without similar resorts around, its not a bad place to go. If using public transport back to Bujumbura however, please make arrangements earlier.

Room tip: If you can get a room with a sea view, get one, there is nothing else around to see.

Place is gorgeous, and it was wonderful to get into the clear lake. Staff was considerate and offered that they we could request a lifeguard, but we didn't need one.

Our group had wonderful meals including one on the beach with the bonfire and music. Lots of little open cabanas allow you to have a quiet meal if you want one.

I was able to get wi-fi by the bar and the restaurant.

Rooms were quiet, and bathrooms were large.

Wonderful stay during weekend, enjoyed the friendliness and warm hospitality of the owners and of the service, an early morning swim in the lake with Congo in a shroud of mist in the distance, a delicious dinner of grilled 'mukeke' (eat with your fingers!), and a late evening on the beach, with campfire and guitar, leisurely sipping lemongrass tea. Life cannot get much better than this!

Blue Bay is a sizable lake side (beach) resort in Rumonge - Burundi. I stayed there for a night after a grueling day of fieldwork. Checked in at 8pm which is apparently late by Burundi standards. Took a while to locate the front office staff and approximately 30mins before I could be checked in (could have been so because I didn't reserve my accommodation). The room was nice, food great and very warm staff! I liked the sound of waves crush on the beach as I slept... I hope to be back there soon for a slightly longer stay, that way, I would have a better review of the resort.
