what a compliment you have given us. “To enjoy every minute of your stay" is our aim. From the moment you rise refreshed from a lovely nights sleep to the gentle hum of the ocean, through a day filled with hot showers, refreshing swimming pools, excellent food on tap throughout the day. To hours filled with brilliant equatorial sunlight and cooling sea breezes, hot cappuccinos and cold beers, diving and volleyball, tennis and tours, and of course the curious crabs on the whitest of beaches – yes we hope you enjoy every minute of your day. And well our nights – great live music, more excellent food, a very reasonably priced and excellent wine selection until you go back “home” to your stylish room and comfortable bed.
Departures are sadly a necessity – a return well that is also a must! We look forward to welcoming you and your family back for more than a weekend next time.

Amazing hotel, great and spacious rooms, very comfortable. Lovely outside balcony to enjoy a beer after a day at the beach. Service was amazing. We arrived the first night and we got a rooms that we weren't all that excited about. The next morning we went to the Front Desk and the Executive Housekeeper took immediate action which was amazing. It made us forget about the first night completely. The beach and th beds are comfortable. Food was good. Could have been a bit more extensive especially when staying 2 weeks, the menus rerun so you'll have the same menu twice which was a bit of a pity. However, definitely a recommendation to travel here and stay at BlueBay.

Room tip: Make sure to book a room w/sea view, beautiful awaking each morning as you're overlooking the ocean.

Amazing hospitality, great food and lovely atmosphere. The staff at this resort really do make an effort to make your stay comfortable. Good accommodation, lovely range of food and enjoyable entertainment. Our stay was just a couple of days but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. A couple of niggles - check in was unnecessarily long; the last thing you want after a long journey is a whole sermon df do's and don't. The other drawback is just the sheer amount of mosquitoes - not sure if the greenery was being treated. Otherwise, a fantastic stay

We came here after our safari, as most tourists do. The property was phenomenal, although the rooms were a little less luxurious as the ones we had been experiencing on the safari, though they were still very comfortable, clean and had a great layout.

The food here was the star, it was absolutely excellent. Get the full all-inclusive deal.

Thank you for having chosen our resort for your stay on Zanzibar -the Spice island after your serengeti safari experience. Your positive comments are well received and most appreciated.

Our All Inclusive drinks are not served in plastic cups and our wines come out of bottles and not plastic containers. This is what differentiates us from many others.

We are glad to note your appreciation on the friendliness, smile & the warmth of our super attentive attendant .

We are renowned for our excellent choices and quality of the freshest of food and excellent themed dinners not only in our two Main restaurants but also in any of our four a la carte choices suiting each taste and pocket, thank for appreciating our efforts

I have shared with our team who take a lot of pride whenever they exceed guest expectation.

We hope it will not be long before we get the opportunity of hosting you again and assure you of our continued commitment to provide excellent standards of service and facilities at all times.

We recently stayed at this resort on Zanzibar. The rooms were nice and access to the restaurants, the spa, and beach were within easy walking distance. The people who work here are friendly. Overall, a very nice experience. As with most resorts on Zanzibar, security exists everywhere...at the entrance to the beach. It's impossible to walk on the beach itself as someone is always approaching you trying to sell something. Security personnel did a good job of keeping these individuals off the property, though. No one seemed to mind this, however, as there were plenty of lounge chairs on the property suited for the beach as well as the swimming pools. The spa services were very nice also!
