The Bluebay Beach Resort is on a beautiful 30-acre site with its bedroom cottages located on rising ground overlooking verdant gardens, the public areas, the pool, the more than 1,000 beautiful palm trees, the sparkling white beach and the azure seas beyond.

The Resort has a choice of three room types and two types of suite. The Garden Rooms sit amongst pretty landscaped gardens. They are all at least 45m ² with two large 4 poster beds with mosquito nets, separate dressing room and en-suite bathroom. All rooms have a balcony or veranda, air conditioning, ceiling fan, mini bar, safe, hair dryer, satellite TV and telephone. The Superior Rooms are similar to the Garden rooms, but each is at least 50m² and all have views over the ocean. ‘Club 24’ Rooms have the same facilities but are located in a more private area of the gardens, where the 24 rooms have special access to their own restaurant, bar, lounge and free flow pool with Jacuzzi.

There are 8 Junior Suites all located in a private wind, just 30metres from the beach. All have a sea view and are spacious (90m²) and comfortable. There is a lounge area incorporated in the room, an extensive external veranda and a private external garden shower. The Junior Suites have the same amenities as the rooms but have one large four poster bed rather than 2 beds.

The 2 Sultan Suites are right on the beach and are very luxurious. They each come with their won attendant butler, dressed in flowing traditional Swahili robes, who is there to meet your every need and make sure that your stay is perfect. These suites have spacious verandas, furnished in true Zanzibar style, provide the ideal location to relax and watch the world drift lazily by. The rooms are very spacious and have 8 feet 'Sultan size' beds so you can imagine what it must have been like to be a real Sultan.

There is a choice of dining at the Bluebay Beach Resort. The Makuti Restaurant offers smart fine dining and evening entertainment and has great views of the swimming pool to the Indian Ocean beyond. Beach wear is not allowed in this restaurant. The Bahari Grill is another smart option open only in the evenings. It has excellent seafood dishes as well as delicious steaks. The more relaxed Beach Bar and Restaurant is a fabulous place to sip cold drinks or have a pizza, seafood specialties or other light meal - all served in an informal toes-in-the-sand setting with the ocean right in front! The pool bar serves refreshing drinks all day.

There is always plenty to do at Bluebay Beach Resort. In addition to the swimming pool there are many water sports available including water skiing, scuba diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, kayaks, sail and pedal boats as well as hobie cats and body boards. You can hire bikes to ride along the beach and there is a tennis court, table tennis, snooker and billiards. You can also go big game fishing and the hotel is happy to organise excursions and spice tours. If you’re thinking of nothing but relaxation try the Oasis spa.
