Room Descriptions & Facilities

Over the years the owners of Bluebay have been more than attentive to the necessary refurbishments a hotel with such proven longevity requires. For this reason, in 2008 the whole hotel closed its doors for a month to allow for new makuti roofs to be installed as well as the servicing and replacements of all electrical equipment and appliances. All soft furnishings were replaced to keep up with the times (less 80’s) and more influence from Zanzibari culture was injected into the décor of this fine hotel. Everything from the curtains and cushions to the bedspreads were exchanged and guests will see that now every villa and chalet is even more attractive with a private terrace and en-suite bathroom.

All rooms have intricately decorated hardwood furniture sourced from indigenous trees and rich native fabrics. The four poster beds are all made by Zanzibari hands and your risk of getting bitten by mosquitos or the native bugs is considerably less with their strong fibred mosquito nets.

In case of power cuts there is a solar back-up system. The lodge prefers to only use their back-up generator when absolutely necessary.

Community & Conservation

Being environmentally-friendly some of the measures taken include:

  • All rooms are fitted with modern energy saving devices
  • We have installed a waste recycling plant
  • The landscaping has been done using indigenous trees and plants to attract the varied birds of the island
  • All solid roof areas are designed to allow the collection of rain water that is treated and used to supplement other water supplies

Bluebay Beach Resort & Spa - Opinions and Reviews

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our team below:


Bluebay Beach Resort is one of the larger offerings on the island aimed at families as well as couple looking for a traditional resort setting with all the facilities on site. As one of the older properties on Zanzibar it has the benefit of a stunning location on one of the better beaches on the island.

Unlike many larger properties, Bluebay is fairly flexible and has several board options meaning you can select what you pay for and what you don’t. Bluebay also attracts a more international crowd than a lot of the larger properties (many of whom serve the Italian package holiday market) and has a surprisingly good kitchen serving variety, even over a longer stay.
