Going to Zanzibar and not staying at Blue Bay would not have been the same experience! It was the best stay I have ever had. When we arrive at the Hotel, they welcome us to paradise. You have to experience this hotel to truly understand why ... Even so, I will try to describe what you will find. The Hotel is beautiful. Located at the best coast in Zanzibar. The beach is breathtaking. I have to emphasize the commitment and affection of all the hotel staff, their only purpose is to provide the best for their guests. I loved meeting them all. The gastronomic experience that Blue Bay provides is amazing. I staid at the hotel during the COVID19 pandemic, due to the low occupancy during these periods sometimes buffet was not available but a varied menu was available with two options of soups, main courses and deserts to choose from. I was delighted with the food, and that doesn't happen often to me when I travel. In addition to the swimming pool, gym and tennis court, the Hotel provides kayaks, stand up paddle, windsurf and kitesurf boards free of charge. You will also find a ping-pong and pool tables, and a mini multi-language library. As in the vast majority of the beaches on the island you need to take into account the tides (available for consultation on the internet and at the hotel) both for swimming and for water sports. Depending on the tides variation, it may not be possible to swim or practice water sports. Given the quality and variety of complementary services offered by the hotel, this will not be a problem. However, I strongly recommend planning your day taking into account the tides, both at the hotel and outside (tours, etc). Only in the north of the island (Kendwa and Nungwi) can we go swimming all day, but note that they are very tourist areas, which despite being very beautiful and worth visiting have not won our preference for accomodation. There is a diving club at the hotel which is managed separately. Mmemba atoll is just 15 km from the hotel. The rooms are spacious, have a super comfortable bed with a mosquito net and air-conditioning. As the all other areas at the hotel they are very clean. The superior rooms have a fantastic view over the beach. Every night the friendly staff spray anti-mosquito, which combined with the mosquito net keeps mosquitos away. A safe is available on your room at no extra-cost. It should be used as a preventive measure, we considered the hotel very safe. The island is safe too. This hotel works great for both families and couples on half-board and all-inclusive options. The hotel is nicely located with good access to other interesting places in the island. The internet is available throughout the hotel, it is free and of excellent quality. I Highly, highly recommend this hotel.
The hotel was so welcoming & felt homely. I really enjoyed my stay & more importantly the safety measure which were taken by the management for spreading of covid 19 were very impressive. My Special Thanks goes to the wonderful & charming Managers Mr Daas & Mr Jonathan for taking such a good care of me & also to Spa Manager.. The hotel Spa was extra ordinary. & staff was very friendly & helpful. Overall I really enjoyed my stay. Asante Sana
Peaceful and Lovely Blue sea
The hotel was very welcoming, right from when we arrived. We had taken the half board option, and enjoyed all the meals served to us. No buffet, due to low season, but they catered to our likes and dislikes. Special mention to Mr Das, and his entire staff. Always warmly greeted us, and solved any issue immediately. They do serve tea and coffee between 4-5pm with cake and biscuits. All in the package included. The swimming pool was a nice size, and very inviting. The sea was just beautiful. There were several interesting communal places to sit and enjoy the hotel premises, as we were a large group. All in all, we had a very enjoyable experience.
We just stayed at Bluebay for two nights (we all wished it could've been longer) and had the most incredible time. The grounds are extensive and beautiful, the beach is sublime and the rooms are luxurious, all without losing that special Zanzibari essence. We ate from a set menu and all the food was delicious. The thing I loved the most was the service we received. The management and staff worked hard to make our stay seemless and were always there with a smile for when we needed something. Thank you Bluebay!

This is my first review, and will update at the end of my stay, We are here for 3 weeks. For the first time in my life I am lost for words on what to say about this place. Other than absolutely excellent. We arrived yesterday and was meet on arrival with most beautiful arrival. Checking in was seemless, despite the current covid19 situation all the staff observe the rules. The superior room we were allocated is probably the best room I have ever stayed in. Its so comfortable, very clean, roomy with a lovely terrace over looking the Indian ocean and well maintained gardens. Food: We have had dinner and breakfast so far, and let me tell you. The food is of excellent quality and choice for all inclusive. The service is very professional. Staff: All the staff including the gardener are of the highest quality and professionalism, they are always happy with a great smile and they go out of there way to assist you. The manager runs this place so we'll. I am so glad we have chosen this hotel, the place is so relaxing and in a great location. I am so looking forward of giving this hotel a great review when I leave, Lord Joseph Mills.
