Situated on the east coast of Zanzibar, Blue Bay Beach Resort is a spacious and luxurious retreat set in over 30 acres of tropical gardens and sparkling white sandy beaches. The resort has long reflected the historical charm and style of its famous island home with its eclectic African style and a rich Indian Ocean heritage that is obvious throughout the resort.

A range of activities are offered at Blue Bay Beach Resort - the most popular include snorkelling, deep-sea fishing and diving in the spectacular waters of the Indian Ocean. The resort also features a fitness centre, spa and tennis court. Those who would rather sip cocktails and catch the sun can do so by the pool or on the resort's beaches. Otherwise, set off and explore the tropical island of Zanzibar on a tour of a spice plantation or the intriguing capital, Stone Town.

Traveller Reviews

  • We had lots of time to chill on the beach and return well rested and relaxed!! Recommend the deluxe rooms for other honeymooners going to the resort that wanted a bit of privacy and a special stay. Overall the service was excellent in BlueBay and the food was great.
