The Bluebay Beach Resort
Bluebay Beach Resort is situated on the finest wide, white sandy beach on the East Coast of Zanzibar Island in an area known as Kiwengwa.. The reception area is white, airy and spacious with Arabic arches and a fountain set in a palm-fronded atrium. The service is outstandingly polished and, in true Swahili character, warm and friendly.
Bluebay Beach Resort offers 88 sea-facing rooms, including 80 superior rooms, six deluxe rooms and two Sultan suites. The makuti- palm thatched bungalows are set on a slope some distance from the beach and main lodge area. They're well appointed and blend in with the tropical environment. Some have chinks of a sea view through the lush palm trees.
All rooms are tastefully decorated using reproductions of Zanzibari furniture and a cool, white-and-blue colour scheme reflecting the dazzling sand and azure ocean.
There are four-poster, three-quarter beds, with mosquito nets, a writing bureau, coffee table and easy chairs, dressing room, en-suite bathroom and either a veranda or balcony. Each room is well appointed with an air conditioner, ceiling fan, satellite television, mini-bar, hairdryer and telephone.
Standard rooms are found in two-storey blocks (housing four rooms each) furthest away from the beach in the lush, tropical gardens. The deluxe rooms are slightly closer to the beach and have a larger lounge and veranda area on ground level.
