  • Makuti Restaurant at Bluebay Beach Resort enjoys views across the swimming pool and beyond to the sea, and serves themed menus ranging from Swahili and Zanzibari to Italian and Seafood barbeques. Elsewhere, you’ll find the Bahari Grill, a beachfront seafood spot, and Palms Pool Bar for icy-cool cocktails underneath swaying palms.

  • Oasis Spa is a retreat tucked away among the greenery, under a thatched roof with palm trees growing right up through it. At the edge of the beach, it offers a range of natural treatments to soothe all your stresses, with the sea breeze and sounds of the ocean all around you.

  • If lying on the beach is a little too laid back for you, the hotel is home to One Ocean, a five-star Padi dive centre, giving you access to the surrounding reefs and a variety of marine life from turtles to dragon moray eels. Boat trips, windsurfing, and other beach sports are also available at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner.

  • Situated in a bungalow just 30 metres from the beach, Junior suites are extremely spacious and come with their own lounge areas, huge furnished verandahs, private gardens with outdoor showers, bathtubs and beautiful, canopied four poster beds in-keeping with traditional style.

Bluebay Beach Resort is located in Kiwengwa, on Zanzibar’s east coast. Primarily a beach destination, you’re spoilt for choice here with soft white sands for miles if you want to explore a little further afield than the hotel’s beach. Get out on the water by kayak or sailing boat, take a boat trip with local guides or body board in the surf. Back on land, you can arrange to take a spice tour, explore the local caves or go adventuring in Kiwengwa Pongwe Forest. The capital, Stone Town, is well worth exploring too - an incredible synthesis of architecture and culture thanks to the voyagers who have used this beautiful island as a hub of trade for hundreds of years.
