“BlueBay Bliss!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

This hotel/resort is wonderful! Great food, staff is friendly, very helpful and efficient, rooms are spacious and clean! Drinking cocktails, overlooking the aquamarine water is a bliss! Staff of the Diving and Snorkeling company on the BlueBay Resort Property are efficient and friendly and this experience was magnificent! The amount of different fish species one see are staggering and beyond your wildest imagination!

Beautiful Beach Resort and Spa, very quite and clean. Staff and Management is awesome. We spend 3 nights at the Resort and our experience was wonderful. i had a spa treatment which was amazing and relaxing.. Amina the spa therapist was excellent. Our goal was to relax and not to do any stressful activity, and we accomplished that.

We went for a wedding in June and although it was winter in a South Africa. There was pleasantly warm weather in Zanzibar. Bluebay Beach Resort was really worth the stay and would recommend it to anyone. The staff are very helpful and go out of way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The resort is ideally situated and the beach shoreline is stunning. Lots of activities and many restaurant options so you don't have the same thing everyday. The good is also devine

Great relaxing holiday. Great friendly staff especially Aziza in the restaurant. Highly recommend the SPA for a chill out hour or two. Nothing much more to sit overlooking the blue sea drinking cocktails most of the day..

The Hotel is next to Sultan Sands which is also under the same ownership and one could take meals at each property.

Room Tip: Get a sea facing room or junior suite.

Amazingly peaceful , views to die for, blue blue warm sea - idyllic.
The staff are extremely friendly and great you like family - I took my elderly mother, they were charmingly kind - nothing too much for them to do for her

Room Tip: Go for a garden room/suite and the sultan suite if you can - amazingly quiet with glorious sun rises...
