Bluebay Beach Resort is set in 25 acres of lovely gardens, with over 1000 palm trees, next to the beautiful Kiwengwa beach. Kiwengwa is a traditional Zanzibari fishing village and, although there are several large Italian resorts in this area, these tourists are seldom seen outside of their all-inclusive enclaves.
The 88 air-conditioned rooms are grouped in two-storey thatched bungalows. All the rooms are equipped with traditional four-poster beds, as well as modern conveniences like satellite TV and mini-bars. Each has a balcony or verandah with sea view. There are some interconnecting rooms for families. Six deluxe rooms have a sunken bath, outside double shower and a lounge area. Two rooms are equipped with a ramp and shower shelf for guests with disabilities.
There is a large free-form pool with separate open air jacuzzi, a children’s pool and playground, a floodlit tennis court, a fitness centre, a well-equipped spa and two restaurants.
There is an on-site PADI dive centre for diving and snorkelling. Canoeing, catamaran sailing and waterskiing are available.
Bluebay recycles its water for use in the gardens, collects rainwater, and uses energy-efficient fittings. Its gardens are planted with only indigenous species. Bluebay’s efforts towards sustainable tourism have been recognized by its Green Globe 21 certification.
