The Oyster Bay Hotel is a luxurious home-away-from-home designed specifically for travelers looking for a sophisticated and stylish stopover as they pass through Dar es Salaam. A stay at The Oyster Bay is like staying with friends in a modern African home, where rules do not exist, service is beyond personalized, and stunning ocean views come standard.
The Oyster Bay Hotel is an effortless combination of gentle modernism and artistically infused African accents, from abstract geometric carvings to weathered Zanzibari doors. With only eight ocean facing guest suites, the Oyster Bay hotel places particular emphasis on uncluttered space, high-tech comforts, and clean, neutral colors splashed with characterful African details. Each suite boasts separate sitting and sleeping areas, large bathrooms with freestanding tubs and walk-in showers, ocean-facing mosquito netted beds, and breezy balconies with views of the coconut palms dotted along Oyster Bay beach, as well as little welcoming details like fresh flowers and a tray of fruit and homemade flapjacks.
The Oyster Bay Hotel is best defined by its light and airy spaces, which flow out of tall French doors onto covered colonial verandas looking out onto the large gardens and swimming pool. Whether relaxing in the shaded gazebo, checking email in the study, lazing in the sun-filled contemporary gardens, or doing laps in the swimming pool, the entire atmosphere is enough to make guests forget they are in a sprawling African metropolis. Depending on the weather and time of day, meals are served on the verandah, at the communal table in the dining room, or on the pool deck and are always tailored to guests’ preferences. Like a private house, all meals, drinks, and airport transfers are included with each stay and cater to every whim at any time of day, from early morning coffee and cake after a long flight, to a glass of Pimms by the pool in the afternoon, or a fresh lobster dinner cooked over open fire in the late evening. Everything is arranged according to specifications with a smile to ensure guests fully unwind at the beginning or conclusion of their Tanzania holiday.
The Oyster Bay Hotel boasts its own fleet of chauffeured vehicles, which are always prepared to transport guests to and from the airport in hassle-free style. Set on the northern beachfront of Tanzania’s commercial capital, the hotel is situated away from the cacophony of downtown yet within walking distance of the Oyster Bay shopping center and the many shops on the Peninsula.Request Information
