Sitting at dinner at their large 'story telling' table - we called it that as the eclectic mix of the wonderful staff and guests unfolding their adventures was amazing - surrounded by beautiful artifacts, decor and excellent food - a must!

Description

Oyster Bay is located a 45-minute drive from Dar es Salaam Airport and is a haven of peace in the city, a serene spot next to the sea in which to gather your senses before or after your safari in Tanzania or en-route to the Quirimbas Archipelago in northern Mozambique.

The Oyster Bay is a beautiful large home and garden with eight ocean facing guest suites, all have luxurious bathrooms, air-conditioning and are fabulously furnished in contemporary African style. There are extensive lounges and terraces overlooking mature gardens and the swimming pool and the hotel is within secure walking distance of the Oyster Bay shopping center. The hotel has plenty of beautiful African art and photographs as well as many traditional African objects.

Offering excellent food and friendly and efficient service, Oyster Bay is highly recommended for an overnight stop in Dar es Salaam. The managers are brilliant at suggesting things to do if you are in Dar es Salaam for a little longer.

Accommodation

The Oyster Bay has eight spacious ocean facing suites with balconies situated on three floors. The suites are furnished with either king sized or twin beds and have lounge furnishing as well as writing desks and plasma screen televisions. The en-suite bathrooms are open plan and contain a free-standing bath, walk through shower and enclosed toilet facility.

Double Room

There are 8 lovely suites with large king-size beds (twin beds can be arranged). The suites have large bathrooms with bath and shower.

Childcare

Children are very welcome to stay at Oyster Bay. However, there are no specific facilities, but they are able to arrange baby sitting and child friendly menu as well as being flexible on meal times.

Facilities

The lounges and dining areas flow out on to a covered veranda from where you can enjoy the spacious and contemporary designed garden. There is a study with internet access and all areas are air-conditioned for the hotter more humid months. There is a fifteen-meter lap pool in the garden and a combination of pool decks and sun bathing and shady areas.

Delicious meals are served on the veranda, in the dining area and on the pool deck depending on time of day and weather conditions.

Location & Directions

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

The Oyster Bay is located in the center of the Oyster Bay area of Dar es Salaam facing the ocean on Tourre Drive. It is a fifteen minute drive from the center of the city.

When to go

Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.
