Oyster Bay review
Our last two visits have been very memorable when hosted by Maretha. So our expectatations were high for our third visit but on arrival we were asked if we had been before!
The service wasnot as slick as it should have been, considering we were the only guests. We did not feel comfortable
Oyster Bay in Dar es Salaam is a small boutique hotel done in white with African woods and unusual art work. It is clean and
plush with many open areas onto the lovely gardens and Lap pool in the back.
The food was superb and served perfectly with delicious african wines. The staff and manager, Maretha, were fantastic. We could not wish for better care. All the rooms have a lovely view onto Oyster Bay. We took two breaks here during our Safari and it was very relaxing. It is the place to stay in Dar es Salaam.
We will definitely return again.
Maretha & her small team couldn't do enough, it's a place of beauty & tranquility in Dar'.
We had 2 nights at the end of our fantastic holiday & this was the perfect place on the Peninsula to relax & unwind including the sundowner at the waterfront following an opportunity to purchase any memories / presses prior to our return.
Oyster Bay review
The hotel is beautifully decorated and comfortable. We loved the view from our room and I enjoyed the lap pool.
The food was delicious and ample. We will certainly recommend this as a place to stay in Dar.
The transfer to and from the airport was well organised.
Stylish Oyster Bay
Unfortunately only had a quick 1 night stopover here before flight home but was most impressed. Great attention to detail and extremely friendly atmosphere. Made the last night in Tanzania very special!Read more about the whole trip
Relaxing in Oyster Bay
We started our trip in Oyster Bay and made the mistake not to come back at the end to relax. Dimitre pamperd us!
We met very interesting people at the dinnertable.
A very special place.
A wonderful end to our holiday
Oyster Bay is a great place to relax before boarding the plane back home and again this was our second visit. The rooms are beautifully decorated and food wonderful - we were the only guests and were able to chose just what we wanted.
Demitra, Khadija and Basil made us so welcome. Beho Beho and Oyster Bay have now spoilt us forever - they will be our yardstick for friendly staff, delicious food, great locations and fabulous rooms!

R & R at Oyster Bay before the flight home.
Apart from a booklet of Rules for the Swimming Pool in the bedroom, and a sign by the communal downstairs cloakroom, there is absolutely no indication anywhere that this is an hotel. It has all the feel of a beautifully appointed private house to which one has been invited to spend a day or two. Other guests come and go - most seem to stay for quite a short time - and meals are taken together, often with the owner as host.
The service is outstanding - from the iced water and cold flannels produced by the driver at the airport, to Marita (?) who met us at the door, to the delightful and ever-smiling waiters. The food was plentiful and utterly delicious. Decor throughout was perfect: restful, interesting and entirely in keeping with the place.
