last night at Oyster Bay

If you want a refuge from the hectic city and a place to chill out before the long flight home, then this is definitely the place. The collection to and from the airport is very efficient and stress-free. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Maretha and a delicious cool drink. She showed us around the house, while our luggage disappeared upstairs.

Our room was number 8 on the top floor (no lift) with a view of the ocean and passing ships. The room was large and very well appointed with an enormous bathroom. We were treated to bubbly before a delicious dinner. This we ate in the company of the owner, Charlie Bailey, who happened to be in town.

Breakfast was delivered promptly to the room at 5.15am, so that we had time to enjoy it before our early morning flight back to London.

A great way to spend our last day

After 8 days in 'camp' it was wonderful to see the sea again - our day room was enormous - food delicious and our hostess very warm and welcoming.

We were escourted to the local shops to do last minute shopping and although we didn't use the pool it did look very inviting. As our flight was at 00.35 it was really good to have a restful day and be able to have a bath/shower before we left for the airport.

Oyster Bay and another meeting with Charlie

Stumbling out of the domestic terminal at Dar airport an hour late it was wonderful to be met by Chohan with an air conditioned minibus, cold towels and a cold drink. The drive through rush hour Dar was instructive and reminded us to review our life insurance!

Oyster Bay is another reflection of Charlie Bayley's talent for getting it right. Boutique it may be but it runs like clockwork, service is impeccable and Meretha a fabulous hostess. Sadly our stay was short but just about perfect as a round off to a great holiday.

Oyster Bay review

Oyster Bay is on a par with the best boutique hotels in the UK - beautiful, spacious rooms, excellent food and a great front of house team.

As a stopover before the flight back to London, there couldn't be a better place.

Oyster Bay review

As it was the sister hotel of Beho Beho we had very high recommendations which were probably unfair.

Room was lovely and the hotel had a lovely decor. Shame that building work was going on next door but that cannot be helped

Oyster Bay - Luxury back in Dar

A perfect way to end a safari.

Very luxurious room and superb food. Greeted with a splendid lunch of lobster salad; then a trip out to try and find some gifts to take home followed by a relaxing swim in the hotel pool. Then another great meal at dinner!

All the staff were most helpful and provided excellent service.

Oyster Bay review

Although the transfer to the hotel was horrendous, as we were in rush hour(s) this is an amazing oasis. We could not have asked for a more caring hostess and the food she provided was very very good. Michelin * - should be !!
