General information

This is a small German owned hotel in the village of Jambiani. It does not offer the resort experience (i.e. no swimming pool/spa), but, for a fraction of resort prices, gives guests the chance to stay on a beautiful and unspoilt stretch of Zanzibar’s eastern coastline. The hotel offers bed and breakfast packages, though its restaurant is also open for dinner.

Detailed information


Just 50 km away from Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar, lies the Blue Oyster Hotel close to the village of Jambiani on the east coast.

Restaurants and bars

The hotel restaurant serves breakfast daily, and dinner can be booked in advance. Food is good, locally sourced and fresh. The evening menu is predominantly fresh local fish so those not keen on seafood might have to consider other options for dinner. This should not be a problem as there are many local resorts and beach restaurants in the area. The food that is on offer is good quality and generally very well prepared as well as being good value for money.

Sport and leisure

During their stay, guests can book a massage or relax at the beach or in a hammock in the garden. The hotel has Ngalawa boat to catch fish. They can also rent equipment for snorkeling. It features a small library with literature from around the world and shop with local souvenirs.

Additional information

Staff at the hotel are very friendly and knowledgeable. They are on hand to help guests to book excursions and tours and to offer advice for those travelling on to other parts of the island. The hotel is kept very clean and rooms and beds are treated for mosquitoes daily (you may have to hand your key in at reception to ensure this happens). Though the dinner service can prove a little slow this is common on Zanzibar, where staff tend to take a more relaxed approach at meal times.
