The Oyster Bay Hotel

Unrivalled luxury at Royal Madikwe Safari Lodge

Find out why the Oyster Bay Hotel is the top hotel in Dar es Salaam in the information below then book your bed for a unique stay in this example of sheer boutique bliss. It’s intimate and it’s funky and the Oyster Bay Hotel only caters for a few select guests and one of them could be you!  

Every consideration has been made to ensure that guests, however, short their stay, enjoy a relaxing time at the Oyster Bay Hotel in the Oyster Bay district of Dar es Salaam. Delightful accommodation for 16 guests includes gracious interiors, all meals and plenty to do. Overlooking the beach, this hotel offers a few nights of relaxation before heading back to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Many guests experience a joyous return to one of their favourite hotels when they return to the Oyster Bay. This is so much more than a boutique hotel but rather a warm and welcoming place for every guest from around the globe. Feel the sense of understated elegance in the wood, leather, local fabrics and stone materials in natural colours.  

Elegant lounges and dining areas on the terrace and within the main building look out over the narrow swimming pool with its relaxing lounge chairs and shade. Guests stay in only 6 rooms up the stairs, with plenty of space and elegantly decorated with four poster beds, seating areas, large showers, baths and free Wi-Fi. 

What’s more, the food is stunning. Lunch and dinner do not have a fixed menu but instead, guests chat to the chef who then agrees on what to concoct for the select guests. Just remember the hearty breakfast is very filling so the lunch can be light before the exquisite dinner approaches too! Imagine salad and samosas for lunch and local lobster, prawns and calamari for dinner? 

Escape the chaos of Dar with a few tranquil nights at the Oyster Bay Hotel to soothe away all your stresses. Everything about the hotel is breathtaking and extremely relaxing. The place is a gem and the best base for your explorations into the heart of Tanzania including the Serengeti, Lake Manyara and Zanzibar too. 



The Oyster Bay Hotel is set in the Oyster Bay district of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, a mere 20-minute drive outside of the metropolis, on the Msasani Peninsular. Picture exquisite sea views and tranquillity away from the chaos and crowds of a busy city. 

Every consideration has been made to ensure that guests, however short their stay, enjoy a relaxing time that will forever stay embedded in their minds. The Oyster Bay Hotel is the perfect stopover for visitors en route to the Tanzania safari circuits, Mount Kilimanjaro or the islands. 

The 8 sea-facing suites provide refreshing Dar es Salaam accommodation to 16 guests. Interiors combine modern and antique furnishings with an African flair. All the rooms are incredibly spacious and airy with either king-sized or two twin beds. French doors opening onto an ocean-facing balcony and a large en-suite bathroom with a free-standing bath and a stylish, walk-through shower are some of the features to expect in each suite. 

The public areas of Oyster Bay Hotel include spacious lounges and terraces overlooking beautiful, sculpted gardens. The hotel also boasts a gazebo, dining area and swimming pool and deck. 

Meals are served regularly during the day and you can expect to feast on a range of local and international dishes, prepared according to your preferences and tastes. Guests have the option to eat in the dining room, on the terrace or on the pool deck, if the weather permits. 

The Oyster Bay Hotel is situated overlooking the beach, offering even more places to enjoy a break after your Tanzania safari and a few nights of relaxation before heading back to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
