The Oyster Bay is like staying with friends, a beautiful large home and garden with eight luxurious ocean facing guest suites, spacious in the extreme (70 sqm) with luxurious bathrooms, air-conditioned, fabulously furnished in contemporary African style, the suites reflect modern day Africa in a timeless setting – balmy, equatorial, coastal, Dar es Salaam. You will feel that you are staying somewhere special and that your ‘enforced’ stay in Dar es Salaam becomes yet another highlight of your holiday. Extensive lounges and terraces overlooking mature gardens, swimming pool and within secure walking distance of the Oyster Bay shopping centre.
It does not matter what time you arrive and how long you stay, there will always be something appropriate whether it is breakfast, morning coffee and cakes, pre lunch cocktails, lunch, afternoon tea, cocktails or dinner and a night cap. Like a private house, if there is something you like whether it is a Pimms by the pool or a cup of cocoa by your bedside it can be arranged with a smile.
For those arriving on late flights, don’t worry you will not arrive to find all the lights out and the kitchen closed – fancy some cold lobster and a glass of fizz before bed? – now that sounds like The Oyster Bay and for those having to get up for an early check in at the airport – well don’t worry – we do the worrying for you, your driver will be waiting and we will make sure you have what you feel like first thikng in the morning.
As with everything else at The Oyster Bay, even the garden has been professionally landscaped. What was once a ‘jungle’ of bamboo, ponds, fountains and cascades with the odd eccentric sculpture, the gardens have been transformed, by Jo Mayers our landscaper, into a clean and crisp green and white ‘statement’ of contemporary garden design to complement our chic interiors.
They know that you will not be staying long on your business travels so have designed each suite for maximum impact with a contemporary African design scheme that will linger in your mind long after you have left. The accents are on space, comfort, clean lines, cool and natural colours with a vibrant ‘splash’ here and there to remind you that you are indeed in Africa. King sized or twin beds face the ocean view, comfortable lounge furniture, writing desks, plasma screen televisions and WiFi computer technology, in fact everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
