The Oyster Bay Hotel is simply superb.... not just the best place in Dar, but one of the nicest small boutique hotels you will find ANYWHERE. If is away from the cacophony of downtown, but close to all of the shops on the Peninsula, with lots of handy retail right next door. The courtyard is a little heaven unto itself,...

Arguably one of my favorite places to stay ever! Beautiful card and celebratory drinks to celebrate our honeymoon. Our room was fantastic with the most spectacular view to the ocean from the bed. The swimming pool was just enough and the food and ambiance were truly beautiful. Could not rate this place highly enough!

Oyster Bay Hotel lives up to its reputation in every way. Beautiful rooms, excellent service and outstanding cuisine. Location somewhat removed from "downtown" Dar is a big plus; Dar is a rather grimy city with little to see or do. Oyster Bay is located amidst the mansions of Embassy Row, right on the Ocean. No reason to be anywhere else....

This hotel is a small, all inclusive, design hotel which is stated in the residential area of Dar Es Salaam. They have only 8 rooms. The rooms are very well decorated, big and comfortable, staff is excellent, food is amazing. Next to the hotel, there is a small shopping area.

Only 8 rooms but unless you need more, look no further than Oyster Bay Hotel. Must say right away that there are only two negatives to mention: Dar is a tough city and there are no good locations but Oyster Bay is facing the Indian Ocean behind high gates so you need only be able to see 15 feet or...

I wish I could have spent longer here. I stayed for 1 night, but during this short time we were made to feel like royalty. From the time we arrived, to the time we left, there was not a moment i felt homesick. It was indeed home away from home. From the hospitality of the team, to the views from...

My wife and I spent one night here after two weeks of scuba diving on Vamizi Island and a week of safari in Ruaha National Park. Our stay at the Oyster Bay was a superb end to a perfect trip to Moçambique and Tanzania. The Oyster Bay is so great that we actually discussed to try to postpone our flight...
