Fodor's Expert Review The Oyster Bay

Toure Dr., Dar es Salaam, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania Fodor's Choice

This stylish, contemporary boutique hotel has been created as a tranquil haven for guests to recuperate in before or after a flight or safari, and it certainly more than fits the bill. There are no fixed meal times or menus; instead guests are encouraged to feel like they are staying in a private home—albeit one where every wish is catered to with an easy smile. Most guests opt to eat communally with other guests and the sincerely warm and friendly hosts, but there's the option to dine alone too. There's a number of shopping centers nearby to explore, or guests can relax at the hotel's pool or verandah. Day rates are available, along with airport transfers; a stay here should be booked through your tour operator. Children are also welcome.
