The Sultan Sands Island Resort is the newest resort of the Bluebay Hotels Group, having received its first guests in July 2008.It is a uniquely constructed magical Africa resort,with a choice of 76 rooms built in single storey African style rondavels - each with two tastefully decorated rooms with a separate changing room leading into the superbly appointed en-suite bathroom. It nestles on the beachfront of a 25 acre stretch of subtly landscaped gardens decked with over 1000 palm trees.
The Sultan Sands Island Resort stands where, until 2006, the La Villa Beach Club stood - then a standard 20 roomed hotel next to the Bluebay Beach Resort & Spa. After its acquisition by the Group, it was transformed into a unique, one-of-a-kind holiday facility. It is now a resort befitting its name association with the fabled Omani Sultans who ruled the Zanzibar Islands for centuries.
