Blue Oyster Hotel

Karibu sana – Welcome to the Blue Oyster Hotel

The Blue Oyster is a small and cosy family-run hotel, directly adjacent to the beautiful white sandy beaches of Zanzibar. We are situated in Jambiani, a small traditional fishing village on the South East Coast of the island. As a responsible tourism certified hotel, we place a strong emphasis on working together with our local community while focusing on preserving natural resources.

Our Story

The German owner, Klaus Beiser, opened the hotel on December 26th, 1999. Ever since this day, we have been constantly improving our hotel to offer the best services and comfort possible.
Now managed by the second generation of family Beiser along with a team of highly motivated employees consisting of locals from the surrounding village of Jambiani and Tanzania.
Blue Oyster Hotel aims at providing an unforgettable holiday experience. We are currently offering 18 rooms, either classic sea view rooms with stunning views of the Indian Ocean or budget-option garden view rooms.




Our Philosophy

The Blue Oyster Hotel is a small family-run hotel with a personal atmosphere. Our team will make your stay feel like a home away from home. Sustainability is a high priority in our daily business and operations. We do not offer facilities such as a pool or air conditioning, as we are trying to reduce the environmental, social and economic impact that is caused by tourism. With this concept in mind, we are happy to welcome many guests each year.
