Being in harmony with the environment has always been a priority at Bluebay. Keeping to our ethic, we have created the most fantastic Spa in East Africa, being hailed ‘OASIS’. By using primarily natural material the Spa has a relaxed tropical island feel. The wooden deck, with the thatch roof woven around the still-growing palm trees (hence going right through the roof), the splashing water and the abundance of beautiful exotic plants makes the Spa the ultimate place to completely rejuvenate your body and elevate your mind.

A lifting sense of wellbeing engulfs one as one is guided, by our professionals, through our different treatment rooms. We have true specialists at adapting to individual requirements. Treatments are in airy sea view rooms, over looking the beach and the turquoise ocean beyond.

As with everything at the Spa, the skin care products have been selected for their pure and natural ingredients. For a really memorable experience our therapists are happy to blend and mix the local spices and fruits right in front of the Client. All these natural freshly prepared treatments are famous for their virtues for the body and aromas to relax the mind.

During our guests days of leisure, we encourage our gusts to stimulate their taste buds as well, by trying out the health food options created by our connoisseur chefs using ingredients grown in our own gardens.

The Environment

Bluebay Beach Resort is an environmentally friendly holiday destination. Some of the steps we are taking in order to protect our environment from pollution:

  • We have installed a waste recycling plant which recycles all room, kitchen and laundry waste. The purified water is then used to maintain the beautiful tropical gardens.
  • We have installed an incinerator, which is used to incinerate all garden and kitchen rubbish. This is the only one of its kind on the island.
  • Generators are installed in soundproof structures to prevent noise pollution.
  • All refrigerators and air conditioners comply with the latest regulations concerning the use of CFC’s and other ozone harmful gases.
  • The electrical and plumbing installations have been designed by European engineers and conform to the latest EU specifications.
  • All guestrooms are fitted with modern energy saving devices and all electrical installations employ the latest in energy efficient technology.
  • All solid roof areas are designed to allow for the collection of rainwater. This is stored, treated and used to supplement other water supplies.
  • The gardens have been landscaped using indigenous trees, plants, shrubs and ground cover to attract the varied birds of the island and to provide an insight to visitors of the diverse tropical vegetation on the island.
