Sultan Sands Island Resort is situated next to its sister property, Bluebay Beach Resort & Spa on the wide, sparkling beaches of Kiwengwa on the east coast of the island. Sultan Sands Island Resort has its own unique character. An inspired blend of Swahili and Arab architecture and décor creates a relaxed ambience, while first-class amenities and facilities ensure complete comfort.
With its idyllic beach position, relaxing pool and wonderful choice of leisure and dining options, Sultan Sands is the perfect island getaway. Sultan Sands guests also share many facilities with Bluebay Beach Resort, including the famous Oasis Spa and the One Ocean Dive Centre.


The spacious rooms at Sultan Sands are built in a traditional Swahili style with thatched roofs, each tastefully decorated with hand-carved Zanzibari furniture. The Baobab and Pwani Rooms are ocean-facing, overlooking tropical landscaped gardens, while the Bahari Rooms are situated
close to the beach.
