The Slipway Hotel is on the Msasani Peninsula, with lovely views over the bay. It's away from the hustle and bustle of central Dar es Salaam, so is well suited for those who wish a more peaceful stay in the capital, and with all the facilities you need on site, there's no need to venture into the city unless you wish to.

There's a choice of accommodation, from economy rooms to seaview suites. Standard features include air conditioning, satellite TV, tea and coffee maker, minibar, safe and an en-suite bathroom. You also have free Wi-Fi internet access, handing for keeping in touch with those back at home. Some rooms have balconies, and suites provide the most space including a sitting room and a balcony.

With a choice of two restaurants you should be able to find the ambience and cuisine you prefer, and there are bars and cafes for lighter refreshments. When it comes to recreation there's an outdoor swimming pool and a gym with a range of exercise machines. While here you can spoil yourself with a visit to the spa.

The hotel is a located next to the shopping complex of the same name, where you can browse for souvenirs, clothes and books. The bank, supermarket and pharmacy provide useful services, all on your doorstep. 

The Slipway began life as a boatyard and you can still sail from the jetty here. There are trips out to the nearby Bongoyo Island, the first marine reserve in Tanzania. It is also possible to go diving, sailing and fishing nearby.

Please note that the hotel can be up to a two hour drive from the airport, depending on traffic conditions, therefore we don't recomend The Slipway for day room use.
