Your Gateway in the Heart of Dar es Salaam
The White Sands Resort and Conference Centre is situated on an idyllic private beach, just 25km north of Dar es Salaam and Julius Nyerere International Airport. Dar es Salaam means ‘abode of peace’ and it is no surprise that guests start to relax and feel at peace as soon as they enter the reception of the White Sands Resort and Conference Centre. The resort is on Mbezi Beach, one of the long white sandy beaches that makes Tanzania a haven for beach lovers. The decor contributes to the feeling of being in paradise.
