Bagamoyo is known for the desecration of the human race that occurred many years ago in this Swahili Coast town due to the heinous slave trade. In spite of this unpleasant history, today, Bagamoyo is one of the most wondrous tourist destinations for practically any person who wishes to spend a vacation or just to relax for the weekend or any particular day.
There are numerous beach resorts in various parts of the town, among which the Bagamoyo Millennium Sea Breeze Resort and the Bagamoyo Millennium Old Post Office Hotel (La Renaissance) have both earned a well-deserved name as they are the most suitable destinations for various memorable occasions, from honeymoons to weddings; from meetings to workshops; as well as weekend romantic getaways. While the Sea Breeze Resort is a traditional beach resort, La Renaissance is a more modern hotel, fashioned from the renovated post office building. The name Old Post Office literally refers to East Africa’s FIRST post office under German colonial rule (Deutsche Ost Afrika). It has been called “La Renaissance” to signify the “rebirth” of the old post office into a new luxurious hotel. The building was restored into one of the most beautiful hotels on the Bagamoyo coastline, while preserving much of the Old Post Office as possible. This is where modernity meets tradition; a unique setting that has welcomed many visitors to the Hotel, who leave Tanzania with unforgettable memories of their visit to Bagamoyo. La Renaissance lies a stone’s throw from the Bagamoyo Fish Market as well as the first customs office (Sea Port) in Bagamoyo, which, in one way or another, operates even to this day.
The two Resorts are also popular destinations with the public sector, which has repeatedly used their services for meetings, conferences and workshops, held on various occasions at the Resort.
