Baraza Resort & Spa, Zanzibar
This stunning, all-villa boutique resort sits on Zanzibar’s south-east coast on the dazzling powder white sands of Bwejuu Beach – voted one of the top 30 island beaches in the world. A fusion of Swahili, Arabic and Indian design, with magnificent arches and ornate brass lanterns, Baraza evokes a heritage of Zanzibar, dating back to the era of the Sultans. Family-owned and run, here you feel a true sense of the spirit, history and legacy of Zanzibar. You can try your hand at palm weaving, visit the local clinic and school and learn to cook signature local dishes.
Baraza Resort & Spa
Each of the 30 villas (one and two bedroom categories) has a private plunge pool. Inside, the villas are spacious and have free standing baths in the ensuite bathroom. Outside, enjoy the large terrace with sun loungers. For the ultimate indulgence, there is also the Two Bedroom Ocean Front Presidential Villa.
Food at Baraza has flavours of Arabia, India, Persia, Asia and Swahili. The Sultans Dining Room is an open air restaurant with a beautiful Arabian feel. Breakfast is served at the Livingstone Terrace overlooking the manicured gardens. Your stay is all-inclusive.
The Frangipani spa is a sophisticated haven offering a range of treatments and therapies. It has its own lap pool with underwater music and indoor and outdoor relaxation rooms.
Baraza’s captivating elegance is complemented by a variety of facilities, including the Frangipani Spa with lap pool, a swimming pool, tennis court, yoga and fitness centre and the beachfront Water Club which offers kite surfing, wind surfing, sailing and bikes for exploring the local villages and coastline. Baraza is one of four hotels which make up the privately-owned Zanzibar Collection, one of the island’s first investors in tourism who also run Zanzibar’s Rising Sun Dive Centre – East Africa’s only National Geographic affiliated dive centre.
