Baraza Resort & Spa
Baraza Resort & Spa is an exquisitely designed, award-winning boutique villa property that is a firm favourite amongst the many luxury hotel offerings in Zanzibar.
The resort is part of The Zanzibar Collection with three sister properties nearby, all located at the expansive Bweeju beach – voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world by Condé Nast Traveller – on Zanzibar’s south east coast.
Accommodation is provided in air-conditioned one or two bedroom villas, which are well positioned around the resort’s manicured grounds. All villas have their own private plunge pool, loungers and Sultan’s day bed to help you get into the relaxed way of life here at the coast.
Baraza operates on an all-inclusive basis and the cuisine is excellent with plenty of nods to the diverse cultural history of Zanzibar and the Indian Ocean. There are three dining areas, one for each meal of the day, and all offer up sumptuous delights. Dinner is a slightly more formal affair and gentlemen are required to wear long trousers.
Activities on offer are numerous for those who want to do more than relax during their stay. The resort itself has a gym, tennis court, spa, watersports centre, as well as a kids club and teenage area. One of the most fun things to do is Baraza’s signature Swahili experience, featuring ‘under the palm’ cultural lessons with the resident Mwalimu (teacher).
The resort team can also help organise excursions to make the most of all Zanzibar has to offer, including dolphin safaris, traditional dhow cruises, historical tours, forest walks and spice farm visits.
