Baraza Resort & Spa
Baraza resort and Spa represents a luxurious concept in hotels on Zanzibar with each individual villa having a separate lounge, terrace and plunge pool. The fusion of Indian, Arabic and Swahili design and decor, together with furniture and fittings specifically designed and commissioned for the hotel makes Baraza a truly unique and magnificent destination.
On the south east coast under an hours drive from the Airport & Stone Town, Baraza has a 400 meter beach-front location on a beach voted by Conde Nast as one of the top 30 beaches in the world.
There are 30 individual villas, 14 are one bedroom of 148 square meters, 15 are two bedroom (193 square meters) and one Presidential Villa (254 square meters).

There is a luxury spa and yoga area, three restaurant areas, pool bar and business centre with internet access. A list of facilities does not do justice to the thought, design, sumptuous decor, furniture and fittings which sets Baraza apart from other hotels. Whilst all this may sound daunting, it has an informal atmosphere engendered by its very friendly staff, is child friendly in terms of providing baby sitting facilities and supervised children’s play area, but also rates are set to attract families with children up to the age of 18 years.
