Baraza Resort & Spa is family owned and run. Boasting beautiful architecture, luxurious accommodation, and superb service, as well as offering numerous activities, it’s a contender for finest property on Zanzibar, in our view. Baraza has won a lot of awards, not least Traveler’s Choice 2018 from TripAdvisor! The accommodation is booked on a full-board basis, including all meals, a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, and Wi-Fi. A laundry service is available at extra cost. Baraza provides numerous special offers, such as Early Bird, Kids For Free, and honeymoon packages – please contact us for further information.
ACCESS & LOCATION
The resort is accessed via just over an hour’s road transfer from Zanzibar’s international airport, Abeid Amani Karume. Most travellers fly to the island from Dar es Salaam, which takes approximately 30 minutes. Baraza occupies a gorgeous stretch of white sands along the east coast’s world-renowned Michamvi Peninsula. This beach, Bwejuu Paje, has been included in Condé Nast’s Top 30 Beaches Worldwide!
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Guest accommodation consists of 14 one-bedroom villas, 15 two-bedroom villas, and one royal beach villa with two bedrooms. All are very spacious, with the smallest option offering 148 square metres of floor space, the two-bed villa 193, and the royal beach villa a whopping 254! Every villa is beautifully designed and decorated, characterised by classic Swahili architecture such as smooth arches, cement benches, and ornate lanterns fixed to the walls. Within the one- and two-bed villa categories, guests can opt for either a garden or an ocean view. These types of villa differ only in terms of the number of bedrooms, as both provide master bedroom with en-suite facilities featuring freestanding bathtub, walk-in dressing room, lounge with television and DVD player, mini-bar area with additional tea-and-coffee station, and a pleasant terrace with a couple of sunloungers and your very own plunge pool! The two-bed villa’s second bedroom is also en suite, offering a well-appointed shower room. The royal beach villa has two master bedrooms with en-suite bathroom apiece, a central lounge with breathtaking seafront views, and a terrace with sunloungers and a large plunge pool. A theme of gold runs through all villa options, while the gardens in which they’re set are full of gorgeous green palm trees and lots of vibrant flowers.
Many of the communal spaces at Baraza also favour gold as the base colour. The resort has a great range of lounges, restaurants, and bars. Breakfast is enjoyed at Livingstone Terrace, an open-air eatery serving breakfast every day and dinner on a few weeknights. Ocean Lounge is the place to go for light lunches, featuring Pizza of the Day and some speciality salads. The Sultan’s Dining Room offers delicious dinners, inspired by a number of cuisines – local, Arabic, Indian, Persian, and Swahili. Please note during dinner settings, gentlemen are required to dress in long trousers. And Dhahabu Bar & Lounge is the location for pre- and post-dinner drinks, including adventurous cocktails!
For a little relaxation and revitalisation, you need only head to Baraza’s Frangipani Spa, where expertly trained staff provide a range of massages and other treatments. This venue has a lap pool too, as well as a well-equipped gym and a tennis court. The resort also has a general-use pool, and a shallow-depth children’s pool as part of its kids club facilities! Other attractions for the little ones include plenty of toys and games, and both babysitting and childminding are available at extra cost.
