Baraza is one of the newer hotels on Zanzibar, located on the South East of the island next to its sister holels, Palms and Breezes. With 30 Villas this hotel may sound large, but the layout and design makes your stay very relaxing and comfortable with the Persian architecture, number of different eating areas and bars and in our opinion the best spa on the island!
Baraza - The Details
Baraza is a Luxury Resort on the South East coast of Zanzibar which is just off the coast from Tanzania, only a 20 minute flight from Dar es Salaam.
Baraza has 30 villas; 14 one bed villas, 15 two bed villas and a presidential Suite. The 1 bed villas are split into 2 rows at the front with Ocean Front and Sea view, you then have the 2 bed villas for the next 3 rows back away from the beach. We would recommend staying in the Ocean front villas if possible so you are literally on the beach, with great views out to sea. Each room is designed with influences from Zanzibar’s history - a fusion of Swahili and Arabic touches, private plunge pools, very spacious, fully air conditioned rooms and a fresh feel. Baraza has focused on attention to detail at all levels.
Baraza has some of the best facilities on the island and despite being a 30 villa hotel you can expect the standard and service of a smaller boutique hotel. We feel this hotel can meet the requirements of honeymooners as well as families, with spacious rooms, huge bathrooms and one of the best waters sports centres on the island.
