Baraza means ‘meeting place’ in Swahili, and this culture of hospitality is engrained in the resort’s interpretation of classic Swahili design, using carefully integrated hand-made details that celebrate the skills of local craftsmen – intricate plaster carvings adorn each pillar and artisan-made furniture in the traditional Zanzibari style. The 30 villa resort is a fusion of Arabic, Swahili and Indian style, a physical reminder of Zanzibar’s heritage. Each villa comprises an en suite bathroom, a Sultan’s lounge bed, mini-bar area, hand-carved furniture and intricate brass lanterns.
