Safari Highlights

Baraza Resort and Spa is a luxurious boutique hotel situated along the award-winning Bwejuu beach on the south eastern coast of the island of Zanzibar.

Baraza Resort & Spa, ZanzibarState of the Art

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.

Baraza has a state of the art design of Swahili culture that will tell it all beyond the décor. The library features a selection of historical and educational books on Zanzibar, Swahili language classes, and regular performances from Swahili dancers and singers help keep important cultural traditions alive. Finally, the resort restaurants take pride in showcasing the island’s produce and spices, drawing upon Arabic, Indian, Persian, Asian and Swahili flavors in their creative cuisine.
