Baraza Resort

Baraza Resort & Spa, Zanzibar amongst the Top 101 Best Hotels in the world, by Tatler In the southwest, Baraza (see our 101 Best Hotels) might be mistaken for a whitewashed sultan’s palace, with shimmering mosaic interiors, lots of creamy, carved marble and battered brass lanterns. It is wonderfully grand and Arabic in style, alluding to the past but totally up to the minute on both comfort and design. The oil lamps are so large that any genie must be a giant.

There are big wooden drying pans of pungent, perfumed cloves and guinea fowl scuttle past the long and languorous pool, amid lanky palms and a blaze of bougainvilleas...It’s this decadence – the private plunge pools, the lush gardens – blended with Swahili style that hits just the right pitch, perfectly walking the tightrope between local authenticity and high-end flair...This is the new Zanzibar Resort – young, sexy, superbly private.

We were lucky enough to spend 6 nights of our honeymoon here. The villas were beautifully decorated and very spacious. We had a private plunge pool, private sun loungers and a reserved area on the beach. At any time if we wanted any food or drink it was provided, made from scratch. The food was tremendous. I had lobster 4 times in a week! One morning the staff said they would like to offer us lunch on the beach. The built a canope from scratch with woven palm leaves and designed a personalised menu. We had silver service on the beach and felt like celebrities.
There is a reef on the beach which you can walk out about 1 mile in low tide and see tropical reef fish. It also means at high tide that the water is very warm.

My family and I were travelling for three weeks in Africa. After two weeks of safari we booked the Baraza Resort and Spa to rest for the end of the trip. It was absolutely amazing! The staff was great and you felt very welcome. The rooms were luxurious and you can get a personal plunge pool and a little reading area. The pool had underwater speakers! It was so cool realizing that you could hear the sports game under the water. They had free, pool toys for the kids and you could do anything out on the ocean, like wind surfing. The ocean was so warm and the tides would go all the way out into the horizon exposing the coral. We even went walking in the coral but we got a mega sun burn. The food was brilliant and there were different themes of food every night so everyone would like the food. It was amazing and my family say that they never would come back to one place twice but Baraza is an exception.

The most fantastic place to stay.

Baraza Resort & Spa is one of the most fantastic places to stay especially if you just want a totally relaxing break. The food is of the highest standard with plent of choice and the service is always friendly and efficient. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and management. The accommodation is spotless and very spacious.This was our second visit to Baraza. When we returned this year there were quite a few staff that we recognised and it was really nice when they remembered us and what we usually drank! We're hoping to book for next year again as soon as we can.I don't think there can be may places as good as this.
