Luxury Holidays At Baraza Resort and Spa

Baraza is an architectural delight, blending Swahili, Arabic and Indian styles to create a stylish building reminiscent of the Sultans' Palaces of Zanzibar. Luxurious interiors celebrate the skills of local craftsmen, featuring dramatic arches and hand-carved furnishings, off-set by cooling colour schemes and spacious terraces with private plunge pools. Choose from one-bedroom or two-bedroom villlas with views of the fragrant gardens or shimmering Indian Ocean.

Relax along the palm-fringed sands of award-winning Bwejuu-Paje beach, or head to the Frangipani Spa where essential oils infused with cinnamon, cloves and peppercorns will work their magic. Meanwhile, younger guests can enjoy hours of fun in the Baraza Kids' Club, complete with a shallow children's pool. In the restaurants, the chefs are waiting to provide a fusion of culinary delights using Swahili, Persian and Indian recipes, infused with spices from Zanzibar.

The Frangipani Spa, situated in the tropical gardens, offers a world-class selection of facilities as well as health and beauty treatments. There is a lap pool with soothing underwater music and professional therapists from Thailand, Bali and India.
