Baraza Resort & Spa
The Baraza Resort & Spa is one of the top-ranking boutique resorts in the region, located on a superb fine sand beach.
Evocative of the luxurious era of the Sultan, with a blend of Arabic, Indian and Swahili style displayed in the Swahili arches, intricately carved décor, handmade furniture, beautiful antiques and ornate brass lanterns - no detail has been left to chance.
With its unparalleled luxury on Zanzibar island, personal service and charming accommodation, the resort was, unsurprisingly, chosen by Condé Nast Traveller as one of the top 60 new hotels in the world in 2012.
