Bwejuu, South East Coast, Zanzibar, Tanzania
The Zanzibar Collection
The palatial grounds of the Baraza Boutique Resort and Spa speak to luxury. In architecture and design, the 30 villas and the surrounds of beautifully appointed dining areas, sunny bars and lounges by day, romantic candlelight by night, the extraordinary Frangipani Spa retreat, and sundrenched refreshing pool and terrace, reflect a modern envisioning of a sultan’s Zanzibar palace. Gardens with towering palms, tropical flowers, and lush greenery open to green spaces inviting sunshine and casual seating. The ebb and flow of the tides smooth the endless white sands, remnants of limestone and crushed coral form the walls hugging the beach perimeter.
Baraza possesses a sophisticated luxury where contemporary design meets and mingles with elements reminiscent of Zanzibar’s storied past, golden accents and rich woods intricately carved with centuries old traditional motifs.The king sized bed draped in gold trimmed netting overlooks a seating area and a curtained alcove, a perfect sleeping hideaway for a child or two. The incredibly spacious modern bath features a family sized rainfall shower, an imported oval soaking tub with a Zanzibar canopy suspended from the high ceiling, and a mirror in an elegantly carved frame hangs dramatically over the modern twin sinks. Each detail from lighting to linens, draperies and seating, lends an air of authenticity merging with modern comfort and the conveniences of mini fridge, flatscreen TV, DVD player, and Wifi. Outside, your private plunge pool and lounge provide a covered secluded spot for restful repose.
Baraza is an all inclusive resort welcoming friends and families, singles and groups to a carefree relaxed getaway. Buffet style breakfasts usher in the day, and a young staff eagerly works throughout the day to create a delectable menu appealing to all tastes, varying cuisines and versions of eastern and western classics, delighting guests with each course from savory appetizers to the final mouthwatering desserts. Twice a week, themed buffet dinners allow the chefs to showcase their talents with an array of foods from different countries and cuisines.
Families are welcomed with a kids pool, supervised activities and crafts in the Baraza kids club, and babysitting provided at an additional cost.
