A classic tropical beach getaway, the elegant Baraza Resort and Spa is set on Bwejuu Beach in south-east Zanzibar, recently voted one of the top 30 island beaches in the world by Condé Nast.

The continuous stretch of palm trees and soft white sand provides the perfect backdrop for this resort as well as being an ideal base from which to dive the local coral reefs or explore other must-see parts of Zanzibar such as Stone Town and Jozani Forest.

Traveller Reviews

  • All of us want to thank you for the recommendation to go to Zanzibar. It was perfect and the best, best way to end the vacation. The Baraza was incredible and we can't recommend it highly enough. There are many luxurious and beautiful resorts, but the staff at Baraza set it above the rest. They treat their guest with exceptional care and kindness. We couldn't have felt more welcome. The villa was like something out of a fairy tale, the food was amazing at every meal, and the facilities were superb.

  • Baraza, what a brilliant way to end our safari journey. The service at all of these places was excellent. It was genuine and it seemed as though the people were very happy to have us as guests. The food at all places was first class!
