Baraza Resort & Spa nestles on the southeast coast, directly on the 400-meter white sandy beach of Bwejuu.

With only 30 villas, this exclusive resort exudes Zanzibar heritage, going back to the ancient days of the Sultan era. You will notice a combination of Arabic, Swahili, and Indian design, with Swahili-style arches, intricate hand-decorated décor, beautiful antiques, handcrafted furniture, and ornate brass light fixtures.

Guests have access to three restaurants, bars, lounges, a wellness/spa area, and a swimming pool with underwater music. In the library, guests can enjoy a wide selection of books, reading materials, board games, and card tables. Younger guests will have fun at the Baraza kids' club.

Baraza also presents traditional Swahili dancers and singers, and the Taarab Band plays music heard as far back as the court of Sultan bin Said in 1880.

All 30 villas reflect classic Swahili architecture with theater arches, stone benches, and hand-carved stone decorations. The spacious one or two-bedroom villas offer comfortable interiors. Other amenities include a separate living room and bedroom, large bathroom with separate shower and freestanding bathtub, hairdryer, bathrobe, walk-in closet, TV, CD player, tea/coffee making facilities, minibar, air conditioning, a spacious terrace, and a private swimming pool.
