Baraza Resort & Spa, Zanzibar amongst the Top 101 Best Hotels in the world, by Tatler
In the southwest, Baraza (see our 101 Best Hotels) might be mistaken for a whitewashed sultan’s palace, with shimmering mosaic interiors, lots of creamy, carved marble and battered brass lanterns. It is wonderfully grand and Arabic in style, alluding to the past but totally up to the minute on both comfort and design. The oil lamps are so large that any genie must be a giant. There are big wooden drying pans of pungent, perfumed cloves and guinea fowl scuttle past the long and languorous pool, amid lanky palms and a blaze of bougainvilleas...It’s this decadence – the private plunge pools, the lush gardens – blended with Swahili style that hits just the right pitch, perfectly walking the tightrope between local authenticity and high-end flair...This is the new Zanzibar – young, sexy, superbly private.
Hotel recommendation of: BRITISH HARPERS BAZAAR • November 2009 "The World's Most Breathtaking Beaches"
Baraza, a cool hotel in Zanzibar (southeast coast) "Best [beach option] for escapists," raves Harper's Bazaar about Baraza, a new resort in Zanzibar, Tanzania comprising 30 luxury villas on a long stretch of powdery sand on Bwejuu Beach. "At low tide, you can walk for miles in specially provided sandals, almost up to the edge of the reef; at high tide, dive straight up into silky waters outside your front door." Good, romantic spot to chill.
"Après Safari Treatment"
The "Après Safari Treatment is to be recommended. It consists of a combination of treatments designed to soothe the skin and to regenerate the body after a trip to the dusty and bumpy roads in the African bush. The Frangipani Spa is a tranquil haven designed to stimulate the senses and to achieve complete relaxation of body and mind.
