We have just returned from paradise, and if you are looking for a luxurious beach hotel for your honeymoon, a special birthday or anniversary, or simply your next family holiday, we think you will struggle to find anywhere more beautiful than the Baraza Resort & Spa in Zanzibar.
Part of the über luxurious Zanzibar Collection, a small portfolio of family owned resorts including Breezes Beach Club and The Palms, Baraza is an impeccably styled resort nestling on Bwejuu Beach, voted by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the Top 30 Island Beaches in the world.
Beautifully designed with a fusion of Arabic, Indian and Swahili design, the Baraza Resort and Spa looks more like a Sultans Palace than a hotel, with handmade furniture, intricate brass furnishing, luxurious fabrics, and beautiful antiques filling every corner, yet it is still bright and airy thanks to the pristine white walls (you won’t find a single mark!) and Swahili arches that adorn every building.
At Baraza, all guest accommodations are sumptuous villas with their own plunge pool, so you can really get away from it all. With the average 1 bedroom villa measuring 148sq meters, these spacious villas are larger than many European apartments, and they include every amenity you could possibly wish for during your stay.
The staff at Baraza are quite simply exceptional. Always available yet never intrusive, it is as if they can sense your every need. Just when you would like a glass of water – the ice bucket appears next to your sun lounger, as the sun starts to set, the cocktail menu appears, and during dinner, your wine glass is certainly never empty!
A real all-inclusive resort where you can have whatever you want, whenever you want, Baraza Resort & Spa was made for the discerning traveller, and if you are looking for somewhere truly unique for your 2016 holiday, we can highly recommend you make this your destination…
