Baraza Resort & Spa


This is an award-winning villa-only resort in which all 30 villas are designed in classic Swahili style with dramatic arches, hand-carved furniture and private plunge pools.

The resort comes with its own water club which offers a selection of high and low tide activities, from diving & sailing, to snorkelling & kite-surfing – and for the sybaritic guest there is a large choice of dining options and a pampering Frangipani spa. An architect’s dream in a paradise setting.


Our Thoughts

A beach hotel that has won numerous awards for its stylish Swahili design - all of the beautiful villas have their own pools as well as hand-crafted furniture. The beach in front of the property is particularly good for kite-surfing with the hotel having the island’s first kite-surf school.

  • Shopping Bazaar

From exotic buffets, fresh barbeque and the catch of the day to a fusion of Indian and Swahili spices, creating a menu across three different locations that is truly unmissable.

  • Ocean Lounge Bar & Restaurant

All rooms are tastefully decorated with speckles of romance. Ivory tones and teakwood furniture carry throughout, with drapes and Zanzibar carvings highlighting that romantic mood. And with luxury bathrooms, you’ll be in simplicity heaven.

When it comes to accommodation there are two bedrooms Garden View and Sultan Room, making it easy for families to have everyone close by.
