Had we accidentally walked into a sultan’s palace?
The gleaming white entrance lobby – embellished with marble floors, gold silk divans and battered brass lanterns – sure made us think so. Staff padded about wearing flowing white gowns.
And through a row of key-hole shaped doorways, we could see the dazzling turquoise Indian Ocean beyond.
But no, this was Baraza Resort and Spa, Zanzibar.
Zanzibar – and Baraza Resort and Spa – was the perfect place for chilling after canoeing on the Zambezi River in Zambia.
Baraza Resort and Spa, Zanzibar
On Zanzibar, we had already enjoyed the incredibly romantic atmosphere of The Palms (one of Baraza’s sister resorts in the Zanzibar Collection) and the barefoot luxury of andBeyond Mnemba Island Lodge.
Baraza Resort and Spa – located on the white sands of Bwejuu Beach – was our last resort stay on Zanzibar.
All-inclusive Zanzibar hotel
Baraza is one of four Zanzibar beach resorts in the Zanzibar Collection.
It has 30 luxurious one- and two-bedroom villas.
All meals and drinks (cocktails and wines) are included in the rates.
And with four restaurants and two bars to choose from, you never lack for choice!
We found Baraza Resort and Spa to be a resort fit indeed for a sultan (and his princess).
