Our Opinion
Baraza is the first true European standard 5* hotel in Zanzibar and it is totally unique in its design and layout. It’s like nothing else on the island.The word “heavenly” is not an exaggeration. The private villas are spacious, lush and exquisitely decorated just like the rest of the hotel.

The Spa is one of the best we have seen the world over, with expert masseurs and therapists sourced from a variety of different countries and backgrounds.All the staff are extremely helpful and attentive, and they understand the delicate balance of personal service and privacy. The food at Baraza is absolutely superb – as is the tasteful evening entertainment, and the wine!

We don’t think anyone will be disappointed with this hotel – It’s just Divine!
