Baraza lies on the south eastern coast of the island of Zanzibar, along the award winning Bwejuu beach, voted by travel magazine Conde Nast Traveller, as one of the top 30 island beaches in the world.
Approximately 50 minutes' drive from the airport or Stone Town and ten minutes drive from the village of Bwejuu, Bazara is situated on a 240m stretch of fine sand beach, with a coral reef facing the beach that runs down the eastern shore of Zanzibar.
This 30 villa boutique resort evokes the heritage of Zanzibar dating back to the era of the Sultans. Bazara is a fusion of Arabic, Swahili and Indian design, with Swahili arches, intricate hand carved cement décor, beautiful antiques, hand made furniture and intricate brass lanterns.
There are 14 one bedroom villas and 15 two bedroom villas, as well as one Presidential two bedroom villa. All the accommodation villas are designed to characterize classic Swahili architecture featuring dramatic arches, cement Baraza benches and intricate hand carved cement decorations.
The spacious villas feature luxury interiors, beautiful fabrics, hand carved furniture and brass lanterns, large bathrooms with luxury fittings as well as a spacious terrace and private plunge pool.
Inspired by the Sultan’s Bath Houses on the island, the frangipani spa features an innovative and unerstated décor, which reflects a sophisticated Swahili Style.
