Baraza Resort & Spa, Bwejuu Beach, Zanzibar
Welcome to pure escapism! From the musicians that remind you of a Sultan's court, to the spice-scented spa and the underwater music in the lap pool, it's no wonder Baraza has collected so many awards!
Taking inspiration from the Sultans of Zanzibar, this fully-inclusive boutique resort is an explosion of rich architecture, history and state-of-the-art facilities, where sheer indulgence is the order of the day.
With just 30 luxurious villas (each complete with terrace and plunge pool), dramatic arches, beautiful antiques and flamboyant décor, intricate details are everywhere you look.
The Frangipani Spa is an oasis within an oasis, the dining is Arabic-Indian-Persian fusion, whilst adrenaline comes courtesy of the nearby reef.
The famed Water Club offers the very best high and low tide water-based activities, including scuba, kite-surfing, kayaking or land-boarding, and, for the younger guests, there's a fabulous, fun-filled kids' club.
