Baraza Resort & Spa
Baraza Resort and Spa is a fairly new resort, owned by the same company that runs the adjacent Breezes Beach Club and Palms. The architecture is classic Swahili and the décor comprises the best of locally-crafted lanterns, beds and furniture – with a blend of Arabic and Indian elements. A lot of effort has gone into the decoration, and you’ll see endless white walls adorned with rustic gold pots and plates, mosaic floors and beautifully shaped archways.
Our view of Baraza Resort & Spa
Baraza’s design feels a bit over the top – with gold everywhere – but it has a high-quality air and is very well finished, and so never feels tacky. Baraza’s service is efficient and its food good, so with extensive facilities it feels more like a smart hotel rather than what we’d think of as a ‘resort’. Its price tag is relatively high, but will still appeal to those wanting somewhere smart – especially to families for whom the 2-bed villas are ideal.
