Located in the southwest of Zanzibar, Baraza might be mistaken for a whitewashed sultan's palace. It is wonderfully grand and Arabic in style, alluding to the past but totally up to the minute on both comfort and design. It's this decadence - the private plunge pools, the lush gardens - blended with Swahili style that hits just the right pitch, perfectly walking the tightrope between local authenticity and high-end flair... With just 30 villas, this stunning fully inclusive resort evokes the heritage of Zanzibar dating back to the era of the Sultans.

Overnight: Baraza Resort & Spa

Days 9 & 10 - Zanzibar
Spend the next two days relaxing, going on a dhow cruise, fishing, scuba diving or snorkelling in some of the most pristine coral reefs of the Indian Ocean. Alternatively spend time in Baraza's fabulous spa offering a wide range of treatments.

Overnight: Baraza Resort & Spa
