Bwejuu Beach, Tanzania
Located on the Bwejuu beach where a wide coral reef stretches out along the coast, the 5-star Baraza Resort and Spa is an island haven, perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and relaxing. Thirty villas, contrived by skilled local craftsmen with a blend of Arabic, Swahili, and Indian design, each include an en-suite bathroom, freestanding bathtub, walk-in dressing room, living room, large terrace with lounge chairs, and a private plunge pool. The hotel's restaurants range from an open-air terrace where daily breakfast is served, to the Ocean Lounge for light lunch fare, and the Sultans Dining Room, which alternates between a buffet dinner and the chef's daily creations. Head to the outdoor bar for a cocktail under the sway of palm trees, and unwind at the spa, which has a lap pool infused with underwater music, relaxation rooms, a fitness center, and a tennis court.
