Need to Know

“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 is this decadence blended with Swahili style that hits just the right pitch, perfectly walking the tightrope between local authenticity and high-end flair.” Tatler
