Stayed here for a week in May (rainy season) after the end of a month-long job in Dar es Salaam. Overall it's hard to fault the Baraza and I would go back again -- actually I'd love to experience the place when it's not raining! The facilities were immaculate, both inside and on the grounds, the setting is beautiful, they... More

As usual the food is superb,the set menus get better by the year and the sweets are fantastic. The staff in all areas... More

My wife and I came to Baraza following a safari in Tanzania. The hotel is around an hours drive from the airport. Baraza itself is beautiful with well kept gardens, a great sized pool, spacious villas and a view of the beach/ Ocean that will remain with us for a lifetime. We stayed in the Ocean view villa as opposed... More

Firstly the staff were fantastic. My wife had a bit of gastro and they organised some different food for her. They also fitted her into spa appointments as they were booked out for days. Rooms were excellent and very clean. The food was also very good. Only one little gripe, we don't drink a lot and the cocktails and wine... More

Somewhat quarantined from the localness of Zanzibar, Baraza is a place to unwind if kicking back and relaxing in luxurious surrounds with top-notch service is what you’re after. Located in the Island’s south-east, an hour’s drive from either the airport or Stone Town ($USD60 hotel car or try to negotiate a better price with local taxi), the beach on which... More

Went there for a family holiday. It's about and hours drive from the airport in the middle of nowhere. Very quite and private beach. The resort is quite nice and done tastefully in African style. Limited number of rooms however the ocean view room we had hardly had a view of the ocean. The plunge pools in most rooms needed... More
