Baraza resort is a very special place. A little piece of paradise that stands above all the other 5 star resorts we have experienced before. It is not just the beautiful open lobby with unique furnishings, the amazing rooms with lavish beds, indoor and outdoor day beds, and huge bathroom, or the beach that goes on forever, but it is...

How do I start to relate how superb this resort is? Beautiful rooms, superb staff and extraordinary levels of service. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff - tape to mend your suitcase - no problem! Unripe papaya to take home with you to your country - no problem! Two members of staff - Ms Jemimah and Mr Kalei... More

We stayed at the Baraza for a week, after a safari in Kenya for our honeymoon. The hotel is absolutely stunning. We stayed in an ocean view villa. The rooms are huge, beautifully furnished and very luxurious. The main pool is fantastic as is the Spa. The food is exceptional in choice, quality and execution. Then onto the staff. I've... More

This resort is absolutely outstanding in every way. Aesthetically beautiful with it's Swahili style Arab architecture , lush tropical gardens and a location to die for, Baraza is a perfect chill out destination. The villas are exquisite, tastefully appointed and very large with the bonus of a great walk in wardrobe/ dressing area so no ugly bags invading the bedroom... More

We stayed at the Baraza for three nights, the perfect conclusion to a week plus of safari. The drive from the airport to the resort was interesting. Long and a bit edgy. Upon arrival, we knew we had made the right choice. This is without a doubt the best place we have ever stayed. Everything looks as if does on... More

There aren't words to describe the beautiful villa you'll get to stay in here. The private pool is large (when you compare to the sister hotel palms) and the service was top notch. Their kid quarter is to recommend if your traveling as a family!

This was our second stay here and again it was outstanding. The service is exceptional with the staff offering you drinks before you realize you need one! The food is absolutely amazing and I would say that it is michelin star standard every night. The villas are huge and are decorated beautifully. They have large bathrooms, a pretty garden with...

Perfection and attention to detail isn't enough to describe the ultimate of luxury resort hotels. We were looking for a place that can end our honeymoon in style having done lots of safari lodges and tented accommodation. We highly recommend going to the hotel's own spa with Anil leading sunrise yoga class both private and not, also do treat yourself... More
