Stayed at this hotel after going on safari for 11 days. The nice thing was sitting and relaxing at their pool and the beach was a stone's throw away, though most didn't use beach for several reasons. Tides can be either crashing or extreme low tides, bringing water about a mile out from shore. Most people walk the shoreline, if... More

... there are too many fine 5 star hotels out there that offer so much more that I would have to be persuaded to come back to this place and this place has NOT persuaded me for the following reasons: 1) Terrible wifi - it is outrageously bad. I am someone that tends to travel a lot and so I... More

We have just returned from Baraza and it was outstanding. The service especially is exceptional. Each villa is breathtaking, we are a family of four and had a master bedroom and bathroom with beautiful bath and a shower area. We had a big lounge area with TV and DVDs on tap with a double day bed where we would often... More

Baraza is outstanding on all levels but one of the things I liked most about it was it is not that bland 5 star luxury where you could be anywhere, rather you really have the feeling of being in Zanzibar. The food was outstanding. I am usually not a big fan of buffers but the lunch buffets were g=fantastic with... More

A level that is really top notch. We compare it to Banyan Tree, Six Senses and Oberoi. Not a bad word.. well maybe the... More

This is a place to go to if you have a family or group of friends, need some down time and not so much beach. The rooms are not all sea facing so if you are after the sea this is not the place. It is however an amazing place to hang out with friends, very beautiful, peaceful and relaxing... More

This review is a continuation from my previous review of my holiday in zanzibar at Breezes Beach Club and Spa. I had spent 7 nights at breezes and now spent a further 7 nights at baraza to get the whole zanzibar collection experience. Baraza is something else. The whole hotel is a couple of steps higher in quality. It is... More

This luxury resort lived up to its reputation. The lavish property is extremely well maintained and the villas are very spacious. Each morning I woke up to a view of the ocean, as I stayed in the ocean front villa. This all-inclusive resort is supported by an army of staff ready to serve your every need. Every time we lounged... More
