From the moment we were welcomed 'home' to Baraza, our 2 week stay was perfection. There are two essential ingredients which make this hotel exceptional: the beauty and the staff. Everywhere you look is beautiful and tranquil, and every member of staff does their utmost to make you happy. It's a little unfair to single out particular members of staff... More

There is not much to add to all the previous reviews on Baraza Resort. Every member of the staff wants to assure your stay is as comfortable and perfect as possible. Due to a long travel, the first morning we were late for breakfast, and 15minutes later they made us a special breakfast. It is just one example of many.... More

Spent 3 nights here after our safari. It was such a pleasure to arrive at this beautiful and luxurious resort. The spa was amazing and a perfect way to unwind after our safari.

Honeymooners, were on a safari ober a year ago and could not get to Zanzibar, so we finally did for our honeymoon. Great resort, great location, great scenary. We booked the ocean view villa number 2, spacious room, in front of the water but far from loud at night. Fun to watch and enjoy the high/low tides...reef shoes and bikes... More

This place is a gem. From our initial arrival, when our host Jemimah greeted us with such enthusiasm and friendliness, to the wonderful meals we enjoyed, the great gym and spa, and the brilliant (and well priced) extra experiences, we were blown away. The food is stunning, and the F & B executives Kalei and Esther took enormous trouble. It... More

I stayed for 7 nights in Baraza in July with my husband. It was part of my 50th birthday celebration and was preceded by a 7 day safari in Northern Tanzania. Baraza proved to be the perfect tonic to the Serengeti dust and ‘free African massage’! We have stayed in many lovely hotels, but they are all surpassed by our... More

We stayed at this resort for six nights as a family of four in one ocean front villa and one ocean view villa. Firstly, this was a very family orientated resort. During the time we were there, there were lots of families with young children. I would not return for a honeymoon as the main pool is constantly full of... More

We spent 8 days in a tastefully furnished bungalow next to the Indian Ocean. The staff is very polite and helpful, the food and beverages are excellent.

The Baraza is worth the splurge! The room was luxurious and very well appointed. The plunge pool offered a great private alternative to the beach and pool which was perfect for quality time for my husband and I. The sultan's lounge bed served as a reading area and we quite enjoyed it. The freestanding tub with scented salt scrub was... More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and pampered. There was no request big or small that wasn't met with a smile. The staff are warm and accommodating, the food excellent, the accommodations beautiful. It is a perfect conclusion to a safari holiday.
