My husband and I stayed here for a couple nights after trekking with gorillas in Rwanda, and a safari in Kenya. It was absolutely stunning. The rooms are spotless and incredibly comfortable. The bathrooms are large with dual sinks, a tub, and separate shower. The patio and plunge pool were perfect for just relaxing with a book. The beds are... More

This resort is the most amazing all-inclusive experience ever. We stayed in a two room villa with a plunge pool. The pool was amazing having a little place to take a dip during the day, especially when the jets are on. We had read that the beach wasn't awesome because of the reef that is out a bit on the...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the Presidential Suite at this impeccable resort hotel. Out of a dream, this place had it all - gorgeous beach, relaxing atmosphere, personal service, great food, great spa, and stellar accommodations! The Presidential Suite came with its own private villa with 2 MASSIVE bedrooms (a little too big for just... More

Being in the travel industry I get to stay at many incredible hotels during the year. When it comes to personal vacation I want a bit of each hotel I have viewed. Quality accommodation, great view, amazing food, attentive service, relaxing atmosphere and a space to unwind. My wish is always answered and more at Baraza. An all inclusive resort... More

Spent two at the Baraza resort after 6 nights in Arusha, Tanzania on business. It's beautiful but not really suitable for a two night stay especially if it is your first trip to Zanzibar as it was ours, we wanted to see stone town and some other attractions and distances were far! We had one bedroom ocean view villa from... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 day stay at Baraza. There were a few hiccups, but they were nothing compared to the overall excellent service. I strongly recommend this place. And def I will choose it again and again. You should spend more than 3 days, if you can, seriously.

The Baraza Resort and Spa is a luxurious hotel on the seafront near Paje in Zanzibar. It’s designed to seem like a Sultan’s palace, and it lives up to this design exceptionally well. As your arrive, you waft through spacious, moorish-designed anterooms into the reception area, where you’re welcomed and either shown around or guided to your room. Rooms are... More

This beach resort is really lovely...the pool is gorgeous, food fabulous and the décor and design perfect for Zanzibar. We spent 5 nights as a family of four (2 children 9 and 6.) We were very impressed with the way children were welcome at the resort, but it was still a fantastic experience for adults too. The restaurant was very... More

Why stay in boring old Maldives when you can stay in exotic Zanzibar! This must be considered one of the top hotels around the Indian Ocean. Rooms are of a very high standard. Service faultless and there is a choice of restaurants Breakfasts were superb Facilities were good and there are water sports available. Spa was good. Only the internet... More

We stayed as a family in October having been on safari in Tanzania. Right from the moment you arrive you feel welcome and surrounded by a calm oasis of Ottoman charm. The Arabic influence is everywhere. Decor, furnishings are all very beautiful and Middle Eastern, beautifully done. Staff are so welcoming and attentive, we really wanted for nothing. The 'day...
