I don't know where to start. We stayed at the resort for 4 days during our Tanzania/Zanzibar vacation. The level of service at Baraza was beyond outstanding. The General Manager, Vallaria has gotten everything right about managing a resort. Additionally, the Food & Beverage Manager, Kalei could not have been more attentive. All resort staff could not have been more... More

First time in Zanzibar we stayed in the Baraza Resort, hopefully not the last time. We are still impressed by the personal service and the lovely staff of the five star mid size resort. The food was absolutely gourmet, the activties of the highest level but the end of the day it is the commitment of the staff that made... More

Just returned after a five night stay at Baraza. What a place – the setting and décor are just beautiful and it was so relaxing, just what we needed after a safari in Tanzania. The gardens are very well maintained with so many flowers and palm trees – did not think that much bougainvillea existed in the world! We booked... More

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

Thank you for your candid review. We appreciate hearing your very positive comments about Baraza, as well as areas where you feel we can improve. In regards to an extended check out time, we were delighted to have been able to grant this, despite the fact that the hotel was completely fully booked. As I am sure you can understand,... 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

Thank you for your review of Baraza - we appreciate your feedback as we do with all our guests and we are proud of the outstandingly positive comments from our valued guests from around the world. Unfortunately it appears that you had different expectations when booking Baraza. We are not a Four Seasons resort, nor are we trying to be... 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

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
