One of the best places I've ever stayed in. Everything is pure class. Luxury, spacious villas, lovely beach, very kind and friendly, helpful staff and the best food I ever tasted. The dinner was just overwhelming, damn good :) As I work as a travel agent I just had one night here but I had the chance to do a... More

I stayed at Baraza for 4 nights at the end of May. I would recommend staying during this time as it is the end of the low season so the weather was perfect, prices are lower and there were no crowds. The resort did a perfect job of facilitating our requests/needs. We used them to hire our drivers to and... More

The Baraza property from the Zanzibar Collection, takes you to a different world. It's like being in the Arabian Nights along the Indian Ocean. The decor is so unique, elegant and subtle, yet gives you a feeling of being the Royalty. The Villas are so spacious, and the ambience is warm & luxurious. Each villa has its own private plunge...

This review is going to start right from my flight to Zanzibar as the hospitality of the people began. The pilot took us as close as possible to the Mount Kilimanjaro, and what a breathtaking view it was! The transfer driver was so informative all the way to the resort. Soon as I reached Baraza, they had lemon fresh towels... More

We had a short holdiay at Baraza and truly this is a magnificent resort. The rooms are beautiful, clean and really well attended. Staff is helpful and friendly. We travelled in April which is supposed to be the rainy season but we were lucky enough to have sunshine. No mosquitos (strange). The only drawback is the diving center which caters... More

The staff here could not do more to take care of your every need as soon as you step out of your car. The place itself is breathtaking and set right on a white sand beach. We had a two bedroom villa for ourselves and son, aged 8 who visited the kids club twice in our eight day stay and... More

Arrived at Baraza after an eight day safari in Tanzania needing R&R and I was not disappointed. The accommodations are all villas featuring luxury interiors, large bathrooms, spacious terrace and private plunge pool. The beach has a natural reef so no need to worry about waves. Lots of choices at the breakfast and lunch buffet. Food is good. Staff friendly.... More

Be advised that Baraza asks East African residents to pay in advance *in full* and will not confirm a booking until said payment in full is received (and, they have a draconian cancellation policy). And theres an egregious 5% surcharge for credit catd payments. Puts you off. The place itself is delightful and the staff very attentive. What lets it... More

About an hour in the taxi from Zanzibar airport and you arrive at this great place. We came for 9 nights of relaxation after 4 nights on safari. We just wanted to chill and this was the place to do it. The are about 30 ish villas in total, 7 of which are right on the beach -we had one... More
