Baraza will always stay one of the nicest vacation places we have been to. We vised in July 2013. The Arabic palace design makes the resort look and feel luxurious. The grounds are spacious and the flowers lush, well maintained, plentiful and of beautiful red and purple color. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, practical and contain all one needs. Maybe...

We loved this resort - it is stunning and the staff are attentive and charming Great food - dinners consist of 5 or 6 courses - they are all beautifully prepared and presented - not too much of anything which is very satisfactory. Wines are great and varied Large sumptious villas (we had a waterfront one) Loved the fact that... More

We decided to stay at Baraza for 3 days/3 nights to end our 3 week Honeymoon in Kenya and it was the perfect place to relax and spend some quality down time together before heading back to reality! Let me start with complimenting the decor and design of Baraza Resort!! The Arabic influence made every inch of Baraza warm and... More

Ths review is a little out of the ordinary in that it doesn't talk so much about the anbience, quality or location of this resort as it does about the people who work there. We had been on safari in Botswana, Namibia and thr Serengeti for three weeks and had booked in to Baraza Resort for four days of relaxation... More

First things first -- know that the beach here is not the best for swimming. The water is full of seaweed and at high tide, it comes right up to the stairs leading down to the beach area. At low tide, you can walk forever out of the reef (get reef shoes from the sports center), which is a really... More

For our 10th anniversary, my husband Obi and i (both lawyers, very critical and well travelled) spent 5 days at Baraza resort at an ocean view villa first week in september. The experience was worth every cent as it was exactly what the doctor prescribed. Lots of pampering (which we did not expect but truely needed to de-stress), attention to... More

We stayed for four nights having done a six night safari and we all thought it was sublime. Superb two bedroom villa with plunge pool and lovely garden. Wonderfully furnished. Excellent bathrooms. The pool and gardens are terrific. It was pretty quiet when we were there, but i think even if it was full, there would be tons of spare... More

My wife and I stayed at Baraza from August 21-25 at the start of our honeymoon. After long travel from the US, we were excited to have a beautiful place to relax, enjoy the sun, and decompress. Baraza was truly spectacular. The resort is beautifully laid out, with a small number of villas and nice lawn/gardens/flowers everywhere. There are beach... More

We spent 10 days on Safari in Tanzania and were told you needed a couple of days rest afterwards to digest the experience. So we looked for a beach in Zanzibar to relax and were told that Baraza was just that. They were wrong: Baraza is much more than that. Truly amazing surroundings, small number of “rooms” (they only have... More
