The most beautiful and welcoming hotel, fragrant flowers in a cool fountain and fresh cloths and warm smiles greet you as you arrive. A totally relaxing spa, large pool, expansive beach front of white smooth pure sand and tropical fish on your doorstep. Delicious fresh food, lots of tempting choices and endless fruit smoothies and juices by the pool to... More

My family went to Baraza Resort and Spa in February of 2011 and had the most amazing time! We were already quite farmilar with the neighbouring properties that are owned by the same family (The Palms and Breezes). We wanted to try Baraza this time and treat ourselves to a luxurious holiday. We could not have chosen a better destination!!... More

Zanzibar was a last minute choice for us and we were not disappointed with Baraza. It was wonderful in every aspect. It stands out for both my husband and me. We both travel frequently for both business and pleasure and everything about this resort was superb. It was 5 star, professional but without being stuffy. For our 11 year old... More

Coming from the US, Tanzania is a long trip, but if you are on Safari ending the experiece with a a few days in Baraza is well worth it. The facilities are top notch and on par with any 5 star hotel. The villas are incredible, large, clean and extremely private.. and a welcome oasis after a week in the... More

Visited Zanzibar for the first time and wasn't disappointed. The small plane transfer over from Dar (20mins) gave us some fatastic photo opportunities of the turquoise water surrounding the tiny islands. Zanzibar itself is a decent size, and the transfer to Baraza took 1hour (mostly due to some pretty poor roads). Entering Baraza you could be forgiven for thinking you... More

We stayed at Barazza for 4 days after a safari, at the beginning of December. It was low season and the Hotel was very empty which on the one hand meant that we had the most fantastic attention from the staff but on the other did mean that ther was very little atmosphere in the hotel which, to be honest,...

My husband and I stayed at Baraza for 8 days at the beginning of October. I can honestly say that our first reaction on arriving was 'WOW'. Our jaws hit the floor. This place is so opulent. The gardens are beautiful, the buildings and villas outstanding, the beach is a white sand paradise which was practically deserted during our whole... More

After a safari in Tanzania we spent 5 days relaxing in Zanzibar. Unfortunately the sea-front villas were all booked but we had a beautiful sea-view villa. The villas are incredible and you have a private terrace with a small pool all for yourself! The food was truly 5 star and we loved the variety. Being Italians we had very high... More

I have to agree with the other reviews on here which mention food as an issue. The standard was really low and I can honestly say there wasn't one meal in our week stary I genuinely enjoyed or would eat again. It's a real shame as the rooms and the design of the place are all stunning. The pool is... More
