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 and welcome drinks ready.
Daniel showed us through the beautiful resort, through the passages with keyhole arches and stunning ornaments. I fell in love with the Arabian decor. Took me to villa 10. It only gets better! The draped four poster bed, which was very comfortable, a window seat. Large, extremely spacious bathroom with a free standing bath and a big walk in closet which has more than enough hanging and shelving space. The lounge area has its own window daybed with another one outside in the patio. The best is your own private plunge pool with a view of the ocean! And it's all very clean.
The rest of the resort is just as beautiful. The keyhole shaped archess and drapes with the ever smiling staff available to fulfill your any possible needs! From the manager, assistant managers and chefs to the whole staff, i cannot say enough about your amazing hospitality.
I've been to many 5* star hotels but haven't experienced the kind, gentle staff as of the Baraza. They have truly pampered me.
The food, there's so much variety from breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea right up to dinner. I loved the fresh coconuts and fresh mixed juices that kept on flowing. You're asked your preference of the type of food you like and voila!, it's there. If you're not at the poolside for the sundowners, they're brought to your room with appetizers.
It was an awesome holiday that Baraza made possible.
