My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights after a 10 day safari - it was the perfect place to relax at the end of great, but tiring 10 days. I really cannot recommend the Baraza highly enough, unless you are looking for a wild night life and loads of activities. Yes there is access to water sports on the beach either at the hotel or at the 2 sister hotels next door and there was gentle night time musical entertainment, but this is essentially a chill out hotel and it does this to perfection. Our seafront chalet was huge, beautifully appointed and maintained to a very high standard. The staff are second to none and the food excellent and at times outstanding - seafood and lobster in particular was especially good. The grounds are large and extremely well maintained. The sandy beach is beautiful and was never remotely busy. We used the spa once and had the "signature" Sultans Bath treatment which was superb.
Because Zanzibar is a relatively small island trips to anywhere else on the island are easy enough - we visited Stone Town and Jozani Forest (the unique Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkeys arereally cute), and did a dolphin boat trip and a spice tour. All were very enjoyable in their different ways. However, the highlight of Zanzibar for us was simply relaxing and enjoying one of the best hotels we have ever had the fortune to stay in.
