We stayed here in mid september 2016 after a four day safari in the Selous Game Reserve. I had been looking forward to stay in a luxury hotel on a sandy white beach for so long. We have given three stars for mainly these reasons: The hotel itself in terms of decoration and luxury was amazing. When we were shown... More

I had high expectations of Baraza and it exceeded them in every way from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We arrived late and shown to our room promptly so we could still make dinner and invited to meet the next morning so we could have a tour of all the facilities available. The service was exceptional... More

There are 30 individual villas and the rooms, patio, etc are huge! It feels like staying in an individual villa, with all the facilities and not the usual kind of hotel. The owners have put a lot of thought into the Resort. The staff are well trained and the food is very good with a lot of variety. The staff... More

We stayed here for 5 days at the end of 2 1/2 weeks tripping around Africa. It is a very relaxing resort, the pool was really nice and very large and the beach was beautiful. The water goes all the way out so you can take a free Reef Walk with the guides and see all sorts of sea creatures.... More

Excellent food quality and impeccable service. The staff is very nice and I would go back there without an hesitation. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. If you like to spend time by the pool to enjoy life and being taken care of perfectly, well, go there. We got some animation one evening and we could go diving as well,... More

My wife and I have been there in Aug2016 after a safari in Tanzania. Food. Great variety. Solid execution. Tradition and innovation. We appreciated the constant presence of fish in both lunch and dinner menu. Prawns, lobsters are daily available. Lunch buffet is impressive. Bread and focaccia are super. Food is solidly 5 star luxury. Service. Always caring and welcoming.... More
