The beach front Villa was hedonistic luxury.....stunning decor and always a full fridge. The Hotel service was excellent and all the staff very friendly. We feasted everyday before, between and after relaxing on the Golden sands of The Indian Ocean. Definitely will not dissapoint

Our third visit to Baraza was just as wonderful as our last two stays at the property. It is always a tough decision to choose whether to try somewhere new or to stick with a place that you have previously loved. We wondered whether it was possible to have the same excellent experience three years in a row - happily,...

"Heavenly" is how my 5 and a half year old described our time at Baraza. My family and I stayed for 3 nights at the Baraza in a 2 bedroom garden bungalow which was spacious and comfortable. The food was excellent, the staff were superb and the amenities were fantastic. What makes this resort special is its size, not too...

Baraza was a superb place to stay. The hotel is really beautiful and the grounds and all interiors are really well done. The food was exceptional... both the buffet style dining and the a la carte options were of a very very high standard. The kids menu provides good safe bet options for children who are not keen to try...

We were here for 3 nights with our 13 & 15 year old after being on safari for two weeks. It is a great way to wind down after doing a safari. Our room (villa) was huge. I think every villa has a plunge pool which was a lot of fun. The pool is beautiful and they do have a...

To be honest, my wife and I were a little sceptical about the many very positive reviews posted about Baraza, but having just spent a week there I have to say that the place is top notch - and we are already planning a return visit! Those in search of lively nightlife would be disappointed. However, anyone seeking a boutique...

We spent 9 days here and it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The resort is situated overlooking the Indian Ocean and is so beautiful, spacious and very stylishly decorated but what really elevates are the staff and amazing food served with warm smiles and friendly charm. The villas are very tastefully designed and offer a high level...

The setting of course is magnificent, but it is not unique. What is really special about Baraja is that it manages the sometimes difficult task of combining a theme embracing Moorish design with surprising sophistication and elegance. Not a fake gold tap to be seen in the large and spotlessly clean beachside villas, all with plunge pools and a miriad...
