Stayed at Baraza just for one night in June 2016. The two-bedroom villas are superb - so much room and truly luxurious. Both bedrooms are en-suite with bath and shower, beds are huge and plenty of wardrobe space. There is also a lounge area and terrace with private plunge pool. Service around the hotel is very efficient but discrete -... More

My mother and I visited Baraza back in June for 5 nights. What an incredible place. We were in a two bedroom villa with its own garden and plunge pool, which was absolutely superb. Nothing was too much trouble, from the momet we arrived, to the moment we left (rather early in the morning, however we were provided with fresh... More

We enjoyed 10 excellent days at Baraza with the most optimal service anyone could ask for and in the most beautiful surrondings - we also utilized the diving center at the sisterhotel 200 meters walk on the beach and had a similar very service oriented experience with the team there for our 8 dives.

Returned to Baraza again, this time with my brother & family. The boys fell in love with the villa daybed. And the ladies sampled the delicious wine and cocktails ... And as always, the food was excellent. Service was wonderful, with special attention to the dietary needs of different members of the family. Unfortunately the weather was rather too windy,... More

My wife and I work in Africa about half time but really get a chance to relax during our 3-4 week trips. At the last minute we booked four days at Baraza for a much needed holiday.

Hotel: Boutique (small, you can walk from one end to the other in 5 mins) but this isn't an issue. What is there is beautiful. It has one main pool which is a good size and is great to sit around.
