All the reviews we read about the Baraza made it sound too good to be true...but it isn't! The hotel, staff, food and location make the Baraza a honeymoon destination of dreams. We had spent 4 nights on Safari in Tanzania at The Selous Riverside Camp (another amazing resort) and then travelled to Zanzibar. Upon arrival at the Baraza we...

Fantastic hotel, beautiful location, luxurious, peaceful and relaxing. And wonderful management and staff. Food and cocktails were great. Diving and snorkling. Day trip to Stone Town was well worth it. We will be back .........

Very unlike us to go back to the same place for a second time let alone a third! They get almost everything right and it is incredibly good value; our kids love it too so everyone is happy. We'll definitely return again!

We traveled to Baraza Hotel from Safari in Selous, it's an ideal short trip to enjoy a more conventional holiday. Baraza is an impressive Hotel, what you see on its web site is what you get. It has been designed by one of the female owners and she has done a fantastic job. No architect restraints on size, especially on...

Thank you to the team at Baraza, what an amazing slice of heaven on earth. The Presidential suite was the ultimate in romantic indulgence and the most perfect place to relax after Safari. The staff were warmly accommodating, the facilities were second to none and the food was outstanding. Deepest thanks and warm wishes

Although we stayed for only a short time - 3 nights - we left feeling completely relaxed. Every aspect of the resort invites this relaxation - from our beautiful ocean view villa with the plunge pool and numerous places to lounge, to the reserved banda (and the staff that brought us water and any other drink we wanted), to the...
