I only stayed in Baraza for one night but it was enough for me to be dazzled. The staff was amazing and very helpful. The swimming pool there is amazing BUT nothing compared to the white sand beach. The room was bigger than what I expected which added to my happiness.

After 2 weeks on safari, we relaxed here for 5 days with great food and service. Relaxation is what this beautiful resort is all about, the beach is a little tricky, low tide there is no real access to the water just coral for about 1/2 KM until the water, and high tide the surf is too rough and the...

We visited Baraza for 5 days in August for an extended family holiday and absolutely loved it. The setting, service and attention to detail all exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at several hotels on the coast of Kenya and Tanzania before and Baraza really ranks very high up there with the best.

We stayed here for 6 nights following our safari trip and it was perfect. The 2 bedroom garden villa was beautiful and amazingly luxurious. Food and service was great and we felt totally pampered. Would recommend this resort to anyone

We just returned from our family holiday in Baraza and had to review this amazing place. The architecture is very true to its locality and the low rise design of all the villas and main buildings lends itself to giving a very exclusive feel. Although it was high season and the resort fully booked there was an overwhelming feel for... More
