The staff were excellent, so attentive. the hotel has 30 villas, but you feel like you are only one of a few guests. Food was amazing, and so much variety. A perfect base to explore the island or just relax and unwind by the pool or lovely beach.

My girlfriend and I decided to Zanzibar in style this time. Baraza is beautifully decorated. It kind of transports you back in time to the glory of the most prosperous Sultans. The attention to detail was quite extraordinary. Our room was amazing. Outside pool, reading room, 4 poster bed with the finest bedding and a bath fir for princess Jasmine....

The villa was large and very well equipped anf decorated, with complementary water, soft drinks, tea and coffee (though just cheap powder coffee ...). Some more plants and/or light fences would be appreciable to secure more privacy when in the villa. Food is very well presented, except for the barbecue evening which was twice a bit disappointing.

My wife and I had an amazing 6 day stay at the Baraza this September. The villa was great, the service was fantastic, and the food seemed to get better and better at each meal. In particular, their breakfast and lunch buffets were plentiful, diverse, and guaranteed to satisfy any palate.

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.
