Heaven on earth, in all aspects! Great location, very friendly staff, beautiful and very luxury rooms, good food, the architecture of the hotel is really special and unique, swimming with dolphins and snorkeling are two recommended activities. Great place!

We have been lucky enough to stay at Baraza twice, once just myself and my husband on a romantic break and once with our three teenaged children at the end of a safari. We cant rate it high enough, everything was wonderful. From the moment you are met at reception by your personal helper to the time you reluctantly leave... More

In the restaurant we had exceptional customer service from Kalei. Great food. Just what I needed for a relaxing weekend. I would definitely recommend the resort to... More

This was one of the top resorts that I have visited but the first of its kind in this part of the world. Attentive staff, amazing rooms and facilities and some of the nicest staff I have come across. The beach is not very usable with young children but our kids were more than happy to spend the entire day... More

We were amazed by the size and decoration of our villa (14), which is purportedly "ocean view" - just about true! However, the accommodation is extremely impressive and comfortably arranged. You could live in a place this size! The plunge pool was enjoyable, although we did express the opinion that at number 14 there was a need for a sun... More
