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...

Zanzibar, and the Baraza Resort and Spa, was our last stop during our 2-Week safari trip. It was great to relax and end our trip, after many early morning safari game drives. This property is one of the most beautiful beach properties, my husband and I have visited (and we live in a cold US state, so we've been to...

Heaven comes to mind when I think back on our stay at Baraza! Location, architecture (regal, unassuming, nothing taller than the palm trees), staff (Daniel and Gharib looked after us, Kalei and Esther orchestrated memorable meals, Gladness served our meals, Musa/Idi at watersports) the hotel layout and of course, the AMAZING food. OMG, Baraza gives a whole new meaning to...

As most Zanzibar oceanside resorts does, Baraza also has an unassuming iron gate. Once it is opened you go into few meters of trees & bushes and finally the main entrance designed old Arabia ( more Moroccan ). The combination of North West African architecture with the breathtaking east Africa ocean colors & greens proved to be perfect in Baraza....

We really enjoyed our recent 17 night stay at Baraza. The location is stunning, the villas excellent, the gardens beautiful, the wine excellent and well-chosen, the food wonderful.

Now, to be honest, Baraza is perfect; so perfect that it’s boring to review it. Our villa: spacious, comfortable, filled with stylish Zanzibar antique furniture. Beach: beautiful, clean, not crowded at all. Beautiful grounds, villas surrounded with flowers, wonderful reception area in Zanzibar style, with antiques, old wooden carved doors and other lovely items. A nice pool. Eating: excellent.
