We joined the Resort in the low saison, so it was absolutely quiet and totally relaxing. The staff was so friendly and very attentive. Even the manager showed up once in a while to ensure that your stay and needs are taking care off. The food - just amazing, special wishes - no problem. Like I said every time lunch...

Our third visit to Baraza was just as wonderful as our last two stays at the property. It is always a tough decision to choose whether to try somewhere new or to stick with a place that you have previously loved. We wondered whether it was possible to have the same excellent experience three years in a row - happily,...
