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. Fabulous...

Dear Lucja, This is the best opening line of a review for Baraza and we are simply delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We have noted all of your comments and we will look-into them however regarding waiters and drinking; kindly remember that Zanzibar is predominantly Muslim (since the era of the Sultans) we do, however, always have...

My parents, my fiancé and I spent Christmas and New year at the Baraza Resort & Spa, a 15 night stay. I really can't emphasise enough how wonderful the staff at this hotel are. There are too many names to mention but there is no request too much and all of them greeted with a smile. As countless reviews have...

A wonderful place to enjoy the beach. We stay in the Baraza Presidential villa with our older children.  A big villa with two huge bedrooms.  It is right on the beach front with privacy and amazing view.  Beautifully decoration, the people were so kind and food was top class.  Really it was a fantastic holiday and we already plan our...

We stayed here for 3 nights after our 10 day safari. Absolutely beautiful Boutique Hotel. Very attractive beach and grounds. Bougainvillea plants everywhere added so much color. Great pool to cool off in. Not much ocean swimming except at high tide. A large coral flat goes out to the main reef about a half mile out. This can be easily...

A place to remember and to return to! We loved Baraza and have already started planning our next stay. After seven days it was very difficult to leave this wonderful place where every detail has been thought of. Service was attentive and nothing was too difficult.

Impeccable friendly service which was never too intrusive but just right. Food was excellent and I am a very fussy eater but really enjoyed all the different dinners and menus. Stayed in an ocean view room and when we return (yes when) we will try to book an ocean front room. We loved this place because with only 30 villas...

Absolutely the right choice to stay on Zanzibar. We were pleasently surprised by the selection of activities provided. Frangipani Spa is simply incredible. Thanks to our yoga teacher Sri for patience and the entire staff for their kindness that made our stay in Baraza unforgettable.
