We stayed at Baraza after a seven day safari in Tanzania and it really exceeded our expectations. The only unfortunate things was that we had booked only 3 nights which we now realize was too short. We would have liked about 5 days to rest and recover after the safari and have a chance to enjoy the beach more. Before...

After 5 night on safari we came here for some R&R. We were upgraded to the presidential suite, WOW! It was a house with 2 bedrooms, small kitchen, & our own pool. We were treated like royalty. The food was good. The grounds & rooms were clean. Bougainvilleas blooming everywhere. The 20 year olds with us would have liked some...

I stayed two nights at this property and this was following my two-night stay at Zawadi (see separate review). I do not like to spend too long at one hotel and like to experience various hotels. The spa here is out of this world! My pet peeve is travelling half way across the globe to find branded spa treatments that...

My family and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at Baraza in early January. We were 3 generations; grandparents, parents and children and I can quite honestly say that it catered for every single one of our needs. From the beautiful and tranquil spa, the kids club, the delicious gourmet food (and cocktails which are great too!), watersports...

Baraza is an amazing hotel: the facilities are great, the spa is absolutely splendid and the location (next to a beautiful beach) is ideal. You can also cycle on the beach as it is possible to rent bikes or dive. The food is delicious and the huge breakfast with everything you want is unforgettable. The service is also impeccable. A...

We were a party of 6 people that stayed at the Baraza Resort for 5 nights over New Year and had the most wonderful relaxing stay following our safari in Tanzania.

Having previously stayed (and thoroughly enjoyed) sister hotel Breezes, we decided to take a family holiday at Baraza at the start of the Christmas holiday. Our week proved why Baraza's been rated the number one hotel in Africa and top 25 in the world in its category. The location is stunning - the pristine, hassle-free white sands of Bweju. The...
