To be honest, my wife and I were a little sceptical about the many very positive reviews posted about Baraza, but having just spent a week there I have to say that the place is top notch - and we are already planning a return visit! Those in search of lively nightlife would be disappointed. However, anyone seeking a boutique...

We spent 9 days here and it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The resort is situated overlooking the Indian Ocean and is so beautiful, spacious and very stylishly decorated but what really elevates are the staff and amazing food served with warm smiles and friendly charm. The villas are very tastefully designed and offer a high level...

The setting of course is magnificent, but it is not unique. What is really special about Baraja is that it manages the sometimes difficult task of combining a theme embracing Moorish design with surprising sophistication and elegance. Not a fake gold tap to be seen in the large and spotlessly clean beachside villas, all with plunge pools and a miriad...

All the reviews we read about the Baraza made it sound too good to be true...but it isn't! The hotel, staff, food and location make the Baraza a honeymoon destination of dreams. We had spent 4 nights on Safari in Tanzania at The Selous Riverside Camp (another amazing resort) and then travelled to Zanzibar. Upon arrival at the Baraza we...

Fantastic hotel, beautiful location, luxurious, peaceful and relaxing. And wonderful management and staff. Food and cocktails were great. Diving and snorkling. Day trip to Stone Town was well worth it. We will be back .........

Very unlike us to go back to the same place for a second time let alone a third! They get almost everything right and it is incredibly good value; our kids love it too so everyone is happy. We'll definitely return again!

We traveled to Baraza Hotel from Safari in Selous, it's an ideal short trip to enjoy a more conventional holiday. Baraza is an impressive Hotel, what you see on its web site is what you get. It has been designed by one of the female owners and she has done a fantastic job. No architect restraints on size, especially on...
