We have just returned from Baraza and it was outstanding. The service especially is exceptional.
Each villa is breathtaking, we are a family of four and had a master bedroom and bathroom with beautiful bath and a shower area. We had a big lounge area with TV and DVDs on tap with a double day bed where we would often find our 13 year old. The boys had a twin room with ensuite shower room. Outside we had a garden with day bed, plunge pool and sun loungers.
The main pool is big and we swam every morning, a necessity when there is so much food on offer! The beach is like a dream, beautiful white sand and warm sea with palm trees surrounding and beautiful weather. In August there is a welcome breeze by the sea taking the edge off of the heat.
The spa treatments we had were wonderful and very reasonably priced.
Before our trip we worried about the tide, would it be ok when the sea was out? It was even better, walking and exploring on the coral was fantastic. There is always a time of day when you can swim in the sea and if you want to take out a canoe or board.
Baraza stands out as the service is truly exceptional, from our villa host Jemima, who I am missing very much, to the restaurant staff who catered to our dietary requirements checking menus with us daily to the front of house staff who helped us more than we could have imagined when our flights changed on our departure day to a time that would have meant we would not get back to the UK.
Baraza sent a member of staff with us to the airport to sort out our problem and ensure we landed in Nairobi for a connecting flight on time. They stayed with us until the tickets were paid for. A stressful situation was made so much easier by having a local with us to negotiate.
We went for seven days which was a little bit too long with two teenage boys but five days would have been perfect. Men have to wear long trousers for dinner, not smart, just long!
One of the most wonderful places we have ever stayed.
