Baraza Resort & Spa
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Bwejuu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2010

As you approach the hotel, it seemed daunting, but not for long.The reception staff were very welcoming and thorough. The rooms are well spaced out and has a mediterranean feel to it. The room itself (ours was a family room) was a sight for sore eyes. The rooms were clean, cool (26/30 deg celcius outside). Each room( I believe) had their own dipping/plunge pool. This worked well especially with the kids. The bathrooms were spacious and well thought of in terms of the design and layout.
With five in our family. it wasn't crowded at all.
The main pool was a treat with the music and the sunbeds .
It was especially hard to resist the many varieties of food offered during our stay. Being vegeterian and with temperamental kids, the meal times would have been an adventure in itself. However the staff, and the chef managed to achieve the near impossible task (in a hotel) of feeding our kids with the different foods.
The kids club was a real bonus especially when we needed to escape to the spa(another treat) and the gym.
It was hard to leave, but no hesitation in returning to the hotel.

We wanted a warm peaceful break with no hassle and we certainly got it. The staff are warm, friendly and very attentive in a non invasive way. They went out of their way to ensure that we were enjoying our holiday. What can I say... this place is faultless! We have stayed in 5 star accommodation before but this was one of the best with a huge villa and so clean and fresh. One of the major hightlights of this hotel is the food which is a dream. I had barracuda which was exquisite. The curries were to die for and the steak was perfect. We had a fine selection of South African wines to accompany our meals. All in all, it was a perfect holiday and with special thanks to Khali, Sebastian, Mo (watersports) Ken, james and Martha.

Amazing location. Stunning hotel - beautiful spacious rooms. We felt totally relaxed and well looked after. The hotel staff were always extremely attentive and helpful beyond our expectations. The food was simply fantastic. Every meal was made special. We can't recommend this highly enough. It made our honeymoon perfect.

Baraza is the epitome of excellence. It is grand and charming at the same time. I have never seen a more impressive spa on the African continent and the cuisine rivals any top rated restaurant in the world.

Don't waste your time researching other options in Zanzibar...Baraza is the only way to go if you're looking for the best.

There is definitely something special about Baraza...it is not just the beautiful architecture, spectacular beach or the lovely smiles that seemed to be on everyones faces that made us love it...It is a very personal place with so much character. I am surprised to see the below review since we really had a wonderful time from start to finish and find it hard to find fault with anything. The Villas are beautiful and well laid out with loads of space and our own plunge pool. Our villa host took care of us from start to finish with an exceptional attention to detail. Overall we thought the food was excellent, with a great variety every evening. I especially enjoyed the Swahili Night where we got to try the local specialities. The spa has to be one of the best I have ever seen and the treatments and massages I had were world class. Thank you for restoring my aching post safari back! Baraza is a stunning property on an incredible beach and I truly cannot recomend it enough. Thanks to all who made our stay so special.
