Luxury at Baraza

A luxurious resort with a very serene feel. When we were there it was pretty much half couples, half families, but the overall atmosphere was quiet, perfect for relaxing.

Plus points :
Beautiful interior design throughout in white and gold, with pretty well maintained gardens. Our very spacious two bedroom garden villa was extremely stylish.

A huge pool, very clean. Staff very attentive bringing drinks to sun loungers.

Very good lunch (always a buffet) and delicious dinners alternating between buffet and table service each night which worked well.

Not so good was the long, not very lovely, drive from the airport (well over an hour) Also meant it was a long journey to Stonetown which we would have liked to visit one day, but couldn't face the journey.

The beach looks pretty when the tide is in but not too inviting for swimming because it is so tidal . We did walk out to the reef once which was fairly interesting, looking for sea anemone etc but we had no desire to do it again!

Baraza Resort & Spa review

The Baraza meets all expectations of a beautiful & all inclusive resort on a spectacular white sandy beach.

The rooms are very spacious & the constant provision of food & drink ensure that you are never hungry or thirsty. All the staff are extremely attentive but without being overly so.

Despite the resort being at maximum occupancy when we were there, the options of excursions, the beach, the pool area & the private garden / plunge pool facility that comes with each villa, meant that there was never any stress finding your spot to relax at any time of day.

We used the Dive Centre at Breezes where the dive masters were exceptional in their enthusiasm & commitment to getting our children qualified as scuba divers. However, if you want to swim in the sea without diving, it's limited to snorkelling safaris off a boat or high tide swimming due to the coral & sea urchins that are part of the local habitat.

Luxury feel but perhaps more staff?

Very nice, almost colonial feel. Big Long Beach, not crowded

Resort is stretched out along the beach so sometimes hard to get a waiter, maybe a bit more staff needed to cover the pool and the beach (luxury problem..)

The buffet nights wasn't as impressive as the set menu nights, in fact it felt a bit cheap. Food was good quality though for the most part. 45 min to prep your lunch options was a bit ridiculous though.

About 1hr drive from Stonetown, 45min from airport

Amazing

Wow, this place is truly special. The architecture is stunning and beautifully thought out, lots of space.

Everything is kept absolutely immaculate and the friendly staff are so well trained they think of what you need before you do!

The food is just fantastic.

If you get a chance to stay here do so!

Baraza Resort & Spa review

We had a wonderful experience at The Baraza Resort apart from issues on our first day re buffet dining.

I had specified at booking that we did not want to stay anywhere that served buffet food for dinner. I was assured that dinner at Baraza was "a la carte" but found to our disappointment it was not. However once we spoke to the agent he alerted the manager to our concerns and it was sorted.

Our accommodation was excellent and immaculate.

The service throughout was first class, every whim was met with a smile and no effort was spared on us.

Great Family Vacation

Our family had a fantastic time at Baraza.

The villa was spectacular and such a nice place to come back to after a day in the sun. We found the service to be excellent, the location was stunning, the amenities and activities were very good.

There were plenty of opportunities for water activities and we really enjoyed the snorkeling excursion.

Baraza Resort and Spa

Baraza is located on the west side of Zanzibar, which is a part of Tanzania. It is a very lovely, lush hotel on the Indian Ocean with a white sand beach, one of the 30 best beaches in the world.

The food is varied and served in different areas. It has a very definite Arab/Indian flavor, and it is delicious. The staff are excellent and very attentive. Most of the people we met were going to Zanzibar at the finish of their safari, and you know why when you arrive. It is the perfect place to relax and let the world go by. I would say that Baraza is one of their finest hotels.

It is a place to visit again.

Baraza Resort & Spa review

An amazing resort hotel. Very pretty and colourful gardens. Villas very well designed and furnished. Food and facilities world class. Very nice to see male and female staff who were all very well-trained, helpful and polite. Lovely beach setting.

Two minor criticisms - the second bedroom in the two bedroom villas was small and whilst suitable for two young children, was too small to be used as a triple. Secondly, I presume the grounds were irrigated with recycled water as there was a very unpleasant odour every evening around the hotel.
