Excellent villa and very friendly staff. Recommend
The pool in the villa should be bigger
The architecture was unique and set a very relaxing ambience. The staff were there to tend to everything you could ask for. The food varied between buffet lunches and set menu dinners - all of which were varied and imaginative. The spa was by some margin the most impressive one we had experienced at any hotel. Perfect for couples.
The on-site shop is incredibly expensive: if you are looking for something local pick it up at a market. Perhaps worth noting that the airport and the main market town on the island are just over an hour drive away.
What a magnificent resort. The service, the food, the accommodation - all excellent. The beach is wonderful; as it the 'beach area' on the property itself. If there was a criticism it would be that the photos do not do the property justice! Please update your photos... What an exceptional property; well worth a visit!
The pool, the beach and the spa!
1. We were at the last room (24) far away from everything, when we asked to change because the hotel was not full, they said no. 2. We asked the reception to make a phone call to our credit card, we waited for 30 minutes at the room and they never did. I guess they forgot. 3. The first day we arrived we went to the sports center to ask for snorkel, they said that we could do it any day at midday. As we were at Baraza only 3 days we thought: today (first day) or our last day. We approach the sports office 1.5hs before the excursión started and they said it was too late. We were angry because they did not say we needed to confirm so much in advanced, but ok, decided to book for our last day. Unfortunately, the called us and say that there were a lot of jelly fish in the lagoon, they canceled our snorkel excursion
Beautiful resort, extremely easy on the eye. Great location, quiet area with not many tourists. What sets Baraza apart from other places is the service. I’ve stayed all over the world in 5 star establishments, this place ranks as the best I’ve been to. We arrived very early on our day of check in, Evelyn was kind enough to check us in to our room after just 20 minutes of waiting whilst we were served refreshments upon arrival. Evelyn and Garieb made our stay a pleasure by helping with all our requests, tending to all our activities booked etc. Every time we left the resort for an activity (stone town tour etc) they were even kind enough to see us off and ensure we had refreshments for our trip. Evelyn made sure we weren’t charged for the tray charge the day we ordered room service as my wife was sick and couldn’t make it to dinner. Exceptional attention to each client of the resort is clearly evident and everyone feels as if they are royalty. Garieb was helpful in booking all off- resort activities like fishing etc. Melisa (manager I assume) runs a tight ship and was kind enough to welcome us on arrival. Please thank Evelyn and Garieb for their excellent service and making our stay the best we’ve ever had! Food was amazing , breakfast lunch and dinner were always filled with a variety of options which would suit even the fussiest of palettes. They ask you on arrival if you have any specific dietary requirements so be sure to tell them and they will gladly accommodate your dietary needs. If food is a big part of your holiday, stay here! Even the room service is included in the All Inclusive package and only tray charges are charged. Excellent for the days when you’re too lazy to go off to restaurants and would rather enjoy the gorgeous villas. Could not ask for a better honeymoon, thank you Baraza!
Nothing, everything was perfect.
Nestled on the beach, this Dongwe property is within 9 mi (15 km) of Paje Beach, Jambiani Beach, and Kuza Cave. Kizimkazi Beach and Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park are also within 25 mi (40 km).
