As though it was taken right out of a movie, this resort is an Arabian splendour. It has elegant dramatic arches that grace its passages in addition to the delicate handmade Swahili furniture and luxurious fabrics that feature in all the rooms and common areas. With services that include, baby sitting, a gym, business centre and tennis court, they make a grand attempt to cater to all their guests’ needs. The hospitality is just as impressive. So, if you want to walk in the shoes of a Sultan for a little bit, the Baraza experience is definitely the one you should try.
My stay in mid-December was, for me, a revelation….from the moment I arrived and was received with such genuine warmth, until leaving – (sobbing could be heard en route to the airport….) My villa was exquisite and felt as though I was residing in my own private paradise. Every part of the villa, from has been designed with you and I in mind. The bed is magnificent, as is the bathroom – big enough to hold a cocktail party in….which I am pretty sure, if you ask, could be arranged. The team (feels more like family) looking after you are magnificent.
We had a very enjoyable stay in our beachfront villa, which was spacious, very well appointed and had a private plunge pool and reserved spot on the beach. Biggest decisions were where to take an afternoon nap – bed, inside day bed, outside daybed or lounge chairs and also which cocktail to enjoy.
Baraza was exactly what the family needed after a great safari. The ocean view villas are stunning, with lots of seating areas inside and out. The food is delicious, varied, and plentiful as are all the drinks. The staff were all really friendly, cheerful, helpful and attentive to any special requests or requirements. The beach and pool areas were lovely to relax around, and the water sports staff again were great, making sure we fitted in all the activities we wanted to do around the tides and days we were there. Thanks to all the staff and managers for a wonderful stay!
