Baraza Resort and Spa

Alan Magill

All of us want to thank you for the recommendation to go to Zanzibar. It was perfect and the best, best way to end the vacation. The Baraza was incredible and we can't recommend it highly enough. There are many luxurious and beautiful resorts, but th e staff at Baraza set it above the rest. They treat their guest with exceptional care and kindness. We couldn't have felt more welcome. The villa was like something out of a fairy tale, the food was amazing at every meal, and the facilities were superb.
