We returned yesterday from eight wonderful days at Baraza Resort. We have two young girls aged 3 & 5 and the staff went out of their way to make them welcome and ensure they got what they needed. I have rated everything highly about our stay but i would give special mention to the staff who were exceptional. From Daniel...

This is a beautiful resort with excellent management and restaurant staff. We were welcomed with an evening cocktail reception with the resort owners who are very welcoming and so down to earth! The resort manager is also lovely, always willing to help. The drinks were great and food was nice and the restaurant manager Kalaei and staff were all so...

This was one of the top resorts that I have visited but the first of its kind in this part of the world. Attentive staff, amazing rooms and facilities and some of the nicest staff I have come across. The beach is not very usable with young children but our kids were more than happy to spend the entire day...

We were amazed by the size and decoration of our villa (14), which is purportedly "ocean view" - just about true! However, the accommodation is extremely impressive and comfortably arranged. You could live in a place this size! The plunge pool was enjoyable, although we did express the opinion that at number 14 there was a need for a sun...

Beautifully maintained property with service that was very attentive but unobtrusive. This is a family owned resort and this can be seen in the high standard of service we experienced. We will definitely be returning to stay at this beautiful resort.

We spent a week over New Year's eve and savoured each day. The relatively small number of guests (under 100 even in peak times) and layout of the resort create an induogently relaxes, social ambiance. We were with 2 school ages kids and they quickly found friend and basic fun activities like billiards and beach ball. Small kids were busy...

3 night beach break after 11 days of safari. Beautifully landscaped and breathtakingly designed! The simplicity of the Arabic arches, white flowing curtains everywhere, and the gold/copper accents of fabric, tassels, beaded curtains, lanterns and decorative items done repetitively and excessively create a spectacular, calming and luxurious effect. Sadly, quite a contrast to living conditions seen on the roads in...
