What Our Customers Say

Perfect for a luxury and exclusive get away

Amazing resort with amazing staff. From start to finish it was an unforgettable experience. Super friendly staff with 24/7 premium service. It is hard to stay away from all the food and great cocktails. The quality and selection of food and beverages is top notch. Even though it was the end of the rainy season with on and off occasional showers the temperature was always nice.

Perfect resort for a relaxing post Safari holiday!

We were a group of six that came to the Baraza Resort after our Tanzanian Safari.

Angela made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived at the Baraza Resort, giving us a tour of the beautifully groomed property as well as each of our Beachfront Villas. The villa was very spacious, well appointed, complete with a private plunge pool and dedicated loungers at the beach.

My experience at Baraza Resort & Spa in Zanzibar was nothing short of extraordinary. My husband and I came to Zanzibar for the first time to celebrate our birthdays and I must say it was worth the 20-plus hours of flight time

The Abeid Amani Karume Airport, Zanzibar (IATA CODE = ZNZ)

If you are booking through a travel agent, they may have ground services in Zanzibar available to meet you alternatively please let us know and we will make these arrangements at an extra fee.

Yes, all of our award winning properties are located right in front of a white sandy beach

Similar to majority of the "Swahili Coast" our beaches are tidal and the tide timings change with each season. (you may google exact high and low tide timings for your specific stay with us) Low tide is a wonderful opportunity to take a free guided "Reef Safari" and discover some of our wonderful marine life.
