Absolutely fantastic stress relief!!

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Stayed at Baraza after a safari in the Selous Reserve, Tanzania. The hotel facilities are fantastic, the resort is well laid out with ample privacy while having easy access to all areas. The management team is exceptionally attentive to details and ensures that your stay is a memorable one. The entire staff is keenly intent on providing the best service to the guests. The two bedroom garden villa was spacious, tastefully decorated and well equipped, the patio area was well maintained and the plunge pool was a welcomed treat. The food was outstanding, the breakfast and lunch buffets had ample scrumptious choices. During the four night stay there were two sit down meals which were absolutely splendid, the other two nights we had buffets which again contained an abundant and appetizing variety of foods for every taste. The wine selection was very good and included Italian Prosecco for breakfast mimosas as well for lunch and dinners. The wine and spirits selections were very good. The night time entertainment was very enjoyable. Although one cannot swim all day due to the tides, you are able to explore the shore line (reef shoes provided by the hotel) during low and swim enjoyably during high tide. You will not be disappointed!!

A luxury location

timisoara

After a week safari in wonderful parks of Tanzania we chose to relieve ourselves for another week in this wonderful resort. A hotel with a great design, a welcoming atmosphere and with two managers who make every effort that all customers feel perfectly. Thank you once again Natalie and Sergie for all your endeavors to make us forget the incident on arrival (which had nothing to do with you). We stayed in a one bedroom villa which is very beautiful arranged. I would be appreciated if we had a coffee machine in the room, regard to the level of the hotel but this is.....Africa. However the 6 days spent in this resort were pleasant thanks to the managers that I mentioned above and to the Kalei - Kenyan manager of the restaurants. I have to mention that the food was very good. But also I should mention that they have a very different concept of all inclusive. In fact is a kind of full board with water and other cheap drinks included, which didn't affect me too much, but by comparing with the services at the Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti remains much room for better!!! Any way...the only truly sadness was that we could not swimm in the ocean only early in the morning or after 5 p.m. due to the low tide. It happens to all the resorts which are located in the eastern part of island. If you want to swim all the time choose a hotel located in the northern part of the island.
