Baraza Resort and Spa is located on the east coast of the island of Zanzibar, 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast. This fully inclusive, boutique resort has fantastic facilities and is perfect for families that are looking for something for both children and parents.

Family owned and operated, this hotel manages to retain charm and character whilst providing all the facilities you would expect from a resort of this kind. A fusion of Arabic, Swahili and Indian design, the main areas are impressive to say the least and the food and service is impeccable.

30 villas are spread around beautiful gardens and are all a stone’s throw away from the beach. Each villa boasts a lounge area, terrace and private plunge pool. There is a mix of one and two bedroom villas as well as a Presidential two-bedroom villa in a prime beachfront position.

The facilities at Baraza are fantastic, especially for those travelling with kids. A large outdoor swimming pool and well-equipped children’s club will keep the children entertained whilst the large Frangipani Spa, lap pool, yoga room, gym and two tennis courts are available for the adults. On the beachfront, a water club and PADI 5 star dive centre offer snorkelling, diving, kite sailing and a range of other water activities.

This is a great choice for children of all ages. The Baraza Kids Club offers a variety of activities and supervised care for children aged 4-12. Meals can be tailored for younger guests and babysitting services are also available.

One of the more high-end properties on the island, Baraza really does have something for everyone. Superb service and great facilities makes this a firm family favourite.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
