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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
