An absolutely stunning resort set on a beautiful beach. The staff was incredibly hospitable, but one of the most memorable things was the cuisine. The Chef, who hails from Chile, was incredible. Every meal we had was most memorable. I would highly recommend Baraza to anyone looking for a great escape.

Great beaches, wonderful food and amazing property with very few guest capacity. 31 bungalows and maximum around 100 guests, most of whom you only see at dinner time. We will go back for sure.

A family - small chain of hotels, the decor is drop dead gorgeous - every detail works together, creating a feeling both exotic and soothing at the same time. The workmanship is excellent, the gardens beautiful and the staff attentive without being overbearing.
