We have been fortunate to have been able to travel to some fantastic countries in the world and always stay in 5* accommodation but staying at the Baraza was an experience on its own. We stayed for 12 nights after 2 nights at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, our accommodation at the Baraza was an ocean front villa , the floor space was fantastic far greater than any villa we have previously stayed at. The furnishings were top class and the cleanliness could not be faulted. We were only around 20 steps away from our beach side loungers which were reserved for our villa which were slightly raised above the most awesome beach we have ever seen with water temperatures to die for. This location has now put the Maldives into second place. What really makes the service stand out is their food and beverage manager Mr.Kalei Maweu. This guy is just so quiet and charismatic that his staff jump through hoops for him. It does not matter whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner they are all so attentive without being over the top. You just cannot fault the service which is down to his management skills. By the way the food is also of the highest standard with so much variety for every meal. Lunch and dinner served with good wines and anything else that takes your mood. Would we recommend the Baraza – damn right we would, would we go back – most definitely but next time for longer.
