The staff at Baraza also went over and above to make sure that our time there was relaxing and enjoyable. In particular, the beach lunch was a wonderful treat. The experience at Baraza was a great taste of luxury after “roughing it” on safari.

Baraza was fantastic. The level of service was outstanding as was the food, accommodation and spa . I cannot fault it.

Baraza was lovely, however the service was very impersonal and unhelpful at times. We wanted to have supper in our room one evening and there was a tray charge, also on our last night we requested a table outside which they weren't able to accommodate for us. They told us that housekeeping had lost the keys to our room and so had to borrow ours, which made us feel a bit nervous at night, being quite exposed on the beachfront.

Beautiful resort; great food; professional staff. Excellent place to unwind after a rather busy 10 days of safari. A definite attraction is the low density of guests; this is a very quite place. Dinner the first night included a live local band and we danced to African music! If there is a minus to this resort it is the beach it is the beach. Don’t get me wrong, the beach is beautiful for walking and is very quite. But I wanted to swim and body surf, something that is not so good here. Having said that, I have no regrets to 2 nights here

Brilliant lodge, really nice friendly staff and again the food was fantastic. Our butler Amani, couldn't do enough for us. Stunning setting and the activities manager helpful with arranging canoeing/SUP'ing and an evening sunset sail. We were lucky in that only 1/2 other rooms where occupied when were there. While we were all inclusive, it would have been nice to know what was included and what wasn't drinks wise. It was all a little vague what drinks were included and what we would have to pay for. Although, on check out they only charged us for 2 cocktails and I think we had had about 12!

Xanadu is a really gorgeous resort on an even more gorgeous stretch of beach. The resort is small in size, but the six villas are tucked in lush gardens and ours (Kimwondo) had plenty of privacy. Kimwondo is also incredibly designed inside and out. I wasn't sure whether to marvel at it for four days or play it cool. The bedroom is well-planned, appointed, and decorated. The bathroom is absolutely massive. We were a few steps to the pool and restaurant which is stunning. The tables were always nicely set and the couches or lounge chairs offered options for relaxation and always had new towels. The resort cat Sophie sometimes hogged the couch, but she was nice so it's okay. The oceanfront of the Xanadu property isn't large but there are no resorts to either side of Xanadu (or for quite a ways that we could tell) so it was like having a huge, long, beautiful beach to ourselves, perfect to have a drink while walking in the evening. There was always a minimum of two people waiting to take care of our every need. One was our personal butler, Doto. Doto taught us plenty of Swahili during our stay and was an all-around nice guy. The breakfast menu was the same every day with several options to choose from and we certainly got our fill of eggs and bacon (which we consumed as much as we could given its absence in Qatar). We had a choice of two lunch and dinner options daily, Kingfish was a common item. All ingredients were very fresh and the food was lovely. You can eat dinner in the restaurant, or in any part of your villa. I think you can also dine on the beach if you want. One night was a seafood buffet (by buffet it was served family style for just your party) and that was by far the best meal of our four days.
