Baraka Point is…..ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! I can’t begin to describe everything and do it justice…the views, beaches, snorkeling, massages and sunsets. Oh, and did I mention the food?! The chefs prepared meals that looked and tasted like they were out of Bon Appetite and the ambience at dinner was simply stunning. Not one of us was ready to leave on Monday…if it hadn’t been booked we would have stayed longer!
