I will write about the hotel itself later as the hotel is wonderful but and it is a BIG BUT!! The beach, as white as the sand is, as blue as the sea is, is almost deserted, why? because of the dodgy, VERY INTIMIDATING beach boys. I am here right now - its my third day here, on my first... More

The Baobab Resort is a fantasic complex with lots of things to do. It has great food, friendly, welcoming staff, very clean with friendy monkeys and baboons for the entertainment. Would highly reccommend it to couples, singles or families for long or short stays. The longer the better.

One of the finest all inclusive resorts i have visited. Hotel is very huge with 3 separate hotel wings. Very well landscaped gardens & pools (with one of them an infinity pool) Food & cocktails were a delight. Rooms were excellent & staff were friendly. We wanted to leave at 12noon instead of 10am which they said would attract a... More

We traveled with our two small children and my mom to this fabulous piece of heaven in December for 15 nights and it was pure bliss! The kids club and their entertainers carol, laureen and habiba could not have done more to keep our 8 year fully entertained. My mom enjoyed her daily water aerobics led by the very dynamic... More

I've heard good things about this place but cant even get any rates from them! I inquired through their website a week ago, and still haven't received a response. When I called the hotel today to ask about rates, I got a rude bookings manager who wasn't even willing to give me rates, and insisted that he can't confirm inter-connecting... More

We are a couple who are past holidays with the children and wanted a few days on Safari and the rest of the holiday chilling and lying by the pool. In our second marriage this was in effect our honeymoon. In Kole Kole we found a paradise with service that was second to none. We booked through Thomson at the... More

We have stayed at the Kole Kole twice this year already and plan to return many more times. We live in Nairobi and like to get away to Mombasa and The Baobab Beach Resort offers everything you need to get away from it all. The Kole Kole is part of the resort and when you are staying here you can... More
