We stayed here between Christmas and New Year and it was OK but really nothing special. Breakfast was especially disappointing and having looked at the menu for the evening meal, we went out to eat. Hardly any service around the pool and unlike the beaches further down the coast the beach area outside the hotel was terrible and had not... More

The hotel itself is located in a nice peace area on the beach by Indian ocean. We spent there 10 days in July-low season time. First 5 days we were the only guests, so it´s difficult to value the food as they only cooked for us. The staff is very friendly and polite. We had a lot of talk together.... More

This was a perfect place to spend the weekend. There is personalized service and the best part is that the chef was out of this world preparing different cuisines. The rooms are well maintained and so is the whole place,its a beautiful garden hotel overlooking the white sandy beaches of the Indian ocean. I will definitely head back as the... More

Wanted a weekend getaway so decided to head to Baobab Sea Lodge. Check in to the hotel was quick and easy. The rooms needed some major interior decor. Air conditioning in the room kept on switching on and off like as if they were on some timer. Sometimes it would just switch off and then you would have to switch... More

After a sad start to our stay in Kalifi Kenya we ended up staying here for a week, great staff who did al they could to make us comfortable. Would highly recommend it as a great place to stay..Although pricey it has to be said over the Christmas period.

We just returned from a weekend at Baobab Sea Lodge. This is a small hotel beautifully placed on a quiet, sandy beach. The staff is very attentive. We had very positive interactions with Cliff and Emmanuel at the front desk, both before and during our stay. We don't eat animal products, and the chef did everything possible to modify the...

I've been in Baobab sea Lodge with my husband and 8 months daughter. It's comfortable and placed over the indian ocean, with a wonderfull sandy beach. The buffet restaurant has an international menu, full of things, you will appreciate it! The rooms are some bungalows, some in a small palace, all with makuti roof. The resort has a nice pool,...

My company was conducting business at the hospital in Kilifi just a few minutes from the Bayobab. Typically our comapny books the Mnarani when in the area, but due to full booking our company placed us at the Bayobab, and I'm very happy with the week I had there! I do have to say from the business traveler's perspective, I... More

From a locals perspective Baobab Lodge is one of those hotels that are great if you don't like crowds, it's our second visit and it's a public holiday weekend and the hotel is quiet- which may mean it's not on the top 10 which is true! The hotel is clean, has air-conditioned rooms that are a nice size for families,... More

This is a very nice boutique hotel, well-situated on the Indian Ocean with very friendly and efficient staff. The food was very nice and service excellent. Our room was very clean with attentive staff. Happy to recommend this hotel which has around 30 lodges. It is only a short Tuk-tuk run from Kilifi itself where you can get most things... More
