We spent 4 nights in this beautiful place with my family and really enjoyed ! Food ,service , rooms all was good and we had fun. Unfortunately were not lucky with weather and rains but the beach over there is always fantastic and bad weather can't spoil you general feel. We will definitely come back to Baobab

My wife son and I spent our Easter 2014 weekend at Baobab. It was always good to wake up to views of the Indian Ocean. The food was lovely, the staff absolutely friendly and the environment perfect for an enjoyable time.

We went here for our honeymoon in March 2014, it was beautiful and the staff are so helpful. The food was great and a lovely place to stay. We went on Safari but booked it privately through JT Safaris who have an office just up the road from the hotel - the safari and service was excellent. I would recommend... More

We stayed at the Baobab for two weeks starting the 18th March 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our room was in the Madridabi part of the hotel with a pool, restaurant and bar within a few yards of us. We had a pool view and could see down to the beach from our balcony. The room was excellent.... More

We stayed at The Baobab from 25th March for two weeks. Upon arrival we checked in to a standard room in the Baobab section of the resort (three sections together running along the beach). I must admit we were not very happy with this room. There was nothing wrong with, but it was basic and quite dark, with very little... More

Just returned from a lovely holiday at the Baobab - really great. Lovely food, very clean, great facilities, fabulous staff etc. Very highly rated. Only downside is the beach boys. They just hassle and hassle and hassle. Really spoils things. I travelled alone and simply was not comfortable going in the beach and I felt I was missing out but... More

Great service, the best experience of complete relax near the Indian Ocean, uplifting water aerobics with the most outstanding coaches, excellent choreography of the shows, unforgettable show of acrobatics, very friendly atmosphere, very tasty food and fresh juices. We loved this journey and the only thing we can regret - the time passes so quickly!

We stayed in January and had spent 8 months looking forward to the holiday and were not disappointed! We booked through Thompson and every single part of the holiday was well organised, including the Dreamliner flight that was fab with lots of leg room. Baobab is just the most wonderful, happy and beautiful place. We stayed in "Baobab" (rather than... More

Will definitely return next year (for the 7th or 8th time, stayed there single, with 1 and this time 3 companions), not only due to the most beautiful location at Diani Beach. The people treat the guests like members of the family, starting at the reception, waiters, cooks, room boy/girl, gardeners, askari ... their friendliness is honest, the rejoice in... More
