My husband and I, and our 1 year old son holidayed at Baobab Beach Resort and truly enjoyed the experience. The hotel is located at the shores of Diani beach, Kenya's prime beach, and offers beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. The rooms are so breezy and cosy. Travelling with a baby is always a nerve wrecking/ exhausting experience but... More

My wife and I took a three day trip to The Baobab from Nairobi. The resort is large, beautifully appointed and clean. The food buffet was good , with particularly delicious fish. My only complaint was the last night we were there there was an "African themed night". I know that the hotel caters to a mostly older , European... More

Visited Baobab last month (Jan 2015) and it was simply amazing. The rooms were clean and very well-maintained. There was a wide variety of food to pick from, and it being an all-inclusive resort meant we could always have a glass of juice as we relaxed by the pool. There being 3 resorts with no restrictions of where to spend... More

My family and i visited this hotel in December 2014 for 6 nights. I must say that this is the best ALL INCLUSIVE HOTEL i have ever visited. Breakfast is to die for and the all the other meals are superb to say the least. Food was flowing and at no time would you find any serving dish empty. The... More

This was my second stay at the Baobab Beach Resort in Diani on business. It is located in Ukunda on the south coast. Getting here can be a rather daunting task. If travelling by flight you might want to take a flight that lands in Ukunda airstrip. Otherwise if you land in Mombasa you will have to cross the ferry... More

Baobab is an awesome hotel with 3 different resorts combined into one, which is quite unique as you can choose your type of environment to make your stay most enjoyable. With 5 swimming pools to choose from you can either have a quiet time or join in the action if you fancy a buzzing environment. There is lots to do... More

The setting is very nice with plenty of quiet spots to relax, although most of the resort is set above the beach rather than at the same level. Service is OK unless you want something specific done - such as repairs to a sink or moving room - in which case it is definitely below par and it is necessary... More

A bit late i know but we had a great time at Baobab during the summer of 2013. They were very supportive and provided great vegan food for us. They also responded very professionally to any issue we raised. They also helped setup great safari and boating trips. A great hotel to stay at couldn't recommend more highly. They also... More
