We travelled to Baobab for our 2 week honeymoon in October 2012. We had a wonderful time here. Our room had fabulous views of the Indian Ocean, and although the cheeky monkeys were ever present on our balcony they were comical to watch - we just had to make sure we kept the door locked! The resort is very spacious... More

We booked this holiday through Thompson UK, we also booked the Safari through them. On arrival to the resort we were given drinks to refresh after such a long flight and drive from the airport is about 1 1/2 hours. The resort and grounds are very well maintained, my favourite area was the infinity pool, which looks amazing. The drinks... More

We stayed at the Baobab Hotel on an all inclusive basis for 6 nights at end of August, beginning of September following a trip to the Masai Mara. The hotel was well managed and the rooms clean and comfortable although we did have to ask for our mattress to be changed as the original one was rock hard. However the... More

You can book many room categries: Baobab regular and deluxe rooms, Maridadi superior and deluxe and Kole Kole superior and deluxe. We had booked a Maridadi deluxe room, the most expensive one to be sure to get a decent room not on the ground floor with some sea view. When we arrived the room they showed us was actually built...

Pros: My friends suggested this place since they had been there three times. The pick up service from the airpot was good with Yusuf the driver making as feel comfortable. The place being situated on a vast piece of land offers a large walking space in between the trees with monkeys jumping from one tree to another. The fact that... More

... Baobab is one of few I visited twice. First time, about a year ago I stayed in the cottage, and recently I lodged in a standard room. Certainly there is a difference, but I am still not convinced that its worth the surcharge. The room was big enough with two large comfortable beds, a flat screen TV and a... More

We stayed in the Kole Kole wing of this resort in early August 2014. My wife, 9 year old son and myself really enjoyed the hotel and would like to return. Before we departed from Germany, we seriously considered cancelling our booking because of all the reports about violence at the coast in Kenya. In the end, we decided to... More

Luckily our room was an upgrade - not requested but certainly appreciated; huge with two double beds and a massive bathroom with a shower that would take a football team (all together - not one at a time!).When we went on Safari we paid to keep the same room as some rooms smaller and less attractive. On the ground floor... More

We stayed at the hotel in September 2013 for one week with my partner for our anniversary and we loved it! This was our second stay at the hotel. The hotel was well kept and we liked our room (sea facing cottage) - clean, spacious and very comfortable. The hotel is big and guests have access to the other 2... More
