Spent a long weekend here with friends, and had great time. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The staff were wonderful, the food was also very good (fresh & varieties)! The swimming pool is so big and the night shows were awesome. This place is cool, the room balcony is big with ocean view. We enjoyed walking to the... More

We came here after spending lovely four days in Kole Kole. Since it is the same property we thought of trying Baobab which appeared much more vibrant. The initial day was a disaster. We were given rooms 103 and 109. 103 was difficult to open and impossible to close - we had monkeys come in even though the door was... More

All I can say is fabulous from start to finish! Amazing staff and beautiful setting! Very close to the wild life too, could not fault this place at all. Has its own beach where you can snorkel and dive saw some beautiful fish! Would definitely make a return trip

Diani beach is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Resort is right extensions to that place, very clean very warm and extremely dedicated team. To give you a context, when we arrived on late plane (about 5h late) guys at the reception didn't really wanted talk to us, until we go and eat something! Whilst we were... More

We stayed at Baobab beach resort in June this year. Everything was very good, especially the swimming pool with the nice view over the sea. Good food and service. The rooms in Baobab are ok, but like some mention the rooms in Maridadi and Kolekole is better. We chose Baobab because we got a very good price and we think... More

Lovely place. 3 big swimming pool areas, very clean with great views of the sea. A lot of activities: dancing, singing, aerobic. I loved every Thursday shows in the amphitheater. All inclusive: good food, great selection of dishes, theme nights with different type of cuisines. A la carte restaurant excellent, I had lobster and it was delicious. Rooms spacious, african,...

I was here with some friends and we had such a good time. The rooms are well maintained and clean, the resort aesthetics are well done and the restaurant is so spacious and we'll planned out. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food was good.

Just got back from a 4-night stay at The Baobab. The staff was friendly right from the gate. The resort is beautiful. There are actually 3 resorts: The Baobab, The Kolekole, and Maridadi, with shared resources and facilities. There are three pools: the infinity pool at Kolekole, the Tapa Tapa pool at The Baobab, and the waterfall pool on the... More

Lovely hotel overlooking diani beach. Rooms very well appointed and clean. Great pool that seens to disappear into the ocean. Plenty of sunbeds around the pool and dotted around the lovely grounds which are full of trees and flowering shrubs, so plenty of shade. Staff very friendly and helpful. The natural beach itself is a piece of paradise, perfect white... More
