My family and I had booked Baobab but utilised all the facilities of all three establishments which had individual themes. The GM and his staff were most accommodating and bent backwards to make our stay a pleasant one. The rooms at Maridadi were extravagant and clean with walk in showers and ample room. The infinity pools were serene and extremely... More

I have travelled to and stayed Baobab Beach Resort three(3) years in a row on business and vacation...to me I think this is the one of the best hotels in the south coast, the concept of 3 hotels in 1 breaks the monotony of the same dining area and amenities. The infinity pool at Kole Kole is just magical as... More

One of the best hotels in south coast. The cuisine is perfect and is on an all inclusive basis not charging on soft drinks and some alcoholic beverages. They have an options for either buffet or a la carte dining. The swimming pool and water sports is above standard. Be careful though if you are to access the hotel via... More

We stayed in the kole kole side, lovely big room that was cleaned well every day. We asked for a sea view room but could only just see the sea through the trees. The hotel was very clean and well maintained, lots of staff around always busy and working hard. As the hotel is made up of 3 parts there... More

Baobab Beach is a 3-Tier Hotel. Rooms at Kole Kole were very comfortable. We had a partial view of the ocean. Please note that wifi only works in the Reception areas (although I'm told they are working on fixing that). Dining was buffet style with a great deal of variety - desserts were rather dull. A very chill place for... More

Overall very nice, several nice pools to choose from. The monkeys are aggresive. Do not leave kids alone if they are eating or carrying food! Beach is excellent, but the vendors on the beach are very persistent.

Stayed on the Kolekole side of the Boabab and loved it. The gardens and trees give shade, coolness and freshness that is not there in most beach hotels of the size of this hotel. My room was perfect and even had cheeky monkeys on the adjacent tree to keep me amused. The dining hall always had a big spread; one... More

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of staying at Baobab Beach Resort to celebrate my sister, Tulsi Patel’s wedding. The whole experience was perfect. The hotel management (led by Mr Sakayo & Mr Charles) provided excellent support through the planning and overseeing of the wedding party from 24th to 26th July. The front desk staff (Patrick, Mzungu, Grace,... More
