We have just returned from a week stay at this resort end of June and I would highly recommend this resort. Baobab Beach resort is without a doubt one of the best resorts in Diani Beach. We arrived in Diani Beach after our 4 day Safari in Masai Mara. We flew with Safari Link from Wilson Airport in Nairobi to... More

I should have written this review a long time ago since I was there in February 2012 for my honeymoon. I tried to book a room in the baobab division but unfortunately it was full and I was booked in Meridadi. And it qas even better! ! The room was perfect in every aspect. Neat, clean, had perfect view and... More

My boyfriend and I visited this hotel for a week in early May but the weather let us down. Rain all day and all the restaurants nearby the hotel (out of the resort) were shut due to off-peak season. Staff very attentive and food generally very good. But our timing was off. And the beach boys were INCREDIBLY annoying and... More

The resort was beautiful, well maintained, kept extremely clean and located in beautiful tropical gardens. The staff were truly amazing, everyone would go out of their way to help you whether you tip or not.... More

My wife and I came here on honeymoon and the Baobab was really special. The location is idyllic and the food is absolutely amazing. Much of it is cooked fresh to order. My wife is a vegetarian and had plenty of options during our two week stay. The monkeys are great and provide a lot of entertainment. Boys on the... More

I visited the Baobab Beach resort and Spa on business. I had for a long time wanted to book a holiday at Baobab. The property is huge. With 3 hotels in one, it looks really amazing. The swimming pools are fantastic and pleasing to the eye. If staying at Baobab, it is possible to use the pools and restaurants at... More

Everything you read about the monkeys is true. Follow all the instructions about the monkeys. They will steal your food, but there are guards always On the watch armed with catapults. The pros: 1)Beautiful rooms I.e the Maridadi wing 2)A few enthusiastic employees especially the porters, Linda,Rama and Dorcas at the Maridadi hotel. The cons: 1)A non existent kids club.... More

We traveled to Diani over Easter this year (2014), and my expectations of Baobab Beach Resort & Spa were fulfilled from the moment we entered the gate. The service was fantastic, they had so many activities for all the guests, all ages. The hotel is clean and the staff were very friendly. They have a number of pools that can... More

Stayed here for a week and found it a perfect place to unwind after a long, weary, but intensely rewarding safari. The journey here involves the ferry crossing at Mombasa and can be a little daunting but, after the long drive, witnessing a lot of poverty and depression, you will eventually hit the tourist region of Diani beach. The resort... More
