Awsome hotel, excellent service, excellent food, very nice beach, excellent bars with superb service, rooms were top notch, swiming pools were awsome, they have a nature trail within the hotel, which is quite impressive, well maintained compound despite its humongous size. you definately get more than what you pay for.

Hotel's Favorite
We had booked to stay at this hotel in April this year but then had to cancel due to Covid-19 lockdowns in Kenya. When lockdowns were lifted we rebooked our holiday after getting detailed information on what the hotel was doing to make the hotel safe for the guests during the pandemic. It was well worth it. Being one of their first guests after reopening, we were lucky to have very few other guests so it was very easy to social distance from other guests. I believe this was intentional so that the hotel could learn from a few guests how to deal with their business during the pandemic. This also meant we had the beautiful Diani beach almost all to ourselves! The staff took wearing of masks, taking of temperature before entering the restaurant and hand washing or sanitizing very seriously which we appreciated. There was no slacking on these measures for the week we were there. Also for room cleaning we had the flexibility of choosing if and when we wanted it. There were no buffets as these had been replaced by table service. This worked well in the beginning but after a few days when a few more guests had checked in, we noticed the meals took a bit longer to arrive. This may be something they have to work on. But having said that, the food quality was very good! We did not utilize the kids club by choice though the animation team were ready for it if we had wanted to for our kids. We have been at this hotel before and it was well worth going back to it again. We really appreciated the friendliness and quality of service and the measures the hotel had taken to make our stay safe during the pandemic.

Dear Guest, Warm greetings from the Baobab Beach Resort and Spa. Thank you for sharing this glowing review of our resort and for your incredible comments about our excellent facility. Whilst most guests leave favourable comments about our beautiful beach, few take the time to mention our beautifully decorated parks with all the monkeys as you have done. Our gardens are really something that sets us apart from other resorts here in Diani. Thank you for sharing this with fellow travellers. We are happy to hear your positive feedback regarding our well ventilated spacious rooms, We are sure most visitors to Diani will agree that the Baobab is still a worthwhile and remarkable place to visit - largely because of our remote and pristine location. Looking forward to welcoming you to Diani and back to our resort. Safe travels! Kind Regards, Kennedy Uduny Public Relations Executive marketing@baobab-beach-resort.com Tel: +254 725 777 025
