Slice of heaven on Diani Beach

I stayed at Baobab by myself and felt so well looked after. The staff are friendly and helpful and ensured I always had everything I needed. The facilities are great and the beach is right there. The room was quiet and spacious. The food is delicious and in abundant supply and there is much variety. I had an incredible stay and would highly recommend Baobab to others and hope to return one day soon! The only thing I'd highlight for others planning a trip is that Mombasa Airport is a lot further than Ukunda so if you can swing it, fly into Ukunda instead (that's what I'll be doing next time!). Having said that, the resort will transfer to either!

Awesome Experience

We had a fantastic experience at baobab. The staff are kind and friendly.. they kept checking on us. Spacious rooms on the kolekole side. The daily evening shows at the amphitheatre were excellent. Infinity pool great. Things that will definitely bring me back; Infinity pool, evening shows, friendly chefs & staff, the beach. However, consider more engaging activities for the kids club. Happy guests.
