Baoase has quickly become our favorite destination in the Caribbean. After 4 stays in 4 years, they just keep getting better. The service, the food, the amenities, are all 5 star. We are planning out return now! Until then!

Dear AstriNaarden,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review, it was a pleasure to welcome you at Baoase!

Ad van der Valk and his partner Bibi dreamed up a luxury resort – building their lagoon single-handedly. Bibi handpicked, with the help of other family members, all elements of the interior design for every one of the accommodations – in a warm Balinese style. I will forward your compliments to them!

We hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Kind regards from the entire Baoase team,

My friend and I had ourselves ‘locked down’ in Baoase for the past week. What an amazing experience! We loved the entire package but the sincere friendliness / hospitality of the entire staff and the superb quality of food (michelin star worthy) and wines (special thanks to sommelier Manon) stood out for us. We did not go anywhere in view of the pandemic, but with snorkeling, the gym and the PT sessions offered by the hotel in combination with long lazy breakfasts and lunches, we felt we were short on time. The beach villa we stayed in was just perfect, large with all the amenities you can think of but still with a very intimate, homely feel. Outdoor shower with a view to the palm leaves, the walk-in closet with enough space for a couple of weeks of stuff and the turndown service were the best parts. Wifi throughout the resort is very fast and reliable, a big plus if you need to work. The beach area is lovely, refreshing breeze blowing constantly and also here things are close to perfection with the most comfy beach beds, supply of water throughout the day and your Baoase butler arranging everything you need - special thanks to Collette for your very cheerful can-do attitude and nice chats- including wonderful massages by Esther.

All in all we truly loved this place. Making plans for a return visit already.

Keep up the lovely feeling Team Baoase and stay healthy!

Dear AmsTravelAddict,

Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We are more than happy to hear that you had an amazing experience with us!

As Team Baoase we aim to make every guest experience unforgettable, and we try to make everyone feel at home, away from home. You complimenting us for our friendly and hospitable staff means a lot to us! We will definitely forward your words to our colleagues.

Even tough we find ourselves in unprecedented times, we do believe that Baoase Luxury Resort is a safe haven for people who are looking for a relaxing holiday. Our guests are able to enjoy all our (private) facilities and an additional activity programme for activities (guided snorkeling or scuba diving at our lagoon, yoga, personal training, themed restaurant nights) is set up. It is a pleasure to hear that you have enjoyed this and even felt short in time!

We cannot wait to welcome you again, hopefully in the near future.

Kind regards from the entire Baoase team,

My husband and I booked the Superior Beachfront Pool Suite for our fifteenth anniversary. We'd booked prior to COVID, and had to move our vacation several times - the week before we were to leave for Curacao, the island had to lockdown, and I was so worried that we'd be bored, that we'd not have enough to do as I am not great at being idle.

...Baoase surpassed every single one of my expectations and more. I cannot speak to how wonderful this was for our marriage, so perfect and idyllic. Just a few things:

- The room: The room was breathtaking. Every single part of the room was perfect and romantic, from the beautiful wood, to the intricate care they took designing the closets, and we LOVED the touch of adding Sonos to the rooms. The turndown service was one of our favorite parts of every single night! There was not a single improvement, not a single thing left wanting. The beach and pool for our room were absolutely breathtaking.

- The beach: The location of Baoase on the island was ideal, and their beach is in perfect condition. Secluded but spacious, perfectly landscaped and protected by a wave guard in Bibi Island that left the lagoon as the perfect place to snorkel without fear of strong waves. The surrounding cabanas were beautiful and posh - all we had to do was raise our purple flag and their Beach Staff attended our every need.

- The accommodations: We were a little at a disadvantage due to the current (necessary) COVID restrictions. There could be no massages (which is a shame as the hut was beautiful), and the gym had to be closed. However, the resort was so accommodating - they found safe, socially distanced activities that could be hosted by Carlos, their amazing tour and experience director. You could learn to snorkel or scuba dive, or explore salt flats. We had originally had several days’ worth of outside activities planned prior to the lockdown, and I couldn’t be happier that we were “stuck” on-site to get the true Baoase experience! Next time we go back (there WILL be a next time!), we will only book excursions through Carlos!

- The food: oh my goodness. I left a review for the restaurant that is more detailed, but the food is impeccable. Five star dining in the most idyllic setting imaginable. Everything was so fresh and creative - and the staff not only remembered our allergies and preferences, but had noted what our favorite drink types and dining time was by the end of the week! I don’t know if it is possible to pick out the “best of” features from our stay, as everything was truly perfect - but the food would be one of them!

- The staff: All of the above items are complimented by the most talented, accommodating, and kind staff I have ever experienced. I could individually mention each member happily as a standout, from reservation and front desk staff to security and room service. Dining staff and management were perfect, as were the beach buddies. There is not a single person who we encountered who was anything less than amazing.

I have travelled a great deal over the years, for work and personally. This is the first time my hotel room stopped feeling like a hotel, and felt like a home away from home. This trip was perfect for relaxation, for romance, for pure bliss. I cannot imagine going anywhere else.

Dear 358angied,

Thank you for taking the time to write this extensive and beautiful review. We highly appreciate all your positive words, and we have immediately forwarded these to the Baoase Team!

What a pleasure to hear that you booked a stay with us for your fifteenth anniversary, another congratulations from us. With our separate accommodations and private facilities, we believe our resort is a safe haven for people who are looking for a relaxing holiday or an ‘escape from reality’. Thus, we are very happy that, despite the COVID-19 situation and moving your vacation several times, you were still able to visit us.

Your review covered so many important values that we treasure, we are more than happy to read that we could live up to- or even exceed many of your expectations. The Baoase Team works together as a family to realize this and to provide every guest with a personalized and exclusive experience.

We cannot wait to welcome you back at your home away from home… maybe for your 20th anniversary, or before!?

Kind regards from the entire Baoase team,
