My wife and I came to Baoase Luxury Resort looking for a very special place to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Wow!! We found it here. The staff were very friendly and helpful, accommodating any and all requests when possible, The private beach, the spectacular views, the attention to detail could be seen everywhere we turned - from the Beach Butler to the daily fruit left in our room. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate our anniversary than the romantic gazebo Baoase decorated for our dinner, with a sand text included. Such detail, such luxury, such an amazing resort.
My husband and I spent 5 nights at Baoase during Thanksgiving. We originally booked a suite but were surprised with an upgrade to a gorgeous villa. Everything during our stay was perfect and we were continuously amazed by the loving attention to details, from the welcoming experience at check-in to the care in preparing our room in the morning and before bedtime, to the lovely bites offered by the restaurant throughout the day and left in the room for the guests to enjoy while relaxing in the private areas. The activities make the stay varied and more interesting. We alternated relaxing time at the beach with summiting Mount Christoffel and visiting the National Park, enjoyed a defatigating massage and an underwater sightseeing with Aquafari, spent a day discovering Willemstad by foot and drove around the East side of the island in our rented 2CV. The restaurant is on par with the resort: outstanding. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this resort.
I've already written a review of this idyllic spot. I'm sorry a previous reviewer had so many issues. We had a few minor problems that were addressed immediately. Life is full of problems, but I try to look at the big picture. What I see is a staff that is at your beck and call, knows you by name, along with the general manager who meets you upon arrival, stands outside with you and bids you farewell when you leave and such a pleasing atmosphere that you leave the world behind as you enter the property. I cannot say ONE bad thing about this hotel and staff. Two years ago, we stayed for a week. This year we stayed for 8 nights. I am happy to say I just confirmed our trip for December 2018 for 9 nights. We feel so at home, that when we leave we feel we are leaving a part of our hearts at Baoase. Special thanks to Freddie, who helped make our stay so pleasant, and to Oliver once again, for somehow managing to make everything work. Thank you for the room upgrade which changed our experience exponentially. I don't understand why people say it's not luxurious. It's not the Pierre in Manhattan, but you're in the Caribbean. The resort is spotless clean, the service is impeccable, the rooms are beautiful, the towels are plentiful and soft, the lounge chairs are comfortable and every part of the beach and walkways are raked at least once daily. Read the credo of the hotel. It goes something like where guests are treated as friends and friends are treated like family. Can't say it better than that! Happy New Year to Oliver, Jessie, and Matthew who I expect to see walking around next year and to the entire staff at Baoase for giving us yet another wonderful vacation. Looking so forward to next year!!
Where do I begin...let me note I have no Time in my life to write lengthy reviews- but I have a 5 hour flight home- I’m writing this as room service is turning down our villa at 10pm (I requested them for turn down at 8:30pm). Also, they say you can basically order whatever you want? I’m eating my salad minus the chicken and feta I asked for. Stay tuned.... First day- starving when we got there. ....messed up our lunch order. No big deal. Dined at their 5 Star Restaurant- ordered at 8:15pm. By 9:40pm no food- I was too frustrated and hangry so told them to send food to room. Ate at 10:20 pm- 2 hours after we ordered. Not good. Went to Beach area- flag went up for service- no service. Girls at front desk- awesome. Bartenders- AMAZING. But on the other hand there is such an extensive list of things wrong with the room and the service. This is not a 5 Star hotel. Broken showers, leaky toilet, food wasn’t 5 Star, service was Extremely spotty. Maybe my husband and I are in the minority- but we actually uttered the words “I want to go home” during this trip. In box me if anyone cares to know more about our experience or has questions. Just trying to be honest and not hurt anyone’s feelings (not like this little review would affect Baoase). But we rarely get away being business owners ourselves and this was a total fail. (Especially for the price). Also- don’t waste your money on private transfers and VIP blah blah- it’s a regular taxi and custom’s line is short.
Very nice, relaxing place to celebrate our anniversary. The resort itself is very nice although it is not luxurious as their website advertises BUT the beach front superior suite that we rented is luxury to the max. Very well appointed decor and furnishings, and its private beach and pool are awesome!!! Outdoor rain shower and a huge stone bathtub in a setting where the stars and palm tree branches are your ceiling.
Every detail of this resort has been considered and it is a wonderful experience to be able to stay here. The manager and the staff are all excellent, attentive and thoughtful, can not recommend highly enough. Will definitely return!
Our accommodations were absolutely beautiful. There was a maintenance issue with the room we originally scheduled and the staff contacted us two days before letting us know that our room had been upgraded for the inconvenience. Everyone there is extremely attentive to whatever you may need or want. They even have a pre-questionnaire to find out your expectations. It was common for the staff, Operations Manager, owners son, to stop by and chat with us and ask if there was anything we needed. They do aim to please. One day we even saw the owner, BiBi, hustling to make sure everything was perfect with the decor and one of the beachfront suites. One evening my husband wanted fried chicken. The bartenders spoke with the head chef, and what do you know, they made fried chicken for him. After, the head chef came out to ask how he enjoyed what he had prepared for him. Is that service or what? My husband was also so impressed with the lush landscaping and mentioned it to a gentlemen (Roel) in passing. Come to find out, this gentlemen was the person responsible for all of the landscaping at the resort. He offered to give us a full tour, which was absolutely wonderful and extremely informative. He even gave us a tour of the greenhouse...what a treat that was! I can assure you that nothing is wasted there, we were so impressed! The food was absolutely phenomenal! There was not one item that we didn’t thoroughly enjoy. All of the waitresses and bartenders were delightful and very friendly. They even spent time teaching us Dutch. My husband and I enjoyed every single day of our trip. Last but not least, before leaving the resort I realized that I misplaced my wallet (fortunately my license were in my cell phone wallet). The Operations manager, Freddy, had given us his email address while chatting during our visit, so I contacted him via email on my way to the airport. He responded immediately and told me that he would have the staff look for it ASAP. He responded as soon as the wallet was found and made sure that it was returned to me with everything in it. Oh did I mention that my wedding ring was in the wallet! Yes, that happened. We have told everyone how wonderful our stay was at Baoase because we want All to have the same experience we had. Many have said they will definitely be booking their trip there soon. I can’t say enough about his place, it was a true paradise! You will not regret staying here. It was our best vacation to date.
We purchased a day pass for $50.00 USD each. It was well worth the money. This is a luxury resort, and you are treated like a guest even though we had a day pass. We had beach chairs under a canopy, and they brought ice cold water to us many times during the day. They also provided a fruit and yogurt snack in the morning. This place is absolutely beautiful. Snorkeling was excellent, outside of their jetty that protected the beach. They provided towels and a nice changing room...a spectacular day!
I'm here tonight on my last night at Baoase. Staying here has been wonderful. The setting, the service, the food..... everything has been above and my expectations. Yes, it's expensive. Is it worth it? Yes, I think so. It's not something that I can afford to do very often but if you want to treat yourself to someplace very special, come here. A wonderful place with a wonderful staff. Thank you all for a lovely time!
This resort is just wonderful!! The attention to detail from the minute you arrive you know you are on vacation. Our beachfront suite was outstanding and when you arrive you do not want to leave. The time and thoughtfulness that the people of the resort took to wish you a happy birthday and give you a cake that was amazing! I cannot wait to go back!!
