Where to stay

In November 2023, my husband and I were looking for a last minute warm weather getaway from New York, and we discovered Baoase. It was an easy four-and-a-half hour flight from JFK and the resort is only 20 minutes from the airport. Due to the last minute nature of our trip, the only accommodation option we had was the Superior Beachfront Pool Suite and wow! This may have been one of the largest hotel/resort rooms I've ever stayed in and was filled with surprise and delight moments. The entire vibe was a tropical oasis and the room itself was spacious, but the standout features were definitely the private infinity edge pool and the private beach with direct ocean access. There's nothing like jumping right into the ocean when you wake up right from your own hotel room!

Every day there was a delivery of a unique fruit to our room (passionfruit, rambutuns, etc.) with an explanation of what it was and how to eat it. Rooms came stocked with Nespresso machines and a bunch of complimentary snacks like wasabi peas, trail mix and chocolates. There was also complimentary drinks in the mini bar such as water, iced teas and beer.

At the resort you have the option of an all-inclusive meal plan or you can dine a la carte, which is what we did. Our breakfast was included in our rate which allowed us to choose anything we liked off of the breakfast menu along with an enormous buffet, offering fresh squeezed juices, pastries, fruits, yogurt and more. We enjoyed most of our lunches while laying out on the beach and the staff even made us a pizza one day (an off the menu request). Dinners on the beach are either off the menu for that evening or certain nights they have special themed dining such as a Caribbean BBQ night or an Italian or Asian night where there is a set pre-fixe menu, but you're always welcome to order from the regular menu if you choose. There is a small (but still had a ton of equipment) gym just outside the front of the resort across the street for guests and you can book personal training sessions if you like.

We left the resort for dinner in town two nights as we wanted to explore the island a bit and the resort will set up a taxi to take you wherever you want to go and bring you back to the resort after. We didn't take advantage of the many excursions, activities or yachts that the resort offers, but there is definitely plenty to do if you want to stay active or leave the property for the day, even just for a sunset boat ride. While the prices (for the room we had) are aligned with a five-star resort, there were times where the service felt four star, although it may just be that us New Yorkers are used to fast paced service and immediate results. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend for a 3-5 night couples escape.

Need to Know

This is the perfect place for a romantic couples getaway and could also be a great option for a Caribbean honeymoon. The resort is quite small (23 rooms), but would also be an amazing place for a destination wedding takeover.
