Senegambia Beach Hotel
Senegambia Beach is a hotel on Kololi Beach in The Gambia, set in 20 acres of mature tropical gardens. There are one and two-storey buildings scattered around the grounds. Guests share the gardens with monkeys, squirrels and a variety of birds. The hotel is in a popular area for tourists. There are two main swimming pools, one by the main hotel building and the other close to the beach, with views of the sea. The beachside pool has a bar with a traditional thatched roof, and there are two smaller pools for children. The sun terraces have plenty of places to relax and are dotted with mature tropical trees. Between the hotel and the sea, steps lead to a narrow stretch of sand that belongs to the hotel, where you can sunbathe. You can also take a short stroll towards some of the larger beaches in the area. The hotel has three restaurants; one buffet and two à la carte. There is seating indoors, or you can dine on one of the outdoor terraces, either overlooking the sea or the gardens. There is a small collection of shops where you can buy souvenirs and swimwear, and you'll also find a gallery of African art on the floor above the reception area. The hotel is on the edge of Kololi, a popular resort with places to eat, drink and shop. Bijilo National Park, a nature reserve on the coast, is just south of the hotel. Banjul, the capital, is a short drive away.
Senegambia Beach leads to the sandy beach. You can relax on the hotel's own stretch or, if you want to swim, there's a choice of beaches around Kololi, where you'll also find plenty of bars. The hotel is at the end of the popular Senegambia Road, with lots of places to eat and shop. This area is also home to a craft market and shopping mall. The beachside woodland reserve, Bijilo Forest Park, is nearby, and is a well known area for bird watching. Banjul, the capital of The Gambia, is 17km from the hotel.
