This hotel is bookable online via our sister website, The Senegal Experience.

This attractive, friendly hotel is fantastic for both families and couples looking for well priced accommodation with a good range of facilities. Its pretty African style bungalows are dotted throughout the colourful gardens in a beautiful beachfront location within easy reach of the resort centre.

The unique spiral shaped pool is definitely a focal point of the hotel – shaded sun beds surround it and the pool bar serves drinks and snacks all day to keep guests refreshed. Out of the sun, the lounge, which is adjacent to the pool area, offers books, board games and satellite television to occupy restless sun worshippers and you’ll also find an Internet area and gift shop selling souvenirs and displaying artwork from local Senegalese artists.

For dining, the hotel restaurant spills out onto the pool terrace, offering a variety of local Senegalese and European dishes.

Another striking feature of the Hotel Royam are the extensive lawns, bordered by colourful shrubs and bougainvillea, which lead down to the coconut tree lined sandy beach that’s reserved for hotel guests. Here, relax on the white sands or take advantage of the various water sports on offer.

Unwind further at the hotel’s beauty salon situated close to the beach where, in cool and airy studios you can enjoy a therapeutic massage or one of the many beauty treatments on offer.

About the Local Area (Saly)

The resort of Saly is located on the “Petite Côte”, approximately 80 kilometres south of Dakar and 65 kilometres north of the Sine Saloum Delta. Saly is an ideal holiday destination that has long been popular with French and Belgian tourists and as such has a very established feel, with its variety of hotels, palm-fringed sandy beaches, calm clear waters, bars,restaurants, shops and a wide range of activities.

The smaller resort of La Somone is only a short drive from Saly and enjoys an idyllic location beside a stunning lagoon, home to the Réserve de la Somone, a birdwatcher’s paradise. Nearby you can also visit the Bandia Nature Reserve, a small but perfectly formed wildlife park where you can see roaming freely: giraffe,rhino, zebra, ostrich, antelope, buffalo, bush pigs, impala and many other birds and animals. For the more active, both Saly and La Somone have several excellent water sports centres offering a range of activities such as jet-skis, water-skiing, catamarans, kayaks and windsurfing, and several excellent fishing clubs offering world-class deep sea fishing. Quad and buggy tours or horse treks are available in and around the resorts and Saly is home to an attractive 18-hole golf course as well as the Accrobaobab Adventure Park, where you can climb, swing and slide on a series of nets and ropes amongst the baobab trees.
