An undiscovered gem to the south of the main resort areas, Bijilo Beach is a small and quiet hotel with breathtaking views, situated on an unspoilt stretch of beach.
This family-run hotel attracts many repeat guests year after year, tempted by the tranquil, spacious gardens, welcoming atmosphere and of course the enviable beach location, perfect for a romantic stroll.
The hotel rooms, swimming pool and public areas are well looked after by the Gambian owners who take great pride in their hotel. The airy bedrooms are situated in two-storey buildings within the lush grounds, and these are spacious and well equipped. Their elevated position means you will benefit from a pleasant sea breeze as well as stunning views overlooking the gardens, beach and ocean beyond. In addition we can offer apartments, which have a separate living/dining area providing a more spacious option for long stays or families, with tea and coffee-making facilities.
The Bijilo Beach Hotel has one restaurant with a fantastic terrace looking towards the sea, as well as a rooftop seating area for a pre-dinner drink whilst watching the sun set. The restaurant offers both table d'hôte and an à la carte menu, at a supplement for half board guests. The hotel provides some evening entertainment in the form of local bands and cultural shows; there are now also a few local beach bars and a restaurant next door, plus the lively resort of Kololi, with a number of bars and restaurants, is only a five-minute taxi ride away.
This attractive, family-run hotel would suit couples wishing to relax in peaceful surroundings yet be within easy reach of a livelier resort. It is also a good choice for groups with its impressive conference facilities, which can also be used as a wedding venue with stunning views. Due to its popularity with both British and Scandinavian clients plus the relatively small number of rooms, we recommend booking early.
