Kombo Beach Hotel is a warm and welcoming property with a magnificent setting along Kotu Beach. Friendly staff and incredible evening entertainment are the highlights here!

1. The glorious beach setting

Kombo Beach Hotel, situated along the stunning golden sand shoreline of Kotu Beach, where local women sell fruit juices and Gambian men ride horses in the shallows of the waves. Dotted about are palm trees, the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sounds of the ocean as you read your book or sip your fresh fruit juice! 

2. Evening entertainment

Each night in front of the hotel’s restaurant, local men and women perform cultural dances and songs whilst playing the drums and traditional Gambian instruments, creating a wonderful atmosphere whilst you eat. Enjoy a refreshing after-dinner cocktail at the hotel’s bar whilst you listen to the sounds of the waves in the background. Each night the entertainment varies, ensuring that you have a memorable stay. Why not get up and enjoy a dance yourself?


3. The friendly staff

Service at Kombo Beach is second-to-none. From the moment your transfer drops you at the hotel you're greeted with nothing but smiles, a refreshing cool towel and an envelope with your room key and other information needed for your stay. Porters will bring your luggage to your room for you, so simply relax and take in your surroundings. Should you require any help during your stay, the reception staff are always willing to assist and will go to great lengths to ensure you are happy with your room, food and everything else! 


4. Location

Kombo is set in the heart of Kotu, a small yet charming resort that is quieter than Kololi but still packed with character. Next to the hotel is a fabulous craft market, filled with vibrant colours and wonderful handmade souvenirs to take back home to remember your time in The Gambia. There are other nearby hotels which have restaurants that are open to guests, as well as beach bars and a small selection of restaurants. As with many hotels, there is a taxi rank outside Kombo Beach and should you wish to explore further, you can do so!

5. The fabulous food

When it comes to the food at Kombo Beach Hotel, you are spoilt for choice! From the fantastic buffet breakfast with delicious made-to-order omelettes and waffles to the themed evening buffets. There is something to suit all tastes, and combined with friendly service from the hotel staff you will find yourself having an excellent meal night after night! The hotel has two great restaurants: Kudula, under a canopy or around the pool, and The Brasserie where you will find a warm atmosphere in which to enjoy your evening meal. And don’t forget Barracuda beach restaurant, for casual all-day dining by the beach.
