Have you ever thought of The Gambia as a luxury holiday destination? Here are 5 steps to a luxury holiday with The Gambia Experience in 2017.

A holiday should always be designed to spoil you, giving you the opportunity to recharge your batteries and indulge in all of life's most soothing experiences. A holiday to The Gambia will allow you to soak up a hugely relaxing destination, blessed by a fantastic range of accommodation, great weather and a beautiful coastline.

At The Gambia Experience, we believe everybody should be able to enjoy a slice of luxury during their holidays, that's why we have gone the extra mile to offer those special features that are guaranteed to make your holiday even more rewarding. To give you an idea of what to expect from our great range of luxury holidays to The Gambia, here are five of our most alluring offerings... 


Start your holiday in style

Get the relaxation started early by unwinding in the Gatwick and Banjul airport lounges where you can enjoy a great range of food and drink, as well as numerous amenities. Lounge access is included for those who choose to book our Star Class with Titan Airways, while others can speak to our Reservations team about pre-booking lounges at Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham.


Opt for Star Class

As previously mentioned, opting for Star Class on our Gatwick flights will give you complimentary lounge access at both Gatwick and Banjul, but there's so much more you can enjoy when you turn your back on economy. Star Class also provides you with queue-beating, dedicated check-in, increased luggage allowance, priority boarding, upgraded meal service, superior seating and private airport transfers.

Choose a room with a view

All of our luxury hotels boast beautiful locations, many on the beachfront overlooking the stunning ocean vistas afforded across The Gambia. Ensure you wake up to this breathtaking view every morning by booking a wonderfully designed room which makes the most of the area's picturesque qualities. Leo's Beach Hotel boasts a range of great rooms, with balconies overlooking the hotel's pool and across to the awe-inspiring ocean.


Get the holiday treatment in the spa

You can enjoy spa treatments at several of our hotels in The Gambia, but for many, it is the stunning 1,800sq metre, adult-only spa at Coco Ocean that turns the most heads. Here you can enjoy a range of treatments by specialist therapists, with the likes of a Thalasso pool, hammam, sauna, ice plunge pool, pedicures, manicures and beauty treatments top of the list. What's more, Gambia Experience guests receive a 10% discount on all full priced individual treatments.  


Enjoy some fine dining

Our hotels in The Gambia, particularly among our Luxury Collection, offer a great range of bars and restaurants, serving up countless cuisines and ensuring all guests are fed and watered throughout their trip - The Kairaba alone boasts three restaurants and two bars! However, it is impossible to look beyond the fine dining up for grabs at Ngala Lodge and its remarkable restaurant, headed by British chef Jonathan Groves, offering daily specials which are exquisitely cooked.
