Blog > Introducing Tamala Beach and Kalimba Beach Resorts

We're delighted to welcome quality sister hotels, Tamala Beach Resort and Kalimba Beach Resort, to further enhance our Gambia programme this winter.

At The Gambia Experience, we believe that matching the correct accommodation to an individual's needs, is just as important as choosing the right destination. Whether you prefer the pool or the beach, relaxing with a book or getting out and about, we're not only constantly looking for exciting new properties which offer the facilities our customers are looking for, but also meet the high levels of customer service we set as standard.

The Tamala Beach and Kalimba Beach resorts are located next door to each other alongside the golden sands of South Kotu, and offer an all-inclusive, adult-only haven.

Kalimba Beach Resort

Kalimba Beach is the newer of the two, having recently opened in December 2019, but both effortlessly blend modern décor and calming colours with an African twist.

The swimming pools are a prime feature in these hotels with a limited number of swim-up rooms available in both properties.

There are a range of daytime activities and Tamala Beach boasts a superb spa and gym, offering a range of treatments and fitness classes for its guests. If the activities sound too much, there are ample spots to relax and soak up the African sun – we especially like the chilled atmosphere in the hammock and bean bag area on the beach. Guests at Kalimba are welcome to use the facilities and beachside restaurant at Tamala Beach Resort.

The hotel buffets offer a range of different cuisines, with the live cooking enhancing the dining experience. There are three bars across the two hotels and the outside terraces are perfect for enjoying a cool drink during the warm African evenings. Both hotels offer regular evening entertainment and live music.
