Featuring amongst the most luxurious hotels in The Gambia, and arguably the most striking, Coco Ocean has established itself as one of the most popular places to stay for discerning holiday-makers looking for elegance and exquisite surroundings.


Travel Agent Opinion

"This is, for me, THE hotel in which to unwind and be treated to pampering of the highest level. The intimacy of the spa belies its size, and, with 11 different room categories, Coco Ocean offers something for everyone​."

- Dawn Wilson, Imp Travel

 

What we love

  • The Spa – a world-class centre offering treatments from around the world: Moroccan Hamman, hot stone massage, body polish and scrubs, Asian foot massage…
  • The endless beach stretching in both directions.

 

Good to know

  • If you stay in a Club Villa or Beach House you have exclusive access to the beachfront pool.
  • À la carte dining is included for those on half board.

 

An oasis of luxury in The Gambia

Whitewashed Moorish architecture framed by colourful pink bougainvillea sweep down towards a golden sandy beach – welcome to Coco Ocean Resort & Spa. This impressive hotel offers guests a tranquil oasis whereby you can enjoy beautiful green lawns, a refreshing three-tiered swimming pool, a superb spa and a fantastic stretch of unspoilt coastline. While for many guests, the main attraction of Coco Ocean is the fantastic spa facilities, the hotel’s stunning location on an unspoilt stretch of beach just 2.5 km from the lively resort of Kololi, as well as its extensive choice of unique suites, make this far more than just a spa hotel.

Unsurprisingly a popular choice for repeat customers as well as visiting dignitaries, Coco Ocean’s sophisticated sense of luxury can be found throughout the hotel, with its ornate interiors, imaginative use of colour and light and beautifully elegant variety of guestrooms, all of which boast excellent facilities. Every little feature has been thought out extensively, from the grandeur of the Moroccan-inspired architecture to the subtle positioning of sunloungers.

 

Comfort and rejuvenation await

Set within lush tropical gardens, all the open-plan suites and villas are light and airy, but for added comfort we recommend one of the sumptuous room upgrades. There are four Royal Suites each with its own private plunge pool, with Royal penthouses above (a Royal suite and penthouse can be booked together for larger groups but are self-contained units). The 14 Club villas sit in two rows, with impressive private outside relaxation areas; but for the best location in the hotel try one of the three Beach houses, which are extremely spacious and sit directly on the beachfront. These, along with Club villas and Royal suites, have use of the exclusive, beachfront second pool which is flanked by cabanas for added comfort.

 

The ultimate in relaxation

If you’re in need of a break from relaxing in a private cabana along Bijilo Beach, head to the hotel’s renowned spa where you can experience a whole host of treatments. A place where you can completely relax and rejuvenate, Coco Ocean's impressive 1800sq metre adult-only spa boasts a serene and calming atmosphere throughout, where subtle scents of aromatherapy linger in the air. A steam room, sauna, fitness room and ice plunge pool are also available for guests to use at your leisure, and it’s here that you will discover the Thalassotherapy pool. Remember, Gambia Experience guests receive a 10% discount on all full priced individual treatments, so don’t miss out!

Guests can enjoy a choice of restaurants on-site, and the resort of Kololi offers further options only a five-minute taxi ride from the hotel. Tempting menus featuring Thai, international and traditional African cuisine can be sampled in either the Courtyard or Coco Beach restaurants, one offering à la carte breakfasts and al fresco dining with a backdrop of illuminated fountains and soft music, the other providing beachfront lunches with an African theme by night. Fresh ingredients are used wherever possible, many from the hotel’s own gardens, while the international chefs strive to create imaginative and memorable meals for Coco’s guests.

About the Local Area (Bijilo)

The beauty of Bijilo is there is very little here! Situated about five minutes south of Kololi there are as yet no restaurants or nightclubs to disturb the peace, just a couple of beach bars on a long stretch of beach with very few people on it.

Beaches

This is a wonderfully unspoilt, long stretch of sand with only a couple of smaller hotels here and beach bars with the odd fruit seller - perfect for a relaxing day.

Spa Facilities Information

The Coco Ocean Spa provides a full range of professional treatments in nine luxurious treatment rooms overlooking the beach in Bijilo, The Gambia.

There are also double massage beds, Hammam, sauna, ice cold plunge pool, wet and dry body treatment area. The Health & Awareness Centre offers gym, Pilates, yoga and a relaxation area. The spa opened in December 2008 and has received excellent reviews from clients, and several journalists from national newspapers and lifestyle magazines have also written positive accounts of their experiences at the Coco Ocean. Therapists are trained to a high standard to ensure you return from your holiday completely refreshed with a feeling of total well being. The treatments incorporate essences of plants, aromas of healing flowers, elements of the ocean and Aloe vera plants grown on the premises – all blended from traditional recipes into modern day beauty rituals. With all treatments you will be provided with a bathrobe, slippers, shower cap and towels.

Treatments can either be booked directly with the Spa on arrival in The Gambia or we can prebook treatments in advance. Please note the details and prices may be subject to change.
