A relaxing base beside the beach

Kombo Beach Hotel promises a fun, atmospheric and comfortable stay beside the ocean in The Gambia. A wonderful base for couples and families alike, this is a lively hotel with good facilities, excellent cuisine and a superb beachfront setting. There are so many elements to the hotel that are guaranteed to please guests of all ages, from the newly enlarged pool and sandy beach, to the daytime activities.

Whatever your interests, you should find something to suit at Kombo Beach Hotel – during the day, join in with pool games or aerobics, take tennis lessons, do a little birdwatching in the tropical gardens with the resident guide, or treat yourself in the beauty salon.

Relax and unwind in your room

The guest rooms have a light and airy feel, decorated using neutral tones. Set within three-storey buildings amongst the gardens, there are a variety of upgrade options including ocean view rooms. The spacious feel of the accommodation is enhanced by the large windows, leading to either a private balcony or patio where you can sit and listen to the ocean. Approximately 50% of rooms are being fully renovated for November 2023 which will be available to our customers at a supplement.

Food, fun and entertainment

When the evening rolls in, enjoy a fruity cocktail, dine buffet-style or à la carte and listen to the entertainment on offer – each evening holds a completely different musical experience, as well as showcasing regular drumming troupes and cultural dancers. The hotel offers two restaurants, one for all-inclusive guests, and the Barracuda snack bar, serving throughout the day and evening, along with two bars. Breakfast and themed buffet dinners are served in the Kudula Restaurant under a canopy or around the pool, while a more intimate atmosphere can be found in the new restaurant with its à la carte menu and daily specials.

Set in the heart of Kotu

The resort of Kotu with its excellent sandy beach is a popular, quieter alternative to Kololi and there are a couple of other hotels with restaurants open to outside guests, a craft market, beach bars and a small selection of local restaurants. A short walk from the hotel will bring you to Kotu Stream, a perfect spot to enjoy a variety of birdlife.

About the Local Area (Kotu)

This is a resort area that has developed over the past few years with some new bars and restaurants now open in winter, in addition to hotel restaurants which are open to the public.

Kotu boasts some popular hotels, with Kombo Beach dominating the beachfront. There is also the quieter charm of Bakotu and the beautiful gardens of Bungalow Beach Aparthotel. The area also has a busy and boisterous craft market in which you can find batiks and all manner of superb wood carvings. Kotu has a number of good restaurants including the excellent Sailor's local restaurant which is along the beach. There is also a golf course nearby.


A wide, sandy beach which is fairly flat and ideal for families, although not a very deep beach in terms of distance to the ocean. The area outside the Sunset Beach can change quite dramatically depending on the direction of the Kotu stream.
