The all inclusive Labranda Coral Beach Resort boasts a picturesque beachfront setting, overlooking a quiet and inviting stretch of sand along the Brufut coastline.

Our Expert Opinion

"I loved the location of my Superior Sea View room, with its uninterrupted view of the ocean. Add an infinity pool, spa and delicious buffets and the experience is complete!"

- Karen, Product Manager


What we love

  • The spa, with its elevated position, separate pool and treatment cabanas overlooking the ocean.
  • The unspoilt sandy beach stretching in both directions


Good to know

  • A range of room upgrades are available for a supplement, some with direct access to the gardens/beach.


A beautiful setting

Now renamed Labranda Coral Beach Resort following its change of management in late 2017, this property enjoys one of the most remarkable locations of any hotel in The Gambia. Coral Beach not only overlooks the ocean, but also boasts attractive grounds, dominated by towering baobabs and gently waving palms that rustle in the refreshing coastal breeze – this is certainly a scene of serenity.

The hotel has become established as an all-inclusive resort, offering a good variety of meals, primarily served buffet-style, as well as live cooking, generally in the elevated Crematata restaurant where breakfast is served. The main bar is located on the pool level, so you can enjoy a drink looking out across the infinity pool towards the Atlantic ocean.

Located near the village of Brufut, the setting of this hotel is more secluded than some others in our collection, with few bars and restaurants in the direct vicinity making it ideal for those in search of a hotel-based, all-inclusive holiday. But with several activities on offer including water aerobics, table tennis and darts, there's plenty to do within the hotel, along with simply relaxing – not forgetting the on-site spa. Children's activities may occasionally be organised, subject to minimum numbers, and there's a separate children's pool.

The lively resort of Kololi is also just a 10-minute taxi ride away with its craft market, shops and numerous restaurants and bars if you’d like to explore the local area.

Sit back and relax with a treatment or two

La Brise Spa is located in a separate building, with a fitness centre as well as indoor and outdoor treatment areas, from where you can enjoy a massage overlooking the sea. There's also a quiet pool in this area overlooking the beach. All guests will receive free use of the sauna and steam room from 9am-9pm. See spa information.

A choice of sea-facing guest rooms

Labranda Coral Beach’s bedrooms are of a contemporary style, and enjoy sea views from their ocean-facing balcony or terrace. There are two wings: the Baobab Wing is closer to the main building and restaurants, housing the Standard rooms. There's also a variety of upgraded room options which are larger and closer to the beach such as the superbly located superior sea view rooms, offering uninterrupted ocean views from both ground and upper floors.

With its beautiful grounds and beach access, a stay at the Labranda Coral Beach will be one of relaxation and rejuvenation.

About the Local Area (Brufut)

Brufut, situated approximately 10 minutes south of Kololi, is a town located in the Western Division of The Gambia. The town of Brufut is situated a couple of kilometres inland from the coastal road, but the name Brufut is applied to an area extending from around the town, out to the coast. It has a main street with a market, and some government offices. It is a fast developing location because of its highly developed infrastructure.

It is best known as a developing residential area of private villas. This large guarded and gated community encloses luxury villas and was constructed in 2006 by the Government purposely to have a secured place to lodge the 52 presidents expected to attend the 7th AU summit in The Gambia. Within easy reach from the capital and the economic centre, by the Kombo Coastal Highway, it’s an ideal situation for a residence giving direct views over the sandy beaches and the Atlantic Ocean.


There is an unspoilt sandy beach surrounding the Gambia Coral Beach Hotel & Spa, along with other local beaches such as Batokunku with its beach bar and local restaurant.

Spa Facilities Information

The Gambia Coral Beach Hotel & Spa offers a stand-alone Spa facility offering a wide range of reasonably priced treatments, plus a hairdressing salon and fitness centre. There is also a small second pool in this area for use by Spa guests. Treatment rooms are either indoor, or some can be offered in an open-air setting, making the most of the cliff-top location.
