It's fair to say there isn't anything else in The Gambia quite like Leo's. Opened in 2013, this small, family-run hotel offers quality with a contemporary style, along with peace, tranquillity and excellent sea views.

Contemporary luxury in The Gambia

A stunning hotel built using eco-friendly techniques, the owners Luis and Nina have effortlessly shaped a modern, bold design with cool clean lines, blending into the landscape and offering some of the finest views of any hotel in The Gambia. This adult-only boutique property has consistently been rewarded with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, recognised for its high-quality finish, spacious gardens and stunning views towards the ocean from its elevated location.

Leo’s is all about tranquillity, relaxation and personal service, reinforced by its small number of rooms and child-free policy. There is peace and quiet to be savoured throughout the property, from beside the pool to the bantaba overlooking the ocean and golden sands below the hotel, accessed via a gently descending series of wooden steps and a short walk. The beach here is beautiful and unspoilt, seemingly stretching endlessly in either direction, perfect for a romantic stroll.

 

Unrivaled comfort in your room

The hotel’s second-storey rooms, fresh and contemporary, are all housed in the main building and offer a high degree of comfort, with all amenities at your fingertips. The five standard rooms all face the ocean in the distance, with views over the swimming pool and gardens beyond. There is also a larger suite available with a very spacious living room and balcony running the length of the suite, however this does not overlook the main gardens. 

 

Benefit from wonderful culinary offerings

The restaurant is another benefit of a stay at Leo’s, with its glowing reputation for delicious, Mediterranean food. The restaurant is popular with local residents, while half board guests are able to dine à la carte (supplements apply for tiger prawns and lobster). There’s no better way to start the day than with a continental breakfast along with hot dishes cooked to order, while enjoying a cool Julbrew as the sun sets will promise an equally memorable end to the day.

With only six rooms, a child-free policy, and its quiet location in Brufut, Leo’s is ideal for a romantic break or for those seeking peace and tranquillity away from the busier tourist resorts. Early booking is strongly recommended.

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.

Beaches

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.
