A popular and friendly hotel, Palma Rima is a great choice for couples and families looking for an activity-filled holiday.
What we love
- The enormous pool! It's one of the biggest in The Gambia and perfect for cooling off or enjoying pool games.
- The hotel offers multiple board bases: Bed and Breakfast, Half Board and All Inclusive.
Good to know
- This hotel is located just a short walk from the sandy South Kotu beach and a selection of bars and restaurants.
- It is worth considering an upgrade to a spacious bungalow; these are dotted around the gardens and were refurbished during summer 2020.
One of the largest swimming pools
Boasting one of the biggest swimming pools in The Gambia, this is certainly a focal point of the hotel and provides plenty of space for a refreshing dip or game of water volleyball. Surrounded by large sun terraces and umbrellas, guests can unwind and soak up the glorious African sunshine. Just a short walk away is South Kotu beach, a popular spot with holidaymakers. Feel the sand between your toes and be sure to stop at Luigi’s ice-cream parlour on the way!
We offer rooms either facing the pool in the main building or situated in bungalows, which are newly refurbished and spacious. Dotted throughout the lush gardens, each bungalow room sleeps up to four guests and has patio doors that open out onto a small terrace.
Wide array of activities
Guests at Palma Rima will never be short of things to do. As well as the large swimming pool and separate pool for children, the hotel offers many daytime activities, including: water aerobics, table tennis, chess, darts and volleyball. A sociable, informal atmosphere also continues into the evening, where guests can enjoy the local entertainment or make the most of the hotel’s own bar.
Located midway between the tourist areas of Kotu and Kololi, you are only a short taxi ride away from a wider selection of restaurants and bars, should you fancy a change of scenery.
Enjoy an all inclusive holiday
Guests will enjoy buffet breakfasts and meals served in the Rim Restaurant, offering a wide variety of international and traditional African dishes. Drinks are served at either the separate all inclusive bar, or from within the restaurant.
