Spend time in the beautiful grounds

This attractive beachfront hotel has undergone extensive renovations since 2020, making it a great choice for a relaxing beach break, yet conveniently located close to the resort of Saly. A striking feature of Royam Hotel are the extensive lawns, bordered by colourful shrubs and bougainvillea, which lead down to the coconut tree-lined sandy beach that’s reserved for hotel guests. The beach of Saly is now a fantastic space following a replenishment programme along 6km of coastline - you can participate in a range of water sports or simply relax with a drink from the new beach bar.

Unwind further at the hotel’s beauty salon, situated close to the beach, where you can enjoy a therapeutic massage or one of the many beauty treatments on offer.

Relax under the sunshine

The unique spiral shaped pool is definitely a focal point of the hotel – shaded sunbeds surround it and the pool bar serves drinks and snacks all day. Out of the sun, the lounge offers books, board games and satellite television and you’ll also find an internet area and gift shop selling souvenirs and displaying artwork from local artists.

For dining, the hotel restaurant spills out onto the pool terrace, offering a variety of local Senegalese and European dishes, served buffet style with themed evenings and live entertainment (an à la carte menu is also available).

Rooms are all air-conditioned, and many are located in round bungalows dotted around the hotel grounds, with a terrace overlooking either the gardens or towards the ocean. Décor and colours are traditionally African, with raised Senegalese roofs providing a light and airy feel.

About the Local Area (Saly)

The resort of Saly is located on the 'Petite Côte', approximately 80 kilometres south of Dakar and 65 kilometres north of the Sine Saloum Delta. Saly is an ideal holiday destination that has long been popular with French and Belgian tourists and as such has a very established feel, with its variety of hotels, palm-fringed sandy beaches, calm clear waters, bars,restaurants, shops and a wide range of activities.

The smaller resort of La Somone is only a short drive from Saly and enjoys an idyllic location beside a stunning lagoon, home to the Réserve de la Somone, a birdwatcher’s paradise. Nearby you can also visit the Bandia Nature Reserve, a small but perfectly formed wildlife park where you can see roaming freely: giraffe,rhino, zebra, ostrich, antelope, buffalo, bush pigs, impala and many other birds and animals. For the more active, both Saly and La Somone have several excellent water sports centres offering a range of activities such as jet-skis, water-skiing, catamarans, kayaks and windsurfing, and several excellent fishing clubs offering world-class deep sea fishing. Quad and buggy tours or horse treks are available in and around the resorts and Saly is home to an attractive 18-hole golf course as well as the Accrobaobab Adventure Park, where you can climb, swing and slide on a series of nets and ropes amongst the baobab trees.
