- Kerry, Sales


What we love

  • The tropical gardens filled with bougainvillea and coconut palms.


Good to know

  • Prices are based on half board, but you can choose to upgrade to an all-inclusive meal plan if you wish.


Spend time in the beautiful grounds

A striking feature of Royam Hotel is 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. Here, a raised sand platform allows you to look out over the ocean, or you can take advantage of the various water sports on offer.

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 sun beds 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 also available).

Rooms are all air-conditioned, and 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.


In Saly there are a number of water sports centres located at regular intervals along the bay and several centres offering world-class ocean fishing. Most of the hotels also offer sporting facilities such as table tennis and volleyball.  Saly also has an 18 hole, 72 par golf course, and children and adults alike will enjoy a trip to the Bandia Nature Reserve, where you can see wildlife such as zebra, giraffes and rhino up close, followed by a few hours in the Accrobaobab Adventure Park, where you can climb, swing and slide on a series of nets and ropes amongst the baobab trees.
