Great value in The Gambia
This friendly property is under new management since May 2018 and a renovation project is being undertaken during summer 2018 with further improvements to public areas planned for next year. Renamed Sunu Hotel, it's now sold as a 3-grade property and returning guests are sure to see positive changes in both rooms and reception areas. Sunu promises a great location for getting out to explore the resort, while also providing a quiet space for some relaxation.
The standard rooms are fairly small, but offer a good level of accommodation and face onto a central courtyard so remain quiet despite the location in the heart of Kololi. All rooms now have air-conditioning and Wi-Fi as standard. The Deluxe rooms are much larger, equipped with a seating area and flat screen television, as well as a fridge and tea/coffee-making facilities. Rooms are arranged on three floors, all surrounding the central courtyard which is home to the inviting swimming pool and sun terraces.
If the pool is not for you, or you fancy getting out and about, the hotel has access to a sandy beach which is located no more than 400 metres away. The hotel also houses a massage centre and hairdresser (independently owned), while a mini-market and exchange bureau are amongst the shops located just outside the hotel.
Evening entertainment takes the form of local shows, although you may find the hotel can be less busy in the evenings due to the convenient location in the centre of Kololi. There's an excellent variety of restaurants, a number of bars and nightclubs, a craft market and several shops all just outside the hotel. For this reason, we do not offer this hotel on a half board basis (this can be arranged in advance for groups).
We're really pleased to be working with this hotel once again as it upgrades its facilities and, although not situated directly on a beach its location has wide appeal.
