Beachfront relaxation

On entering Ocean Bay Hotel’s reception area and restaurant you will be struck by the beautifully designed, galleried ceilings creating light and airy spaces. The large pool area at Ocean Bay Hotel remains a focal point for activities and evening entertainment, surrounded by sun-loungers, parasols and a shaded seating area. You’ll discover an air of tranquillity throughout the hotel’s lush gardens, while the long, sandy beach, accessed directly from the hotel, is one of the finest in The Gambia.

We offer larger deluxe rooms as standard for our customers which are located closer to the ocean and provide additional facilities including a private balcony; why not upgrade to a sea view room for a vista over the expanse of golden sand?

Dining at Ocean Bay

During the day, the pool bar with pizza oven provides an inviting lunchtime snack, and there’s also the choice of two restaurants; one serving buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner, including Gambian delicacies, and the beach-side Buddha Restaurant & Lounge serving beautifully presented sushi as well as other Asian and international dishes.

Why not try a cocktail from one of the hotel bars, or a lemongrass iced tea for which it’s well known? There are also themed evenings scheduled during winter, with entertainment including shows by the resident animation team and live bands to appeal to all the family. A small spa can be found on site for a touch of pampering.

Out and about
