Your Destination —
The Kairaba Hotel is a popular 5-star hotel on the idyllic coast of The Gambia in West Africa. Set in the middle of 40 acres of lush tropical gardens with, despite some ongoing erosion at Kololi, miles of sandy beaches to wander along on the doorstep, it is the perfect location to put the hectic pace of everyday life behind you and enjoy a place of peace and beauty.
The area of Kololi is by far the most established resort area, featuring its own craft market. There are a number of restaurants here serving a variety of cuisine styles from traditional Gambian to Mexican, Lebanese and beyond. You'll also find banks & exchange bureaus, internet cafes and shops.
The Gambia may be mainland Africa's smallest nation, but it punches way above its weight in terms of attractions. With its glorious low-key beaches, bustling towns that combine colonial architecture and traditional activities and wealth of wildlife.
Visitors keen to experience West African rural culture may head off the beaten track and up-country to simple, traditional villages, or why not spend a lazy day on the River Gambia?

Your Hotel —
A quality, well-established property with excellent facilities and spacious tranquil gardens, the appeal of The Kairaba lies in the serene atmosphere and prime location beside Kololi beach.
This beautiful hotel is all about peace and relaxation, which is only interrupted by the monkeys and birdlife visiting from the neighbouring forest. There are no pool games or loud music during the day to disturb guests, croquet is more in keeping with the tranquil tone of the hotel although there is the occasional local band or entertainment in the evening.
