Nestled in tropical gardens and just 100m from Kotu beach, the Bakotu Hotel offers a little something for everyone! With activities for those of all ages, as well as relaxing settings and a great location this hotel is ideal for couples and families looking for an idyllic holiday in Gambia.

Backing directly onto Kotu Creeks with its huge range of tropical birds and animals the hotel is ideally located for the local Bengdula craft market where you can try your hand at bartering for some of the many souvenirs and silver on offer! Or perhaps head for a game of golf at nearby Fajara's 18-hole golf courses the perfect way to spend a relaxing day working on your swing in the sun!

The town of Kotu is certainly worth a visit, with its many shops, bars and restaurants. But if bartering's not your thing, simply pop into the Purple Hibiscus for no hassle souvenir shopping. Everything here has a fixed price and you'll find it very reasonable too.

The hotel itself offers the perfect base from which to explore slightly further afield whether that be on one of the popular bush and beach safaris, boat trips or even privately guided daytrips all of which can be arranged from the hotel.

Whilst just 50m to all the nearest restaurants, shops and bars, the hotel offers a range of facilities including an outdoor free form swimming pool with sun terrace where you can just sit back and soak up the famously hot Gambian sunshine. When the heat gets too much head inside and choose from two restaurants, a poolside bar serving snacks and even a small mini-market for refreshing drinks and some delicious dishes. The reception here is manned 24 hours a day so if there's anything you need assistance with, you only have to ask! has an excellent range of hotels in Gambia to help you plan the perfect getaway. From the wonderful Badala Park Hotel to the Hotel Sunset Beach and everything in between! Book online with and save!
