This elegant all-inclusive hotel has undergone a total refurbishment in the last couple of years and enjoys a fantastic location nestled between a white sandy beach and the lagoon of La Somone, with the busier resort of Saly only a 20 minute drive away.

Decameron Hotels & Resorts is renowned for providing unique, high quality holiday experiences and this hotel in Senegal is no different, suiting holidaymakers of all ages. The spacious comfortable, bungalow-style rooms are decorated in a colourful blend of modern and African décor and are scattered amongst the pretty gardens, all with a private terrace and attractive view; some of the beach front rooms open directly on to the sandy beach for a blissful panorama as soon as you wake up.

Your all-inclusive package offers good variety with dining of a high standard in one of the two restaurants, plus a snack bar for those in-between moments. The restaurants and bars, as well as the swimming pool and sunbathing terraces, all have commanding views over the beach and lagoon, with tables arranged both inside and outside to enjoy al fresco dining during the balmy evenings.

This location has everything you need for a holiday as active or as relaxed as you like, as many activities are also included in your package, such as a scuba diving trial in the swimming pool, a range of non-motorised water sports on the beach, tennis, volleyball and even the weekly manager’s cocktail party.

For something different, the lagoon next door is home to some 150 species of birds, with pelicans and flamingos being the most prominent. The sight of these beautiful birds will appeal to everyone, whether you’re a keen ‘twitcher’ or not!

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.
