Why choose Djeliba Leisure Group hotels?

Djeliba Leisure Group, Gambia's leading hotel group, offers accommodation options in three beautiful hotels on The Smiling Coast of Africa. Named after African instruments that symbolise joy, culture and customs, these hotels are a unique blend of traditional and modern architecture.

Here are five reasons you should stay at one of their hotels.

Gambian owned 

Kalimba, Tamala and Balafon are 100% Gambian-owned. Mr Malleh Sallah and Mr Omar Jawara started a partnership almost ten years ago, resulting in a lot of success. Most of the staff in all three hotels are also Gambians. If you want to support Gambian-owned accommodation providers, choose to stay at Tamala, Kalimba or Balafon.

Location, location, location

All three hotels are located directly on the beach, blended with modern architecture, tropical gardens and shimmering pools. Swim-up pool rooms with ocean views are probably the most popular and wanted rooms in The Gambia. An exceptional location on the beach is the perfect place whether you're in the country for a holiday, sporting event, luxury getaway, business trip, romantic break, or conference, Djeliba Leisure Group hotels are here to cater to your every need.

Balafon Beach Resort

The food and drink

Every one of the hotels, except for Kalimba, has an on-site restaurant where they serve breakfast. For lunch and dinner, guests can enjoy their meals at Balafon Beach Restaurant and Tamala Beach restaurant. 

Every Sunday, Tamala Beach Resort transforms its restaurant with an ocean view into a spectacular brunch experience. There is a different combination of tastes prepared for you each time. The live cooking station allows you to select grilled meat and seafood preferences. Enjoy the taste of the vast choice of refreshing salads in combination with international and local dishes created from the finest ingredients. Don’t miss out on the mouthwatering desserts prepared by the skilled team of the in-house patisserie. Top up your Sunday meal with the selection of the finest wines available.

Tamala Beach Lounge

Open throughout the year. 

The Gambia is an all-year-round destination, although some restaurants and hotels stay closed from April to October. Tamala, Balafon and Kalimba are operating throughout the year, which is one more reason you should book your stay at any of these beautiful hotels.

Tamala Beach Resort

Amazing offers

Djeliba Leisure Group runs regular deals and specials that ensure you get the most out of your stay, whether you travel for business or pleasure. Keep an eye on Tamala Beach Resort & Balafon Beach for the latest offers, like their special promo for Gambian and Senegalese residents, Friday BBQ nights or Sunday Brunch.
