Bask in sunshine at a brand-new Gambia beach retreat - includes breakfast and all travel, plus optional swim-up room and two-night safari break

Year-round sunshine, beautiful beaches and warm hospitality makes Gambia the perfect destination for a relaxing break, and the African Princess Beach Hotel is the perfect minimalist-chic pad. Set on a wide stretch of golden sand in South Kotu, this stylish property has lush tropical gardens and several free-form swimming pools alongside a main pool, so you’ll be able to find a sun-lounger in a prime spot at any time of day – perfect if relaxation is the name of the game.

Relax in the spa or, if you're feeling in the mood for something more active, hit the gym or join in water aerobics and beach volleyball. Come evening, head to the restaurant for dinner followed by a show, or take a short walk for a selection of bars and restaurants. The guestrooms are light and airy, and those on the ground floor even have swim-up pools for a refreshing dip straight from your terrace.

As part of your stay you could opt to enjoy two nights in tented accommodation at Fathala Wildlife Reserve, where features include a small outdoor pool lined with loungers overlooking the watering hole (perfect for wildlife-spotting), a welcoming restaurant and lounge, and beautifully decorated safari tents complete with air conditioning and a freestanding bathtub. Embark on an included guided game drive and luxury mangrove boat trip, with other optional excursions also available such as island excursions, village market tours and more - the perfect away-from-it-all escape for lovers of wildlife and the great outdoors.
