Gambian Retreat

A little oasis in which to relax whilst experiencing life in the local community.

Gambian Retreat is a traditional Gambian compound situated within the local community on the outskirts of Cape Point, Bakau and is within a 10-minute easy walking distance of the local sandy beach, restaurants, hotels, shops and craft market at Cape Point.

Gambian Retreat has two rooms available to stay in one double and one twin (with 2 single beds) and a bathroom with a shower for both rooms to share.

Guests have full access to the lounge area, kitchen and its facilities as well as all areas of the garden and swimming pool.

We work very hard with our guests to ensure that their stay is relaxing and enjoyable, so should you wish for us to organise anything extra that you may require during your stay, please do not hesitate to discuss this with the experienced staff who live on site.

For a small additional charge, we are able to arrange airport transfers on arrival and departure.  We also provide the opportunity to be taken anywhere locally by our very own tuk-tuk.
