La Brise Spa & Fitness Centre, at the Labranda Coral Beach Hotel & Spa, offers a wide range of treatments that will help you to relax and unwind: the perfect start to any holiday in The Gambia.
Built on the hillside, with glorious views across the Atlantic Ocean, this is a wonderfully unique hotel. The architectural design is reminiscent of an African village but with a luxurious slant. This popular beach-side hotel offers all-inclusive accommodation, however, bed and breakfast and half board are also available. The rooms are contemporary in design with various upgrades available including the luxurious presidential suite with its private pool.

The spa itself is set on a clifftop, with its own swimming pool and more stunning views. If you are seeking peace and solitude the spa pool is a great place to escape for a quiet swim if the main, much larger, swimming pool area is busy.
As well as indoor treatment rooms, there are also individual outdoor massage alcoves overlooking the ocean, so that the sea breeze can caress you – the ultimate in relaxation. A wide choice of treatments are available for women, men and couples, using a range of massage techniques and beauty treatments.
“When I arrived at Coral Beach Hotel I was immediately impressed by the design and ambience – luxury with an African twist in a relaxing atmosphere. A short walk from the reception brought me to the spa where I was shown into some rather basic changing rooms, but that was the only mediocre aspect of my visit. After a relaxing swim – I was the only ones using the cliff-top pool – it was time for my massage.
The spa’s signature massage starts with a hot stone back massage. The temperature was just right, as I relaxed while my masseur gently massaged my back with the stones, a really wonderful feeling that I would gladly repeat. This was followed by an excellent Swedish leg massage, an Indonesian hand massage and lastly, an Indian head massage – the perfect end to one of the best massages I have ever head. Although it was not the kind of massage that would root out those knots that form in your neck and back, it certainly was the height of self-indulgence. When some serious ‘me time’ is required this is the massage to opt for.” Kathryn Burrington, Boutique Travel Blog
