“A true gem of a residence...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Le Kenkeni as part of a group who had travelled to Senegal to assist with a charity project. As it was my first time in Senegal I was apprehensive to say the least but upon arrival at the final destination all of my nervousness disappeared. A small and discreet building tucked away from the main highway Le Kenkeni will give you the piece of mind you may be looking for when staying in Warang and the friendly staff make you feel like part of the close family that operate this establishment.

The building is split into two separate blocks with a central staircase offering access to a first floor and a gorgeous rooftop terrace with views to the sea. The ground floor is comprised of two 3 bed lodgings, communal shower and toilet, a kitchen and a large studio apartment with traditional artwork and furniture, TV, DVD (not that you will need this in your time in Senegal). Contained within the apartment is a large bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The large bed is covered with a mosquito net and all windows are barred and covered with netting also.

The layout is symmetrical on the other side of the building and the first floor also follows a similar pattern with internal lockable doors for the added security. Rooms are clean and offer generous opportunities to power any electrical devices you may have. The hotel also offers WiFi access to its guests at no extra cost.

As previously mentioned the staff welcome you into their family and whether it is the culinary delights of Antoine in the rooftop kitchen shack, the smiling Mathilde who waits on you attentively, Edwij and her helpful hints to the area or Wali and his transport help you will have a fabulous time staying at he Kenkeni. Sophie, the owner will ensure you get the most of your stay here and any trips, excursions and outings you require will be arranged with the expert advice of the staff. Be sure to maximise the rooftop terrace hammocks as you watch the sunset in the evening over the ocean, listening to the drums and tribals singing in the local village.

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic, clean and spacious. If possible get the studio apartments as they afford yo...
