“A comfortable, cosy residence making you feel at home in Senegal straight away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Le Kenkeni is a wonderful residence which makes you feel secure and comfortable in Senegal as soon as you arrive. The rooms are clean, well equipped and spacious. Running water and reliable electricity are enough of a luxury given the conditions in parts of the surrounding village, but the TV and DVD player were a real added extra (not used by us incidentally!) The true highlight of the hotel is the wonderful rooftop terrace, with it's stunning view of the nearby sea and the surrounding village. The hammocks and restaurant area instantly put you into relaxed holiday mode and you know that you're not going to want to leave at the end of the trip. The meal output from the rooftop kitchen is incredible and the friendly and accommodating staff are always on hand to deal with any request. The food is all locally sourced and it is varied and delicious while also being very plentiful. The groups of teenagers we were with enjoyed everything they were given, often asking for more, and that is not easy to achieve. The location of the residence is excellent, less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and the local village is easy to reach. The hotel is also very well connected and able to organise a wide variety of visits and activities in the local area. All in all, it was a real pleasure to stay at Le Kenkeni and I would thoroughly recommend it without hesitation.

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...
