Review:
The Kombo Beach, often erroneously referred to by some guide books as the Novotel, is set in 6 acres of resort grounds between 325 metres of golden sands. It was built in 1981 by Arne Sanders, with interior décor by Halvorsen Reine, and was finally opened in 1983.

From the Badala Highway the approach is lined on either side with trees, flower gardens and a row of terracotta monkeys. A porch thatched in elephant grass (nyantangho) is set on solid sculptured pillars is in front of the main reception lounge.

To your left is the Kingfisher Bar decked out in rattan seats, and opens out onto the Bellengo. Straight forward is the Lekukai which is translated into 'Place of Eating'. To the right, the reception, Elsafe desk, phones and shops .

There is a conference hall which can seat 145 persons but is more often used for showing films. The restaurants form an L-shape around the pool. The majority of guests prefer to eat outside in the peaked thatch Bantaba.

Around the pool sunchairs overflow onto the grass. By the 3 beach front gates, the active entertainment team is situated. There is a large entertainment area between the swimming area and the road outside.

Just after the children's play area are 4 nearly identical, 3-floored blocks which enclose 250 modern styled rooms, which are either twin or double, and almost all have a bathtub and shower. At the edge of the Kombo Beach Hotel is the volleyball pitch and tennis courts.
