Escape to another world on our Luxurious Sao Tome and Principe holiday; a world forgotten by the constant speed of change and the pressures of the modern world.

It takes a little effort to travel to the islands of Sao Tome and Principe, however if you’re prepared to do this, the rewards will speak for themselves.

The islands hold a quiet charm of days gone by, and the choices of where to stay are quite limited. However, if you take a closer look you’ll be surprised by what you find, especially on the island of Principe. You’ll spend a night on Sao Tome before taking a short flight to the island of Principe where you’ll stay at the Bom Bom Island Eco Lodge.

There are 18 tastefully decorated bungalows set between two private beaches, and you can spend your time relaxing in the luxurious grounds or by exploring the island on one of our fascinating discovery trips. Knowing that you would be very reluctant to leave, we have added two more nights at the luxurious boutique hotel, Roca Belo Monte.
