Overview

Bom Bom Island Resort is a 19 bungalow boutique hotel hideaway on the Portuguese-speaking island of Bom Bom in São Tomé and Príncipe, the second smallest country in Africa and the smallest country in the world.  This country is made up of two archipelagos around two main islands São Tomé and Príncipe, both of which are part of an extinct volanic mountain range. Bom Bom itself is a tiny little island off the north coast and is the perfect home base from which to discover this ecological gem in the Gulf of Guinea.  Nestled betweeon two pretty (and private) beaches Bom Bom is an idyllic honeymoon destination or holiday hideaway for couples looking to relax and enjoy the African cultures and Portuguese traditions in unspoilt surroundings.

Activities

Bom Bom island resort provides a perfect base from which to discover Principe island. This small Chic Retreat extends across two beaches and sits at the foothills of a lush rainforest.    Take a tour to explore the wonders of Principe Forest and watch out for many endemic species including fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and plants. Experience the sounds of the jungle and catch glimpses of a Mona Monkey or an African Grey Parrot.  From December to March you canwitness the Leather, Loggerhead & Green turtles nesting inthe Praia Grande.  From July until September Humpback whales visit the waters of Bom Bom island as they move from their summer feeding grounds to more tropical mating and calving areas.  The elusive large Atlantic Blue Marlin and world record size Atlantic Sailfish have made the area famous, and the magical island of Principe is one of the world’s least explored and most exciting Big Game Fishing destination.  Deep sea fishing, hiking, bird watching and fishing boat charter are all amongst the many activities available for guests.  Of course you might like to have a day or two relaxing by the pool or on the beach!

Fresh fish, local fruits and home grown vegetables and salads are used in the contemporary dishes which are filled with traditional flavours and a rainbow of colours.
