The nineteen bungalows have been individually decorated in a modern style, with some offering breathtaking views out over the ocean or gardens. Some feature white-curtained four-poster beds, while others have their own balconies to laze on.
Located on Bom Bom island, just off the coast of Principe, this beachside boutique hotel is the idyllic spot for a restorative getaway. The retreat is nestled within verdant palm-filled surrounds, with an almost deserted beach sitting right on its doorstep.
Bom Bom Island Resort is made up of nineteen wooden bungalows, whose rustic wooden exterior belies modern décor within. Interiors have been inspired by the island’s African and Portuguese cultures, boasting local artwork and stylish light fittings. Best of all, the views are truly sensational - with lush forest and glittering ocean only steps away.
Whether you’re here to try local flavours, to explore the islands and villages, or simply to lie back and relax - this island gem ticks all the boxes.
The hotel sits on a sweeping stretch of white-sand beach, which is more or less deserted excepting hotel guests. There is also a gorgeous pool to dip into and beautifully manicured gardens to explore. As if that weren’t relaxation enough, the hideaway also has a pampering spa offering a range of massages and beauty treatments.
Excursions to local plantations and to Principe’s villages can also be arranged, as can boat trips, whale watching and dolphin watching.
Sample local delights at the hotel’s restaurant, which serves African cuisine using seasonal ingredients. A great breakfast is also served in the mornings and is included in most room rates (see rate detail below).
