Omali Lodge is a tranquil 30 room hideaway in São Tomé and sister boutique hotel to Bom Bom Island Resort on Principe Island. Together with the island of Principe, São Tomé is one of the smallest countries in the world, located a few miles off the western coast of Africa. Rich in flora São Tomé is home to 700 species including orchids, birds and marine turtles many of which are endemic.
Adventure lovers will enjoy the challenge of climbing the Pico de São Tomé (over 2000m), diving to the colourful under water world along the coast, trekking, fishing, hiking and biking. The guided tours through the virgin rainforest are a must and the local botanical garden with more than 100 different orchids from São Tomé is definitely worth a visit during your stay at Omali Lodge. Between October and April four species of marine turtles are known to lay their eggs in the beach, including the great leather-back.
The bar terrace at Omali Lodge overlooks the beach and the combination of a refreshing drink and stunning skyline is the best way to start the evening at any Chic Retreat!. Sublime flavours and colours overflow from the kitchen with dishes made from local ingredients and catch of the day.
