Roca Sundy Principe Island
This lovingly restored old plantation house, whose grounds are shared with local villagers, will give you a real feeling of the character and history of Príncipe Island. Of its 12 authentically decorated rooms, you can choose between Colonial House or the Plantation House, with spectacular tropical views.
The Atlantic Archipelago of São Tomé and Príncipe includes two islands and several islets, among them Bom Bom island. Situated in the Gulf of Guinea, they form together with the neighbouring Island of Pagalú and Bioko, the group of the archipelagos of the Gulf the Guinea, on the African western coast. The hotel Roça Sundy is located at Príncipe Island, São Tomé and Príncipe. You can reach it by air from Portugal with TAP or STP Airways. A domestic flight from São Tomé international airport operates daily to Príncipe Island. In São Tomé main island, accommodation is provided at the boutique hotel Omali.
Rooms & Suites
At Roça Sundy, you’ll find 12 comfortable rooms: 6 rooms in the Plantation House and 6 rooms in the Colonial House. The Colonial House is Roça Sundy’s main house, where the hotel services, restaurant and bar are to be found. In the Plantation House, the style is more contemporary but with the same level of comfort and splendid views overlooking the plantation grounds or tropical forest. All of the rooms are spacious and include air conditioning, private bathroom, satellite TV, safe and mini-bar.
Colonial House: Three rooms with panoramic view on the first floor, with 30m², including balcony. Two of them are connecting rooms. More three rooms on the ground floor: one master suite (50m²) and two rooms (30m²) with garden view, all with private bathroom.
Plantation House: Six rooms with 25m² of living space, three with garden view and another three with panoramic view and balcony, all with private bathroom.
Restaurant & Bars
At the Roça Sundy restaurant our commitment is both social and environmental. What we don’t produce in our own organic gardens, we negotiate fairly with local producers and we believe that this is the only approach that makes sense. Dishes are always inspired locally with fresh fish, fruits and vegetables of the season.
Lying in perfect isolation some 130 miles off the West African coast, Príncipe’s forests shelter an abundance of endemic birds and plants, reptiles and amphibians – little wonder the island is sometimes referred to as Africa’s Galapagos. But this is not a desert island: Príncipe has its people too, living in the colourful main town, Santo António, or scattered in pretty fishing villages along the coast. Our goal is to maintain and build harmony between the people and their island, and Roça Sundy is a vital part of that goal, providing a model of sustainable, responsible tourism, with the people of Príncipe involved at its core.
