If you are looking for a relaxed get away this is the place for you. The “chocolate” islands are untouched by modern civilizations in many ways. It’s almost like time stopped and we were forgotten by the world. Life in São Tomé takes on a “leve leve” speed, allowing you time to re-connect with yourself and with nature. Alex the manager and her partner Ilija love the outdoors and are always adventuring, you are welcome to join them, just ask Alex at reception, she is always happy to have people tag along.
With glorious warm waters, thick heavy rain forest, lots of heat and blissful silence, São Tomé is bound to re-charge you with good and happy vibes. There is glamping, camping, beach bungalows, amazing grilled fish and roasted bread fruit, the best tropical fruits you could ever eat, beautiful old plantations to wander around, super friendly people and much, much more.
