The Emoyeni Gardens Hotel

Emoyeni Gardens is a family-run hotel on the outskirts (7 minutes walk) of São Tomé city center. The property is surrounded by an impressive garden with a cute, relaxing swimming pool. The hotel has an English-style pub, a restaurant (serves breakfasts only) and 24 hour reception. Free and fast wifi is available in all rooms and public areas. The owner, the assistant manager and the bar manager/maintenance manager are a close-knit family, and they are always happy to help in any way they can.

We all believe that through sustainable and community based tourism the island will prosper and all will benefit. As such we work hard on providing guests with unique experiences whilst supporting and promoting local communities and businesses.
