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 and has a swimming pool exclusively for hotel guests. There is an English-style pub, a restaurant (serves breakfasts only) and 24 hour reception. Free and fast WIFI is available in all rooms and indoor public areas. The owner, the 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 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.
