This year holiday-goers can ditch mainstream locations like the Maldives, St. Barts and the French Riviera for something a bit more exotic and a lot more exclusive – the lesser known São Tomé & Príncipe is one of Africa’s smallest nations, stretching across 1,000 square kilometers of landmass and with a population of less than 200,000. However, with some of the richest biodiversity on Earth, its emerging tourism sector is quickly harnessing the scenic islands’ untapped potential.
Bom Bom Island Resort located on Príncipe Island provides an idyllic setting for guests to marvel at pristine lagoons and dramatic mountain tops while kicking it back in modern bungalows that overlook the sea. With famous chefs and a 24-hour service staff – guests are treated to the better life and can even sneak a peek into how some of the best chocolate in the world is harvested at the at the Terreiro Velho plantation of Claudio Corallo.
This is a travel destination that is unique for two reasons – the natural surroundings and the people. The luxurious simplicity of the rooms allows guests to have a more harmonious experience and enjoy the emerald green water and private beaches instead of getting lost in modern amenities. This is pure relaxation and becoming one with Nature at starting price of $1450 per person/night.
Bom Bom is quickly rising to fame on the international tourist scene as it is not just another overly-developed resort, remaining a tranquil place, where you can surrender to the charm and the natural beauty of this hidden gem of Africa.
