The perfect balance between design, comfort and nature
A place of gentle rhythms and sensuous fragrances, of whales and turtles, forest hikes and cooling swims.
Hidden away on the coast of West Africa, Sundy Praia is a tented luxury hotel at the wild northwestern tip of the island of Principe, just a 35 min flight from Sao Tome. At Sundy Praia, you can lose all sense of time. Awaking to the chatter of forest parrots, you will readjust to nature’s clock, perhaps practising yoga in the morning sun, relaxing on the beach in the afternoon, dining beneath a sea of stars, before drifting off at night to the lullaby of sea on sand. A place of gentle rhythms and sensuous fragrances, of whales and turtles, forest hikes and cooling swims, a visit to Sundy Praia awakens the senses and frees the mind. Staying here compliments an itinerary that includes Roca Sundy, just inland on the same plantation.
Choose from one, two- or three-bedroom tented villas. The one bedroom is a simple but distinctive romantic hideaway for two. The three-bedroom villas have a private pool, and each dwelling achieves the perfect balance between design, comfort and nature. Principe is blessed with an abundance of natural produce, its forests filled with fruit and nuts, and its waters brimming with tuna and Wahoo. Inspired by this natural larder, the international chefs refine the best of the island’s produce and traditions, creating seasonal menus bursting with original flavours and fresh, organic ingredients.
Once part of the second largest cocoa plantation on Principe, this leafy sanctuary exists in perfect harmony with its forest surrounds. The scent of tropical flowers lies rich and heavy on the air, the lush forest canopy is alive with the chatter of parrots and weavers, kingfishers and monkeys. Beyond the beaches, where turtles sometimes come ashore to nest, humpback whales are a common summer sight, drawn with their calves to the warm, sheltered waters of the bay. Sundy Praia is a sustainable tourism project that provides unique experiences through interaction with the local community, allowing guests to discover the extraordinary qualities of Príncipe Island.
