Omali Lodge

São Tomé Island, São Tomé & Príncipe

The  stylishly decorated Omali Lodge Boutique Hotel is set along the white sandy shores of Lagarto Beach close to the cultural melting pot of São Tomé Town. Just 5 minutes outside of town and near the Obo National Park, the lodge is a perfect base both to relax and from which to explore the island of  São Tomé.  The long, crescent shaped beach is separated from the hotel by a road and string of palm trees -adequate for a good swim and ideal for an early morning beach walk. Combine Omali Lodge with sister property Bom Bom Island Resort on neighbouring Principe.


Set amongst the palm trees and well kept gardens the 30 luxury suites all face the swimming pool. The classic rooms are simple, comfortable and cosy. For a nominal additional cost guests will appreciate the stylish, spacious Junior Suites with separate lounge and prime pool views. There is a Honeymoon Suite and families can request the 2 bedroomed Family Room. All rooms feature an en suite bathroom, air-conditioning, satellite TV,  telephone and mini-bar.


Trained by famed restaurant owner and Masterchef judge Ljubomir Stanisic, the team at Cume Fina Restaurant  produce good quality tasty food.  The Leve Leve Bar encourages guests to live by the islands motto – ‘leve leve’ – meaning “just enjoy life and watch the sun go down”


The reception team will arrange a transfer into town, currency exchange and the facility to secure valuables in the electronic safe. There is a small souvenir shop and laundry service, and Wi-Fi is available in the public areas. 


São Tomé packs a lot in for such a small country. From Omali Lodge guests can immerse themselves in the nature, wildlife and culture of the island and for the adventurous there is both easy and challenging hiking, seasonal whale watching, year round dolphins sightings, bird watching (with a number of endemics) and sport fishing.  There is also a dazzling array of dive sites that suit both beginners and advanced level scuba divers. Keen photographers are rewarded with vivid colours, verdant landscapes and the opportunity to interact with the islands residents who share a rich cultural heritage of both Africa and Europe. 


Accommodation Reviews

We had a lovely holiday. Principe and Bom Bom in particular were lovely. But so was getting a public bus across Sao Tome.

If there were things to be improved, one would be finding a better flight schedule. The trip back, landing at 4am in Lisbon was a bit gruesome.

But overall a great holiday.  Thanks you

'We got back yesterday and it was a great trip.  The journey is long though but overall TAP are good. When we got to  Principe we were given Room 3, the best hut right on beach.  Principe is something special we could have spent longer there

A great holiday thank you'
