Roça Belo Monte

Príncipe Island, São Tomé & Príncipe

Roça Belo Monte Plantation is perched on a hiltop overlooking five pretty beaches, to which its guests have easy access by means of complementary shuttle. 

This charming property has classical colonial architecture with elegant design.  There is a variety of room types to choose from, all very comfortable and air-conditioned: Manor House, Luxury Suites, Plantation rooms and also, Private Villas. 

Guests enjoy sundowners on the terrace and excellent, friendly service. The beach is down a twisty road from the hotel, but if you don't want to walk back up, they'll collect you with the shuttle. The staff and local guides can brief you as to where excellent snorkelling spots are. (Use of snorkelling equipment and kayaks is included in the rates).

The hotel has scuba diving equipment and boat, and works with an excellent divemaster.

The hotel's involvement in conservation initiatives as part of the sustainable tourism organisation 'Africa's Eden', is noteworthy.

Accommodation Reviews

Just a quick note to thank you for helping to arrange a very enjoyable trip. Everything went smoothly and the island was as beautiful as we remembered. The upgrade at Belo Monte was much appreciated- more for the lovely outside terrace than the plunge pool.

I think both hotels we’re coping well with their low numbers of guests. Belo Monte made a great effort in choosing different locations for dinner (although soup featured rather more than one would have liked) and Sundy Praia also had alternative locations with a high standard of food.

Since we booked, Sundy Praia changed the options which were included in the package, but after a discussion it was agreed that all of ours were included. Going to see the turtles leaving the nest was a highlight. However for future guests they need to be aware of the cost of such trips, particularly because they were quite pricey and because of the need for cash. None of our cards worked in any of the hotels - and we know other guests had similar problems. Our cards didn’t work at the bank either.

We are hopeful that next year our trip to Botswana will go ahead, but we very much enjoyed the alternative we took.

Thanks again
