Roça Sundy

Príncipe Island, São Tomé & Príncipe

This former plantation complex dates back to the start of the 20th century, when it was a splendid establishment in the heart of one of the largest cacao plantations on the islands. It has been lovingly restored by local builders using mostly recycled materials.

The restaurant has a beautifully preserved veranda from where there are panoramic views. Locally- sourced and organical ingredients are used for meals.

There are two separate houses, Colonial House with 6 rooms, and Plantation House, which has 9 rooms. The rooms are immaculate, with air-conditioning, safe, mini-bar and satellite TV. 

About 90% of the staff are locally recruited and speak only some English. The property has been described as a 'fascinating social experiment': the staff live in old labourers' huts repurposed as homes for them; guests are able to interact with the staff as much - or as little - as desired. (Having a smattering of Portuguese is helpful).  

The site is about 15km from Principe airport, along a rough track. Its about 20-30 minutes walk to the sister property Sundy Praia, which has a beach that guests are welcome to relax on. (Transfers can be arranged to/from the Sundy Praia beach at 10 euro per way).

Please note that there are no single rooms. 

Activities on offer here include birdwatching walks, cookery courses, massages and yoga.
