Update: please note Bom Bom is undergoing refurbishment and is expected to reopen in May 2024.


Set on a tiny, forested islet off the northern tip of Príncipe, Bom Bom (which means ‘Good Good’) is a place to escape the world without giving up on  comfort. The resort is reached by walking across a long wooden bridge from Principe, and its 17 en-suite bungalows have a serene and comfortable style with private verandas and air conditioning. Some are on the beach, others look towards the sea, tropical gardens or pool, and there’s a large wood-decked lounge and restaurant serving locally-caught fish and South African wines.

Excursions are designed to make the most of Príncipe’s pristine natural world, and include birdwatching, rainforest hikes, trips by pirogue to see whales and plantation tours. As the hotel is owned by HBD, making it a sister property of Sundy Praia, Roca Sundy and Omali, guests can be assured of high caliber service and comfort.

With the eagerly-awaited reopening in 2024, scuba diving will once again be offered on Principe.
