From the temperature, geographical location, to the colours and exotic fruits, here everything is tropical. Surrender to the charm and natural beauty of this hidden paradise in Africa.
Set between two beaches of emerald green water and sand bleached golden by the sun with tiny perfect shells, the Bom Bom resort is still a well-kept secret in the tropical forest of the Island of Príncipe. Here the real luxury is the genuine warmth of those welcoming you, the luminous simplicity of its rooms, the exotic scents of its flowers and the morning symphony which nature has prepared to awaken you with. Each step across the 140 metre wooden bridge leading to the small islet that lends its name to the hotel inspires a growing sense of wonderment and the promise to return.
Crystal-clear water and an average temperature of 27º C the whole year round is something you can find in several parts of the world … but in Príncipe there is one big difference: a beach almost exclusively for you and the aromas of tropical fruits all around you. Immerse yourself in the green and golden tones of this idyllic setting.
And if rain doesn’t trouble you: try bathing in the sea in the rain!
19 bungalows surrounded by lush tropical forest, right on the beach.
Whether to wake up at the edge of the swimming pool, with a sea view, among tropical trees, or with your feet in the sand is the only difficult decision you will have to make…
Be prepared to wake up early because life will be calling you!

On special days, or simply at low tide, the tables spread out onto the beach and the memories of the flavours will create a lasting impression on your senses.
