A luxe lodge with sustainability at their core
"Take a walk through the dense jungle and listen for the chatter of tropical parrots and monkeys in the canopy above. Príncipe’s rich endemic birdlife, amphibians and plants have earned it the nickname ‘Africa’s Galapagos’."
Sundy Praia is the newest of the three lodges. Sister to larger Bom Bom Island Resort, it is intimate and astonishingly upmarket for such a remote destination with well-appointed tented villas, each with the forest at their back and a glorious sea frontage. Deserving of its 5-star status, the food is equally incredible – seasonal, tropical and proudly African with a Portuguese twist.
It is easy to cocoon yourself in a place so laid back it lends itself to doing nothing, but out and about there are plantations to explore and chocolate to be made (some of the world’s finest originates here) as well as wonderful interactive cooking workshops to take part in. The entire place is a UNESCO biosphere, so you can snorkel, take a boat along the coast to search for dolphins and whales or hike deep into the national park as endemic tropical birds chatter in the trees.
Private Island Escapes
Few things compare to holidaying at a private island resort. If what you’re after is utter seclusion and perfect peace, in a location off-limits to everyone but the staff and perhaps a few other guests, then a private island is the only way to go. Here are a few of our favourites from around the world.
