Praia Sundy

Sheltering between dense, tropical forest and a pristine golden beach, this is a place to unwind, a place to breathe, stirred by the rhythm of sea and sand. Caressed by warm sea breezes, rich with forest scent, it is a place to awaken the senses, a place to be.

About the Destination

tented villas

Merging seamlessly with their forest surrounds, our 15 tented-villas lie hidden among a scattering of tropical almond and banana trees, each gaz down to the sea. With weathered wood panelling and timber decks, the distinctive tented-villas echo the style of the fishermen’s huts that once stood this spot, just back from the beach.

Inside, the decor beguiles with its eye-catching mix of handcrafted local artefacts and designer pieces, achieving perfect balance between desi comfort and nature. Each tent has spacious indoor and outdoor areas, including private terraces; each of our three-bedroom tented-villas has its private pool.

Sustainability

Lying in perfect isolation some 130 miles off the West African coast, Principe’s forests shelter an abundance of endemic birds and plants, rep and amphibians – little wonder the island is sometimes referred to as Africa’s Galapagos.

But this is no desert island: Principe has its people, too, living in the colourful main town, São Antonio, or scattered in pretty fishing vil along the coast. Our goal is to maintain and build harmony between the people and their island, and Praia Sundy is a vital part of that goal, prov a model of sustainable, responsible tourism, with the people of Principe involved at its core.
