Tented Villas

One Bedroom

These simple but distinctive tented villas are the ultimate romantic hideaway for two.

Two Bedrooms

Where families or friends can come together under the billowing canvas canopy.

Three Bedrooms

Swim in the private pool, or relax on squishy sofas under the billowing canvas canopy

Merging seamlessly with their forest surrounds, our 15 tented-villas lie hidden among a scattering of tropical almond and banana trees, each gazing 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 at 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 design, comfort and nature. Each tent has spacious indoor and outdoor areas, including private terraces; each of our three-bedroom tented-villas has its own private pool.

Once part of the second largest cocoa plantation on Principe, this leafy sanctuary exists in perfect harmony with its forest surrounds. The scent of tropical flowers lies rich and heavy on the air, the lush forest canopy is alive with the chatter of parrots and weavers, kingfishers and monkeys. Beyond the beaches, where turtles sometimes come ashore to nest, humpback whales are a common summer sight, drawn with their calves to the warm, sheltered waters of the bay.
