Roça Belo Monte Hotel - logo


Príncipe Island is situated off the coast of West Central Africa and forms part of the twin island state of São Tome & Príncipe. With its small, charming population and heart-warming culture, the island is ready to share its rich history and breathtakingly beautiful surroundings with the discerning traveler. As the closest tropical paradise to Europe, crime free and unaffected by political and religious instability, this safe and unspoiled island is mainly covered by thickly forested area that forms part of the Obo National Park (with the dramatic peaks and slopes one can expect a true Jurassic Park experience), cascading down to some of the most idyllic beaches in the world.

Roça Belo Monte

The friendly and professional service, true heart-warming hospitality and a practical yet passionate conservation approach will ensure an unforgettable and life enriching experience in one of the most unique places in the world.
