Located in the Gulf of Guinea off the equatorial West African coast, Africa’s second smallest country offers a wonderful choice for those looking for a refreshingly off-grid destination.
You’ll find a tropical climate with white sandy beaches and lush rainforests inhabited by fascinating wildlife and birds, including some of the world's rarest species.
We can arrange guided bird walks, scuba and snorkel excursions to secluded bays, plus waterfall hikes and nature trails for the active honeymooners.
Although you’ll spend plenty of time on the picturesque beaches of Sao Tome & Principe, the country also offers a myriad of adventures into their rich culture and history. Explore grand colonial houses, a reminder of the former Portuguese occupation, and tour the gorgeous coffee and cocoa plantations.
Meet the owner of a chocolatier to learn his process and taste home grown cocoa, and discover the hidden corners of Santo António, the smallest capital of the world, where you can observe organic farming, experience a myriad of aromas and tastes, and enjoy a traditional meal together.
You’ll also venture out on a plantations tour where you’ll learn the secrets of organic farming at the plantation house called Roca Paciencia. You'll savour aromatic herbs and medicinal plants, visit the gardens and see how the products are transformed into delicious jams, tropical muesli and beauty products.
Throughout your honeymoon, you’ll be staying in the country’s most romantic luxury hotels and resorts, including Praia Sundy Lodge, one of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, and Roca Sundy, a beautiful boutique hotel set on a former plantation.
You’ll be staying in the top room in each lodge, including the Honeymoon Suite at Omali Lodge on Sao Tome Island, a luxury tented villa at Praia Sundy Lodge, and the Plantation House Master Suite at Roca Sundy.
At Wayfairer, we acknowledge how important and special your honeymoon is and will take the time to carefully plan your honeymoon with you. We pride ourselves on ensuring that no element is overlooked to ensure that your start to married life is flawless.
