Home to soul-stirring basalt peaks, some of the most biodiverse rainforests on the planet, golden beaches, and spirited communities who are deeply connected with the natural environment, the islands of São Tomé and Príncipe are truly special. With coordinates 1ºN, 7ºE, you are as close as possible to the center of the world.
The importance of conserving and respecting the world’s wildest places, and the need for sustainable development, positively affecting people and place, has never been more apparent.
These sentiments provided the foundations of HBD Príncipe, a sustainable ecotourism and agroforestry company, when it was founded more than a decade ago, and remain a driving force today.
Working with the government of São Tomé and Príncipe, and the island communities, we are dedicated to the conservation of Príncipe Island, a precious UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. By creating responsible ecotourism experiences, and championing intentional, sustainable development, HBD helps to provide enriching opportunities to those who call Príncipe home, without damaging culture, traditions, or the island’s fragile natural environment.
The service and great attitude of the staff made our day.
Perfection in paradise
The setting is amazing, the accommodation is amazing, the service is amazing and the food is amazing. Staff go out of their way to ensure that everything is beyond perfect for their guests. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.
World class. Spectacular hotel in fabulous setting. Just a magical experience. The staff just goes above and beyond with every encounter.
Looking for paradise? Look no more!
Fantastic Eco Resort right in front of the beach built to be invisible in the middle of the jungle. Top service at the same time professional and highly friendly. It really shows how nice the people are.The ecological footprint is as small as possible. Great half day programs to get to know all the fantastic treasures of this paradise island. Unmissable!
