A stylish boutique hotel, Omali Lodge is the only 4* hotel on São Tomé and sits right on a lovely beach just outside São Tomé Town centre. The lodge has just undergone a change of management and we are extremely excited about their plans for the future.

At present there are 30 comfortable and air-conditioned suites in total, dotted around the swimming pool and tennis court in palm-filled gardens behind the beach.

The beautiful Ôbo National Park is nearby, where we can arrange for dugout canoe trips with local fishermen through the mangrove forests along the coast. Other activities include visiting the Carlos Corrales chocolate factory (mmmm); the town of Sao Joao dos Angolares, founded by escaped slaves in the 15th century; and the Roca Sao Joao, renowned for having the best food in the country, using local herbs and spices and fruit.

Facilities at Omali include a full equipped gym, tennis court and swimming pool with pool bar.
