Hotel Sundy Praia

A charming, beachfront boutique resort nestled in lush tropical foliage with stream, Sundy Praia boasts a dramatically designed fine dining restaurant, infinity swimming pool, lively snack bar and opulently appointed tented villas. The service is keen (although some staff don’t speak much English) and the comfort levels stratospheric.
The sea is safe for bathing with no waves or biting creatures; very family friendly. Breakfasts are delicious buffets and dinners are all superb, often taking the form of tasting menus.
A range of room options: eight standard tented villas (not beachfront), and five double tented villas and two triple tented villas, all beachfront with private pools. Each villa has granite bathtub, double bed, fully stocked minibar, a/c,

If budget allows, upgrade to a beautiful beachfront villa. These come as two or three bungalows arranged around a large, private swimming pool. The resort will not put strangers together in the beachfront villas, which are best used for small groups of friends and family, so if it’s just a couple they will have the pool to themselves.
