Beautiful beaches, turquoise waters, endless sunshine, and luxury 5-star service – the White Sands Hotel & Spa on the tropical archipelago of Cape Verde is set to be the very embodiment of relaxation and romanticism when the doors open late next year. The latest development from The Resort Group PLC, the White Sands Hotel and Spa is designed for unforgettable experiences that couples will treasure for the rest of their lives – and it couldn’t be more perfectly situated.

Hailed around the world as the “new Caribbean”, Cape Verde forms as a scattering of Islands and Islets about 300 miles off the coast of West Africa. Just a six-hour flight from the UK, all who seek the beauty of the sea, breath-taking landscapes, and endless stretches of glistening white sands to enjoy with that special someone in their lives will find the perfect getaway on Cape Verde.

The Islands’ undiscovered feel, combined with the inimitable Cape Verdean hospitality, stunning landscapes and seascapes, rich culture and abundance of fine dining experiences have long made Cape Verde the idyllic destination for couples in search of a secret paradise to indulge in together – and when the White Sands Hotel & Spa opens, the finishing touches on this already-perfect picture will be complete.

A Resort Built for Luxury

An undiscovered world of pure relaxation, superior service, and world-class Resort facilities, the White Sands Hotel & Spa awaits couples to make special memories that will last a lifetime. Thoughtfully split into family-friendly and adults-only sections, lovebirds will make their dreams come true in the latter as they are showered with experiences that are tailored just for them.

Six swimming pools glisten beneath golden sunshine, and they come complete with swim-up bars serving tropical cocktails and ice-cold beverages for the ultimate in relaxation. Four themed restaurants offering a range of fine-dining experiences create the perfect atmosphere for candlelit dinners doused with fine wines and sumptuous fare. A stylish champagne bar, relaxing lobby bar, lively sports bar, and a vibrant nightclub allow couples to choose the thrust of their evenings, be it for music, dancing, or romantic quietude where only the two of you exist beneath the sunset and the stars as you sip champagne on the terrace.


And let’s not forget the luxurious YHI Spa experience that will revitalise your senses after a day spent in friendly competition and excitement at the on-site tennis courts, fitness centre or water sports centre. At YHI, a spoilt-for-choice range of treatments and rituals combine in a space dedicated to the regeneration of the senses and purification of the body, creating a world of absolute peace and relaxation – just for the two of you.

Beautiful Beaches, Turquoise Waters, Unforgettable Memories…

The White Sands Hotel & Spa resides on the Island of Boa Vista, which translates from the Portuguese for “beautiful view” – an apt description for this most opulent Resort. Almost every property in the White Sands Hotel & Spa is blessed with a panoramic sea view, with the sugar-white sands of Santa Monica Beach just footsteps away. Though Boa Vista is the third-largest Island in the archipelago, it is also the least populated, meaning that couples are easily able to seek absolute privacy to enjoy the sun, the sea, and the 55km of white sands that wrap around the Island’s shores.

And your long, romantic walks need not be limited to the beach. Boa Vista has much to discover. The Island’s Capital, Sal Rei, is a shining example of a traditional Cape Verdean town. A cosy place, lined with characteristic cobbled streets, there is an abundance of cafes, bars and local restaurants to discover, all of which offer many different choices of cuisine, including Creole and Portuguese specialities to give you a real taste of Cape Verde’s captivating fusion of cultures.


And for the more adventurous couples, a variety of exhilarating activities are easily sought. Windsurfing and kitesurfing opportunities beckon both amateurs looking to ride their first wave, as well as those with existing experience. And from sailing the waves to diving beneath them, snorkelling and scuba diving adventures open up new majesties as you explore the turquoise depths bubbling with reefs, wrecks and sea life. Back on dry land, the two of you can then take to the sand dunes on quad bikes to experience Boa Vista with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face.
