Odjo D agua Hotel

On a private beach with a sandside bar, the Odjo d’Agua Hotel sits on a dainty peninsula with the awe-inspiring views of an idyllic paradise.

The family-run hotel has an uber-friendly welcome and Instagram-worthy split-level pool framed by colourful shrubs. No matter where you choose to paddle, you’ll be greeted by panoramic views of the sea.

For food, the restaurant serves buffet breakfasts and swaps to a la carte for lunch and dinner. There’s also a patio for those decadent al fresco meals in the sunshine.

Overview of Sal

The Odjo d’Agua Hotel is in an ideal spot if you want a sun-drenched holiday to Cape Verde.

The island of Sal is one of the most popular in the Cape Verde Islands. Named after the salt mines you see carved into the landscape, Sal gets over 350 days of sunshine each year and with year-round warm weather guaranteed.

You’ll fall in love with the white-sand beaches that are packed with adrenaline-pumping activities. The constant wind makes Sal a mecca for water sports – and helps to keep the heat at bay when you’re relaxing on the beach.

Things to do in Sal

Life in Sal revolves around the beach and, with a stay at the Odjo d’Agua Hotel, you’re well-placed to enjoy the glorious white sands that are literally on the doorstep.

Away from the stunning beach fronts, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. Venture to the Viveiro Botanical Garden, where you’ll discover over 100 species of plant and a petting zoo.

For something more relaxing, take a trip to Pedra de Lume. At this extinct volcano, there’s a crater filled with salt water, so you can get some of that Dead-Sea floating action – in the middle of the Atlantic.

When you visit Sal, you’ll encounter a home away from home. After a stay at the family-run Odjo d’Agua Hotel, you’ll want to return time and time again. The staff will be waiting for you with a smile if you do.

Resort Summary

Named for the salt mines carved into its landscape, the island of Sal – which means ‘salt’ in Portuguese – is one of the most sought-out islands of Cape Verde’s 10-part family. Its trademark look is characterised by beaches that look like they’re straight out of the Sahara Desert, its volcanic landscape and colourful buildings speckling city streets.

The beaches aren’t the only thing to marvel at – Sal is full of natural wonders, from spooky mirages to salt-soaked pools. Strong winds make it a haven for watersport junkies while soft sands bring in a fleet of loggerhead turtles every year. Couples looking for quiet beach days and those with other interests won’t have trouble enjoying it either.
