We are thrilled to announce that Visit Sierra Leone (VSL) Limited has signed a long-term lease with the Banana Island community to refurbish and rejuvenate the iconic Banana Island Guest House.
Nestled amidst the serene beauty of Banana Island, our commitment to preserving and enhancing this beloved retreat is at the heart of our mission. The Banana Island Guest House holds a special place in the hearts of travelers seeking tranquility and natural beauty, and we’re excited to revitalize this gem for generations to come. It also holds a special place in our heart, having consistently strived to increase awareness of this historic and idyllic site.
Our refurbishment plans include modernizing facilities while preserving the island’s unique charm and ecological integrity.
This endeavor wouldn’t be possible without the support and collaboration of the Banana Island community, and we also recognise the support received from the World Bank via the Sierra Leone Economic Diversification Project who have provided a matching grant for the initial development of the project. We’re grateful for the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with various stakeholders to bring this vision to life.
Stay tuned for updates as we embark on this exciting journey to transform the Banana Island Guest House into a premier destination for travelers seeking relaxation, adventure, and authentic experiences.
