This gorgeous boutique hotel is a quiet and stylish escape close to the centre of Osu. It continues to expand – they’ve recently added another eight rooms to the complex, including two apartments. Bedrooms have large beds and muted tones of chocolate and cream. The hotel itself is an immediately relaxing place. A modest plant-fringed pool is overlooked by a high terrace perfect for parties and event – in fact, it’s a great place to spend a lazy Sunday (shhhh) – and the whole place basks in a classy European feel. Style pervades every element, even the rate card comes in the form of a tiny brown scroll tied with string, and while the prices may seem high, they’re often cheaper than the big hotels, just as importantly, the place couldn’t be more inviting. There is the possibility of negotiating on the price a bit, especially over stays of a few days. The overall appeal is topped off by an onsite Italian restaurant, Soprano, open 6am-11.30pm. It’s cosy, welcoming and has a menu brimming with classic pool-side Mediterranean favourites.
