It's time for a little bit of luxury in some resorts out of town. These are the best, as voted for in our Rate Your City campaign
The Royal Senchi Resort is a bold undertaking; a largely thatched 84-room complex with facilities for large conferences just west of the town of Akosombo.
Those willing to splash some cash for the millionaire treatment can stay at this deluxe private members’ club near Fetteh.
*Time Out Accra review soon* Blue Diamond Beach Spa Resort say: Blue Diamond Beach Spa Resort currently includes - 10 sea view chalets and 1 suite. - A professional camping ground with a BBQ, shawarma grill and African Kitchen. -
We were rather taken aback by Aqua Safari. It faces out to the estuary of the River Volta, a mile or so upstream from the ocean. From an open-sided restaurant and bar you can see Ghana’s island-dwelling folk crab-fishing and clam-diving in the water.
‘Hidden away’ doesn’t really do justice to the location here. This smart new villa complex in the lush folds of the hills around Aburi isn’t somewhere you’d stumble across – it’s only accessible via a long and winding road, and that’s just how the owners want it.
There’s no missing the 100-room Atlantic Hotel, a huge white monolith overlooking the ocean around Takoradi. The rooms in the main building are modern and well-appointed – ask for one with ocean views.
