‘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. Judging by the Range Rovers lined up outside, it’s pretty exclusive. It takes around an hour to reach from Accra (although road improvements mean this time will reduce), but it’s worth the drive. You’ll find eight villas, each with three bedrooms, a living area, jacuzzi and patio – they’re well-appointed and tastefully decorated. The property also has a conference suite seating around 24 (corporate groups being one of the main income streams here), and a gorgeous pool overlooking the valley. The open club house and restaurant above the pool are lovely spots to watch the clouds roll out in the morning, or listen to the sounds of the bush in the evening. It’s all built on a hill, so you’ll be working off the food from a menu that includes lamb tagine, T-bone steak, paella and traditional Ghanaian food. There’s a spa and a tennis court too.
