Honeymoon at Lou Moon
Lou Moon Lodge is located on the edge of Agyan village, near Axim, in Ghana’s Western Region. It’s approximately one hour’s drive from Takoradi. With its spectacular natural beauty, relaxed upmarket boutique accommodation, personalised service, and Ghana’s only private beach and bay, Lou Moon is about as close to paradise as you can get.
Guests reviewing the lodge often mention its serene setting, and frequently compliment the staff on the excellent service they provide. One thing that some people complain about is having to travel down a short piece of very uneven road, just before Agyan village, on the way to the lodge. Unfortunately the maintenance of this section of road is outside the lodge’s control. However, 4×4 vehicles can easily manage it, and the lodge is happy to arrange a transfer from Takoradi airport in their air-conditioned 4×4.
Although it’s a small hotel, Lou Moon Lodge offers a range of accommodation. You can choose a cosy en-suite hill-side room, a spacious suite with stunning views across Lou Moon Bay, or a lavish island villa with private infinity pool overlooking the sea. The open-air dining and bar area takes full advantage of the cool sea breeze and boasts 180 degree views across the lodge’s perfectly manicured gardens and out to sea.
A number of complimentary activities are available including archery, kayaking, hiking, volleyball, boules, football, and table tennis. Optional paid activities include a professional massage, a boat ride out to sea (where you may be fortunate enough to see passing whales or orcas), and trips to nearby UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Axim Fort and Nzulezo village on stilts.
Lou Moon’s private beach and private natural bay are its centrepiece, and worth the trip alone. There is no public access to the bay or beach at all, making this the only hotel with a truly private beach area in all of Ghana. The bay provides shelter from strong waves and currents to create the perfect calm natural swimming pool. Take a dip in the cool water, relax under an umbrella on one of the hotels hand-crafted wooden sun loungers, or choose a free activity such as kayaking or beach volleyball. The choice is yours.
Both the beach and bay are routinely swept for litter and kept spotlessly clean. Also, the dense vegetation surrounding the lodge provides natural screening from the nearby village, which adds to the its secluded and private feel. Drinks and snacks are available at the beach on request.
Food and drinks: Lou Moon’s cuisine is French-inspired and of a very high standard. Their chef uses only the best local, fresh, and sustainable ingredients with many of the herbs and vegetables grown in Lou Moon’s garden, and fish sourced from local fishermen. One of the bar’s delicious alcoholic or non-alcoholic signature cocktails makes the perfect accompaniment to the golden glow of a magnificent sunset over the sea.

+ Cocktail / mocktail drinks on arrival.
+ A romantic dinner for two on the beach with a bottle of sparkling wine.
+ A relaxing massage for two at the beach (subject to availability).
