Lou Moon is a luxury “eco” (didn’t see anything eco-friendly though) resort on the shores of Axim, in the Western Region of Ghana. It’s probably too early to call it, but I’ve done 4 reviews this year and this is currently my favourite – It’s a beautiful place with well-kept lawns, trees, and views of the sea and the beautiful Agyan Bay.
Their website describes it as a “jewel of nature” and they absolutely didn’t lie; it’s as perfect as it gets. It’s such an extremely peaceful and quiet place and is easily a favourite for romantic getaways and honeymoons.
The resort is a 100-120 minute drive from the Takoradi airport, and a 10-15 drive from the main road, and they arrange pick-ups from the airport for ¢500 one way and ¢1000 in and out.
The vibe is centred around complete peace and relaxation, so there aren’t many activities outside that. There are a few activities like kayaking, paddle-boating and use of the sport facilities which are free, but the main attraction is the beach and I can’t say it enough, the sea here is just so beautiful. Clear blue water, white sand – it’s such a clean and pure vibe. Clearest and bluest I’ve seen in Ghana. Close to the water’s edge, the sand is a little more coarse than regular beach sand and there are flat rocks in the seabed which might be a little slippery, so remember to watch your step. There is no public pool – the only ones available are private ones in the island villas.
The resort is open to a limited number of day visitors (40) per day and you’ll need to book a day pass in advance. It costs ¢150, and ¢100 from that amount goes towards your bill at the end of the day, whether at the restaurant, a paid activity/service or for something from the giftshop, so essentially its ¢50. Kayaking, paddle-boating and use of the facilities for things like tennis and volleyball are all free with the pass, just like they are for residents.
