Located in Accra, Villa Monticello is Ghana’s first luxury boutique hotel and one of the most awarded hotels in West Africa. It recently celebrated its 5th year anniversary as a popular destination for travellers, weddings, corporate events and video shoots.

The World Travel Awards winner has actively contributed to the transformation of Ghana’s tourism industry.

“We couldn’t have come this far without our dedicated team and loyal guests. When we first launched in 2011, the boutique hotel concept was very new to Accra, but was received well by international travellers and business executives who preferred an intimate luxury experience,” says Laurie Awotwi, CEO of Villa Monticello.

“Our vision of bringing excellence in hospitality, customer service, design, and fine dining we enjoyed in some of our favourite hotels around the world to Ghana has been validated by repeat customers and the numerous awards we have been honoured to receive over the past five years.”

Villa Monticello is acclaimed for its collection of 16 custom-decorated luxury suites, each of which offer intricate details and modern design elements. Inspiration for the suites have been taken from people and places, including Nelson Mandela, Kwame Nkrumah, Provence, Soho (New York City), and Marrakesh.

“As the only wholly Ghanaian-owned and majority woman-owned luxury hotel in Ghana, we are committed to playing a role in building bridges in the business and local community at large, which is reflected in our partnerships with Moet Chandon, Land Rover, and Jaguar and programmes such as The Lady, empowering young Ghanaian women for success,” says Awotwi.
