The unique boutique

Located in one of the most desirable residential districts of Ghana’s capital, the Villa Monticello Boutique Hotel surrounds guests with intimate luxury, while never neglecting business necessities


Winning the coveted World Travel Award as Ghana’s leading hotel after being in operation for little over a year is an affirmation that Villa Monticello’s goal of setting a new benchmark for luxury and service in the region is being achieved.

This is a hotel where attention to every detail is the norm, not the exception. Staff will remember not only your name, but also your favourite drink, and nothing is too much trouble. Here, you will instantly feel at home.  Villa Monticello believes that real luxury is personalised, and it will go out of its way to achieve this.

Conveniently located at the Airport Residential Area, Accra, Villa Monticello indulges guests with an unexpected boutique experience that embodies the style, personality and luxury found only in a one-of-a-kind hotel.

Boutique suites
The moment guests are picked up from the nearby international airport in the hotels’ impressive SUV or coupé vehicles, to the moment they leave its stunning décor, high-tech touches and individually customised suites, Villa Monticello breaks the mould of the predictable chain hotel. Its sophisticated ambiance and thoughtful amenities present innumerable possibilities for business or leisure. At check-in guests can take a seat on plush armchairs in the elegant foyer, or enjoy a cocktail in the lounge while they wait to be taken to an immaculately designed suite.

Luxury at every corner
To ensure every guests’ experience is uniquely exceptional, the designers drew inspiration for each suite from famous people and places all over the world. Featuring 14 custom-decorated guestrooms, the hotel has an impressive level of detail – from the rich vibrant colours of the Marrakech suite, to the NYC skyline and downtown feel of the Manhattan suite.

Irrespective of choice, luxury amenities in each guestroom are a constant: Aqua di Parma toiletries, iPod docking stations, hotel-wide free high speed Wi-Fi, Nespresso machines in the presidential suites, flat screen televisions, and luxurious bathing facilities.

Tasteful dining
The collection of suites is only one part of what makes Villa Monticello a delight. The hotel is also home to what is quickly becoming one of Accra’s most popular restaurants – 1A.  The cocktail lounge and restaurant that are located on the ground floor continue the visual elegance synonymous with the hotel. Tastefully decorated and providing an intimate setting for up to 40 guests, walking into 1A is akin to walking into your own private members club, where the quietly attentive staff are always on hand to help. All of the dishes prepared and cooked on site use fresh local and regional ingredients, and the cellar boasts an excellent selection of wines from around the globe.

The View is a two-storey private meeting room facility, overlooking the hotel’s tranquil swimming pool. Guests are granted complimentary usage of the flexible space, which can host any event, whether a two-person business meeting through to a private cocktail party for 25 people. The range of services for business clientele offers the flexibility that many global executives require, without any sacrifice on fundamental quality.

From organising board meetings, last minute flights, round-the-clock dinner menus for jet-lagged guests, or in-suite treatments and personal trainers, the in-house luxury concierge service aims to make things easier for the busy business traveller.
