Welcome to Axim Beach Resort
The Axim Beach Hotel is situated on a huge palm covered tropical hillside that overlooks kilometres of deserted beaches. The hotel offers guests the opportunity to experience accommodation with traditional African characteristics in architecture, interior design and decoration.
The inspiration to open a hotel with chalets built from traditional African loam building methods dates back to over 18 years ago. A Ghanaian style of building round shaped huts has been in existence for several hundred years.
When Mr Jonas Tettey, the director left Ghana to travel throughout South East Asia, he encountered how other cultures were using traditional building techniques to construct simple huts, and in doing so he developed an understanding of how Africa could harness the potential to utilise traditional building methods and materials for tourist accommodation. It was during this period that the comcept of Axim Beach Hotel was born.
The result – a palm covered oasis, surrounded by beautiful beaches that has found the balance between the natural environment and the requirements of clientele using a traditional and close to nature design.
The hotel recognises the importance of sustainable tourism industry for Ghana and as such has adopted environmentally friendly practices such as solar hot water and the use of bore water for facilities and where possible using recycled materials. And of course, the traditionally designed buildings employ environmentally friendly construction practices. The hotel employs all local staff, purchases local products and contributes to community projects in the Axim town.
