Love this place. It's name says it all. Once you arrive you won't want to leave. The beach is beautiful and nearby villages of Butre and Busua are worth a wander too. Apart from that, get yourself a coconut cocktail, have a banana pizza and swing in your hammock to the sound of the waves.

What a magical place. The setting is so beautiful on a wonderful long bay lined by coconut palms. I camped here in the gardens, very lovely spot and a reasonable rate. Staff are great, and the food is good quality and decent portions. There are a number of rooms all set back behind the restaurant area in very lush gardens.... More

The staff is friendly, the food is good and the prices reasonable. Furthermore, the Hideout has something most places in Ghana do NOT...LOCATION. The beach is protected so the bay is safe for swimming. Want to change the routine, walk down the beach path to the Green Zion (just follow the path off the beach after the school) for pancakes...

We were there twice for a few days. The rooms are simple but good and the whole place is really nicely matched with the beach. We had a small hut and the beach was at our doorstep. The cool breeze made the temperature in the rooms really good even without using a fan. The beach is quiet and clean. Good... More

The Hideout Lodge is the perfect beach retreat. Not only is the location perfect, but the prices are very honest as well. We found this place the best value for money we encoutered during our three weeks in Ghana. Hideout Lodge is located right at the beach a few hundred meters from the town of Butre. It benefits from a... More

Ellis Hideout is easier to get to rom the West now there's a bridge to the village across the river - so you don't need to get there from Busua by canoe. (The bridge may not last for long however.) Once there, enjoy what the Hideout offers - remote, beautiful beach, a few chalets in need of some attention, good... More

Hideout Lodge in Butre, Ghana near Busua: Stayed in several places along the coast during our recent trip to Ghana and this was one of our favorites. We were able to book a very reasonably-priced room over the phone with the manager, George, the evening before we arrived. In a relatively accessible location, we arrived by taxi from Agona Junction... More

Days spent at this very close to my heart Hideout lodge, which is situated between two pocket sized villages, were filled with sun, even though it was mostly cloudy during our trip. The clean sandy beach is breathtaking and ideal for sun bathing and lazy relaxing with a good book (which you can borrow or trade at the small library... More
