Luxury in the Clouds.

Luxury in the Clouds.

Ever thought of a hospitality experience in the clouds with greenery spreads over rolls of mountains? Then you are probably about to discover a precinct in Ghana.
It has perhaps not captured much attention but it is a harbinger of Volta's hospitality industry charting a staggering path for others to follow. 
It is the Weta Mountains or the Kabakaba Hills located at the uphill of the Volta Regional Capital, Ho. The mountains which stretches from the northeastern part of the capital to the northwestern and seemingly kissing the heavens, provides a soothing environment worth experiencing.
A look at the mountains over one’s head capture a pleasing view of magnificent buildings in a foliage with clouds meandering over the terraced structures. 
   A more fascinating experience is a night view at foothills when the rays of glittering stars beam with the lights from the buildings uphill.
It is no wonder, the mad rush for lands at that part of the city. 

Investors, who acquired these lands, mostly invest in the hospitality industry.
Chains of Hotels spring up on the hills where irresistible treats await guests.  
Some of the prestigious Hotels in the Volta Region are up there in the clouds. Volta Serene, Skyplus, African Hill Resort and Fred’s Kitchen and Wellness are among the facilities soaring in the clouds.
Weta hills indeed an exciting space in Ghana to enjoy good moments and it presents a perfect setting to explore nature. The topography of the area provides a thrilling environment for hiking and camping.
At one side are the lush view of the Ho Township and the panoramic view of Adaklu Mountains which is at the hips of the City. From the other end, one could see a serene view of Klefe and its spouting waterfalls. A less than 30 minutes’ drive from hill could land you in Amedzorfe; the highest points of human settlements in Ghana. The town with its temperate weather has another thrilling experience that could be told another day.
On the Weta( Kabakaba hills), one feels closer to the heavens. And it could be a reason churches pitch camps in the forest to meditate.
But as the development sprout in the greenbelt, there are concerns over its threats on the ecological system. Obviously there is a need to merge the development and deforestation through policies that could satisfy all competing interests. And it behoves on City Authorities to show the way.

I'm particularly enthused by the luxury I see in the clouds on the Weta Hills and I see this as a goldmine in Volta Tourism about to be fully harnessed.
As Ho gradually becomes a City of Choice for persons that need time away from the buzzing Cities, I recommend the Clouds for the next guest.
