Ouidah 2020: Wellness Weekend

Sometime in 2018, I stumbled upon The Ouidah Lakehouse and after sharing pictures of it on Twitter, I took a trip with 5 other amazing women to spend a few nights there. It was the best part of my entire year.

In April this year, the owner, José sent me a video highlighting the major changes he made to the Lakehouse and I knew I just had to visit again. This time, I get to carry YOU along to have the most relaxing weekend and time of your life.

The Ouidah Lakehouse is located in the beautiful, tropical country of Benin, an 8-hour drive from Lagos. It is a picturesque 3-bedroom cabin nestled between the sea and a lagoon. Between getting free massages with a glass of wine, midnight karaoke sessions, kayaking, walks to the beach and Netflix/chilling, you’re guaranteed to have a relaxing and fun weekend.
