THE OWNERS  

Byron and Sonia Lye-Fook were both born 
in Jamaica and went to live in England 
when they were ten years old. They visited 
Ghana in December 1998 and fell in love 
with the place and decided it would be the 
ideal location to spend their retirement.  
They began building The Almond Tree 
Guest House in August 2000 and since then 
have met many challenges and experiences.


Byron and Sonia knew that their coming to
Ghana was indeed a  spiritual journey. 
They believe that all people, especially
those of African Ancestry need to make
at least one Pilgrimage to these historical
sites in order to fully comprehend the impact
of slavery on African people worldwide.    

Sonia is a former primary school teacher who retired in August 2003.  As well as running the guest house
Sonia saw a need to assist in the development of educational standards in the community in which she
now resides, by setting up the Sonibron Education Trust whose aim is to resource a selected number of
 schools in the local community as well as paying school fees for individuals in need.

Byron is coming from a music business background being a former drummer, playing with blues, soul, reggae
and pop bands in the UK.  He is a founder member of the Black Music Association (UK) and Kongo Dance
Records as well as being Managing Director of the music publishing company Congo Music Ltd.  His experience
as an accountant has proved invaluable in the building and running of the guest house.
