Treat your body at Mövenpick Marn-Dah Spa

The Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel has one of the best sports facilities in the city right now. Its hugely inviting pool is a great way to cool down on hot days (that’s to say every day), with comfy chairs and waiters on inline skates to whizz you round a cold drink. The pool itself is large, with a good shallow end for children, and wide enough to do a few token lengths. It’s in the middle of the city, but you’d barely realise. It costs GH¢40 Mon-Fri and GH¢60 at the weekend. The gym, overlooking the pool on the second floor of the hotel, is well equipped with all you’d expect, and friendly personal trainers are on hand if you need a bit of advice or impetus. There’s a spa and two Thai massage treatment rooms with outstanding masseurs, plus a sauna. It offers a comprehensive range of membership packages depending on the level of access you want. ‘Platinum’ includes access to the gym, pool, tennis courts and sauna, as well as a massage.
