Backed by 16 acres of palm-studded grounds and a sweeping azure pool, Accra’s luxury bolthole remains one of the finest. The rooms, as you’d expect from this Swiss chain, are well designed and appointed – they come highly recommended, but it’s the additional extras that makes this hotel buzz.
Waiters on in-line skates glide across the gleaming patio, supplying fresh snacks and icy drinks to holidaymakers stretched out on loungers around the pool. An onsite luxury shopping centre is filled with high-end goods, from catwalk fashions at Fifth Avenue to Afrocentric art at Joe’s Perspective.
Elsewhere, Sankofa restaurant pleases with an array of international flavours, and the newly-refurbished one2one cocktail lounge expertly whips up any requested tipple.
There’s a superb Deli by the shopping galleries, and the restaurant is becoming popular too. It’s also worth saying that the breakfast is one of the best in the city right now.
For more details on the (excellent) spa, sauna and fitness centre. Be sure not to miss the massage here, staying or not!
