Stylish, comfortable accommodation with first class service and all the mod cons is still hard to find in West Africa away from the large international hotel chains. Savvy travellers heading to Ghana looking for all the *5 comfort in a more intimate setting have discovered this elegant house in Accra. Nana Amu’s bungalow, architecturally designed, stands out as a glossy magazine worthy b&b in the heart of the capital. The interior designer and art collector has created a beautiful space using fabrics and artefacts from Ghana and other West African nations. The bright colourful decor also features lots of wood and glass, producing a zen-like indoor/outdoor aesthetic. It embraces the lush tropical garden complete with a symphony of birds. The good sized bedroom with en-suite bathroom is available with either a king sized bed or two singles. Breakfast is served in the beautiful living room / kitchen area. Nana is a discreet and helpful host, always at hand to assist with any queries and share local tips and recommendations.
Ghana’s most populace city offers an abundance of things to see and do with traditional markets, museums, galleries and a thriving nightlife. Although public funding for the arts in the country is virtually non-existent, those who know where to look will discover a small but flourishing contemporary art scene. Independent art spaces, such as the Nubuke Foundation, promote and support local talent. With similar community based projects springing up in and around Accra, a host with a finger on the artistic pulse is a valuable resource.
