Takoradi is home to some of Ghana's biggest oil developments. So many of the contractors live in hotels in-and-around Takoradi. Planter's is one of these, but I'm not sure how you would get any work dine while living here. The gardens are lush and beautiful, the pool area instantly relaxing, and the restaurant is delicious. Well worth a visit.

I have stayed in Planter's Lodge twice in 2013 and 2014 during my business trips to Takoradı, Ghana. Hotel is very nice, green, rooms are very big. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really poor, but dinners and room service were really good. Best option in Takoradi. It was nice experience.

The lush pristine greenery of Planter's lodge is so charming and disarming. The stress of the journey or day just melts away at the sight of it. The place is adorably quaint. The tiles and the style of the room furnishings tie into the theme well. I do wish the air conditioner and bathroom plumbing had not made ancient noises... More

This is the second time I've been to the planters, it's such a beautiful hotel, all staff are friendly and nothing is to much trouble for them, the breakfast is first class, there has been so much planning in the way the food is presented and more importantly what goes on your plate, this really is the best place in...

Certainly the best hotel in Takoradi – beautiful surroundings, nice pool and comfortable rooms. Nice and quiet for a drink by the poolside. Management and staff always friendly, ready to help at any time. Excellent service all around. Will definitely go back when on a business trip or even book for a romantic week end.

This is probably the best hotel in Takoradi - lush grounds, good pool and comfortable rooms. However the bed is much too short and I am not a giant! I was in the two room lodge and the a/c in the bedroom only just about covered the other room. The service was good but menu choices were not always there.... More

Takoradi has range of hotels, but Planters is the nicest if you want quiet evenings, there is no loud bar, great poolside for a drink and dinner. Food is of a very high standard, some of the best I have had in Ghana, you do have to wait. Which includes the coffee shop for basic sandwich as they have to... More
