We stayed here for two great nights near the end of a trip in Ghana, the owners were very welcoming and helpful, and our experience was great! The room, the lake, the food, the activities (we went paddle boarding, had a look at the library/art room, and went horse riding at a nearby place) were all wonderful. The floor got... More

We have been here with two friends for 1 night and we really enjoyed our stay. You can do a lot of things around the lake, since the lake is clean and safe to swim or you could rent a canoe. Furthermore, you can also hike and go on a horse ride, organized by another guesthouse, or just relax the... More

Lake Bosumtwi is so mistic and Cocoa Village is so nice ... I stayed there few days in Dec.2013 and Dec.2014 and enjoyed very much. Tjaša and Matevž, who are managing it, they had time for us, turists. We went together to the top of the crater, around the lake 36 km, to the nearest villages to see how people... More

The owners are.. Slovenian.. Meeting with them and hearing their african stories may be even more rawarding than your stay in Ghana.. They are really experienced travellers in Africa and even crossed some counrties on bike. It was one of our most beautiful encounters in this country. They give out their hearts for you. Great hospitality and, which is worth... More

This place is an awesome location with overwhelming nature. I can highly recommend this place, not only because of the nature. The staff is very helpful and both manager are very friendly. You can talk and also drink your beer with them. They make this place adorable!

Incredible place, perfect views, clean lovely huts, amazing food, friendly couple running it could not do more for you -the art work is impressive. I will definitely go back and it's a... More

Don't be deterred by 5 km of pretty bad road from Abono, for this place is a real gem. It's beautifully located by the lake, one of the very few places in Ghana where one can safely and seriously swim. Mattheus and Tjasha are perfect hosts and great fun, very knowledgeable about the country at large and the area, with... More

The place is really one of the nicest places I've seen in Ghana so far. You can see there has been put a lot of love and care in every detail and Matthias and Kiasha really make you feel so welcome and go out of their way to make you as comfortable as possible. The location is a bit difficult... More

Beautiful but somewhat remote location yet more than worth the effort of getting there. Yes it has basic accommodations but very clean And comfortable with gracious hosts. Meals quite good n i love that they serve local food sometimes with a twist. Go if u want a memorable and different one of a kind experience ... peaceful n spiritual too

Had a great stay at Cocoa village and would highly recommend this place for anyone travelling in the area. Beautiful, warm lake where you can swim and use paddle boats. Very peaceful surroundings and the owners were very pleasant and accommodating. I have been to Ghana 7 times now and would definitely make another trip to Cocoa village in the... More
