Very nice set-up of rooms, restaurant and pebble beach area in fantastic location; including sun loungers, canoes for rent, etc. All small scale and quiet as not too many rooms and each having won front porch, with lake view. Owner (Slovenian) really wants to make the best of it and goes through efforts to make your stay perfect. Rooms have... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in the small, cozy Bungalow and loved our stay! We did everything from swimming, hiking, horseback riding, lounging and relaxing. We are in our 70ties and outdoors lovers, this was what we were looking for in Ghana. The environs are beautiful and the air is clean, no Mosquitoes, not even at night! The... More

Remote destination, the 5 kilometer on poorer road worth. Beautiful, tranquil location on lake Botsomtwe. Very friendly owners, well-kept rooms and plumbing. True B & B atmosphere. Opportunities for activities on the lake and land. We only had 2 nights. We could therefore not fully enjoy this beautiful place and possibilities around. A must for everyone visiting the region of... More

We have stayed in most of the resorts up and down the Ghanian coast, for a change we went inland to lake Bosomtwi. Cocoa village is rustic and laid back and has the best service in Ghana. You know what I mean, order your food two hours before you need it. Not here, I ordered pancakes for the children for... More

The guest house is located in a very secluded part of the lake, thus very quiet and perfect for a relaxing week-end. The hosts are lovely and the food was simple but very good. The rooms are well decorated by Kasia, artist. The owner was kind enough to drive us to Kumasi on his way there. Will definitely come back.

A charming and relaxing space which is well worth the effort to get to. Perfect place to unwind after a stay in Kumasi. The owners are lovely and welcoming, as well as excellent cooks - home made pasta for our first meal. If we had known how nice it would be, I am certain we would have stayed for more... More

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
