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

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

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!
