Stellar Lodge & Apartments in Takoradi is very well situated to accommodate families and international business travelers who demand cleanliness, modern fixtures and appliances and reliable internet. An extra plus for this location is having the Champs Bar & Restaurant on the premises as well as a Stellar Foods shop, where one can find top quality imported food products.
Having undergone a recent overhaul, you can see at every juncture that their guest's safety is top priority. Staff all seemed very well trained, professional and responsive to guest’s needs.
Bathrooms are all modern, with a nice hot shower and generously stocked with good smelling shower gels. Nice large plasma TVs and a comfy king sized bed. I had a pleasant surprise to find that my room remained cool long after AC switched off. An extra treat in West Africa!
Apartments are comfortably furnished, with a terrace overlooking the pool. The gym was clean and well polished, with state of the art equipment and almost every type of weight and device you can imagine. This place is an excellent choice for a home away from home while working in or visiting Takoradi.

Ghana is a big country, so to find the all of the premium locations, sometimes one must rely on recommendations from friends with impeccable taste. Following expert advice, I took the solo drive from Accra to Axim in search of the destination that has received the most praise in recent months, Lou Moon Lodge.
Suffice it to say, after a seemingly endless and at times bumpy drive from Accra to Axim, (not far from the border of Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire),arriving at the Lou Moon Lodge was worth every single second of the trip.
Once on the grounds you are face to face with a gorgeous bay to your left and the bountiful waves of the Atlantic Ocean to your right. There are only 9 guest rooms situated in 3 areas, Hillside (standard), Bayside (superior) and the crème de la crème, the Island (premium).
Tastefully designed using local natural materials, and intended to be a place to truly get away from it all, you feel an almost instant sense of tranquility and relaxation once you encounter the powerful beauty of the natural location and the quiet professionalism of the staff.
Treat yourself to two or three days in this magnificent resort. Sign up for AccraPremium mailings to be informed of upcoming weekday special packages at Lou Moon Lodge.

If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Ghana's Oil City, Takoradi, for good food and a truly international sports bar experience, pop into the Champs Bar and Restaurant located on the grounds of the Stellar Lodge and Apartments.
Arriving there on a Friday night, I was pleasantly surprised at the vibrant and fun atmosphere inside and out of the Bar. Inside there was the typical bustling bar scene with supersized HD plasma screens all around, pool tables and patrons galore. Outside there was a lovely garden area designed as a convenient area for smokers or those wanting to quietly socialize outdoors.
By a quick survey of a few patrons, their most popular offerings are the Chicken Wings (you can get them Suicide Hot, Medium or Mild) and the Pizza. I was very happy that I did not skip breakfast the next morning because it was simply delicious, with everything prepared exactly the way I like. If I had known in advance it would taste as good as it did, I would have taken a picture to share with you! Next time, I promise!
They also have a charming new restaurant equipped with projector screens for convenient use as a meeting or conference space.
Missing their breakfast today! - Melissa
