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.
