16 Best places to stay in Ghana for every budget

When looking for accommodation in Ghana, it might be hard to find places outside Accra so I would recommend using Booking.com for short stays and Airbnb for longer stays.

There is a hotel for every traveller with prices ranging from as low as $20/ night to over $200 a night. I will include 4 options for luxury, budget and mid-range travellers.

best places to stay in Ghana - Hillburi resort, eastern region
  • Aqua Safari Resort – If you’re looking for an all-inclusive resort in Ghana with various activities, this is it. You can jet ski, waterski and go hot air ballooning (the first experience of its kind in Ghana). It’s located in Ada, Greater Accra, where the water is calm and the atmosphere is serene.
  • Hillburi Resort – This is a stunning resort located in the mountains of Aburi in the Easter Region. If you don’t have the budget to stay for a night, you can spend the day here and it’s just as amazing. I had lunch here after visiting Asenema Falls and Aburi Botanical Gardens and it’s a great way to unwind and enjoy the infinity pool.
  • Zaina Lodge – Safari and luxury all rolled into one. Mole National Park is Ghana’s only National Park in the Northern Region. The park is home to over 600 Elephants and Zaina Lodge is at the centre of it. From the lodge, you have a clear view of the watering hole which the Elephants use to escape the heat of the African sun. It’s on my bucket list of stays and I hope I get the opportunity to visit soon.
  • Lou Moon Resort – The Western Region has some of the most stunning beaches in Ghana and Lou Moon was built with its private access. The rooms each come with its own private plunge pool and personal butler, if you’re looking for the ultimate luxury beach resort experience in Ghana, this is where you need to be.
  • Mole Motel – If you plan on visiting Mole National Park but don’t have the budget for Zaina Lodge, staying in Mole Motel for as low as $50 a night is the next best option. It’s on the same property as the Park so, not only do you get to stay in a Lodge with stunning views but you can also see the animals (Elephants, Antelopes, Baboons and Warthogs) at your convenience.
  • Ahanta Eco Lodge – This Eco Lodge is located in Busua in the Western Region along Ghana’s stunning coastline. It’s also a surf camp so with a room going for as low as $35 a night, it’s a fair trade.
  • Jeyads Lodge – Unlike Accra, Tamale doesn’t have many hotels to choose from, so this hotel is one of the best. A standard room which I stayed in costs $70 a night and comes with a free breakfast. It’s very basic so don’t expect anything more than a bed and bathroom.
  • Urbano Hotel – This hotel has the famous 3D “ I love Accra” sign in front of it. It’s a mix of classic and modern and the cheapest room (standard single room without breakfast) costs $100/ night.
  • Modern Shipping Container Apartments – this is a shipping container that has been transformed into 4 mini studio apartments. It’s located in a secure compound in Osu, one of the safer neighbourhoods in Accra. Some of the apartments are larger than others and the prices start from $32 a night.
  • Luxury Studio Apartment – for $64 a night you can stay in this set of apartments in Accra located near the US embassy.
  • Hidden Haven Cabins – riverside cabins are in Akosombo, Ghana’s Eastern Region, just on the outskirts of Accra for $90 a night. If you’re looking for serenity this place is perfect.
  • Cozy Gardens Studio – You can rent this apartment for $59 a night. It is located in Cantonments, one of the wealthy and safe parts of Accra.
  • Accra – Somewhere Nice Hostel in Kokomlemle, Accra. This isn’t one of the wealthier areas, but when I stayed here for 4 nights in 2022, I felt very safe. It is located 15 minutes away from Kotoka International Airport and rooms here start from $20 a night.
  • Kumasi – TUMI Hostel is also a guest house with double rooms, a dorm room and family rooms. The prices range from $12 a night for a bed in the dorm to $72 per night for the friend & family room.
  • Tamale – Belgha Bar & Hostel is located in Larabange, less than 30 minutes away from Mole National Park in Northern Ghana. Prices start from 150ghc ($13).
My full experience at Maranatha Beach Camp, Ghana
  • Ada – Maranatha Beach Camp is in Ada, Greater Accra, 2 and a half hours away from central Accra. If you want to try sleeping in huts on the beach, you can rent a room with prices starting from $8 a night. To book and arrange your boat transfer, just contact them here.
