Akwaaba Spa
Ghanaians are known by their amazing sense of friendship and brotherhood. Ghana is integrated into the modern world, but they managed to keep their traditions: family values, good food, and a matriarchal society, where women say when and where. This is a free time facility for Ghanaian women, a place for inspiring their soul in front of the sunny and stunning beach. Three main spaces (Sea Room, Land Room and Sky Room) are organised around a restaurant where Fufu and many other tropical gifts can be prepared and tasted by guests. An inverted structure around the periphery holds long platforms, so allowing free plan in all rooms. The building has no administration. The guests are the owners... using verbal instructions they organise and command the complex.    DE   EN   ES   FR
