Year of Return Lodging

Since the Year of 

A Royal Retreat in the Heart of Accra

At Sankofa, every guest is treated with the reverence of African royalty and the familiarity of family. Our ethos is deeply rooted in the Ghanaian principle of “Sankofa,” which means “go back and get it.” It’s a call to revisit our roots, to learn from our past, and to embrace our rich African heritage. This philosophy is evident in every facet of our guest house, from our meticulously designed rooms that blend traditional Ghanaian aesthetics with modern comforts to our curated experiences that offer a deep dive into Ghana’s vibrant culture.

Unparalleled Spa & Wellness Services

Our spa services are a reflection of Ghana’s age-old wellness traditions combined with contemporary practices. Whether you’re seeking physical rejuvenation or spiritual healing, our range of treatments promises a holistic experience. Dive into relaxation with our signature Sensory Sensation package or indulge in the Royal Ghanaian Spa Experience that uses traditional ingredients sourced from Ghana’s rich land. Our African Sunset Bath promises a tranquil end to your day, while the Diaspora Dreams Meditation connects you with your African ancestors.

Our prime location  ensures you’re at the heart of it all. Explore the city’s landmarks, indulge in its vibrant nightlife, or simply relax at our outdoor gym, soaking in the sights and sounds of Accra.

Why Sankofa Stands Out
