Chill out next to the sparkling pool, in the landscaped gardens or on any of the spacious balconies and palm-fringed sun decks or join the party in the hostel’s legendary Kumasi Bar with its cool cocktails and fabulous mountain views. The giant TV shows all the major sporting events, or set up your own match over the pool table. You can also get delicious meals in the bar, or you can cater for yourself in the well-equipped communal kitchen.

I very much enjoyed staying in Ashanti lodge, Garden. Everything was very nice. Lodge staff members were very co-operative and helping. One thing I would like to suggest that please improve the quality of kitchen. there are very less dishes and tools available.
