Ideally located, our comfortable hotels in Benin are close to the most beautiful beaches in the country and the main tourist sites. Feel like taking a romantic walk in the lakeside village of Ganvié? Close to our 4-star hotel in Cotonou, simply head up the western bank of Lake Nokoué to take a lovely walk. From there, why not take the opportunity to take the road to Abomey, the former capital of the kingdom? A UNESCO heritage site, the sumptuous royal palaces are worth a visit. On the way back, nothing prevents you from making a relaxing stop on the beaches of Grand Popo. Unless you prefer to return directly to our establishment that’s located between the city center and the ocean to take advantage of the comfort of our rooms and our facilities to relax.
What is there to do in Benin ?
The cradle of voodoo and once ancient kingdom of Dahomey, Benin is today a land rich in contrasts, where traditional villages rub shoulders with modern cities. In Cotonou, the economic capital of the country, the contemporary buildings of the Zinsou foundation overlook the huts of the craft village. You’ll have the opportunity to visit them during your stay in our hotel near the city center. Then drive north and let yourself be charmed by the colorful wooden houses of Ganvié, a village built on stilts at the edge of the Nokoué salt lake. Then head toward Abomey and its royal palaces, an essential stop in Benin. After history comes nature: elephants, giraffes and lions await you at Pendjari National Park. And after the so much excitement, it’s time to take a rest in our hotel in Benin, where you will recover from the day in the cozy comfort of your room.
Top activities in Benin
From our luxury hotel in Benin, you have access to a wide range of activities while having a comfortable base near the coast. On the magnificent beach of Grand Popo, about an hour and a half by car from our establishment, you will never tire of the spectacle offered by the colorful canoes of the fishermen and the drying fish. But your stay has many other unique experiences in store for you. Take advantage of the hospitality of the Somba people to visit a "tata", a traditional earthen house. In Ouidah, take a walk among the free pythons before discovering the Tree of the Forgotten, a symbol of the old slave port. Finally, get some fresh air and see the lush vegetation near Kota Falls. Seeing them is refreshing, as are the delicious local specialties that you will taste upon your return at our Golden Tulip restaurant.
