The treatment menu will utilise the luxury Thémaé, Paris product line based on the natural healing benefits of tea.Architects Looney & Associates based its design on a reinterpretation of classical baroque and modern European styles to create a colourful area, finished in rich natural tones, stone, wood and gold mosaics.

  1. Pls can u help with updates on the over all accra gold coast city. Thanks

  2. Cape Coast old post office. It is sad to see the images online of this building unfinished and abandoned. The site is excellent with its views of the Atlantic. When and why did construction stop? A sign in one of the imagesreads "Site of proposed Slavery Museum" Are there any future plans for the site?
