Memories at Mammy Wata in Assinie

Mammy Wata is an awesome place to stay in Assinie beach in Côte d’Ivoire.

As I probably already mentioned, this time I didn’t book any hotels in advance, so I was checking hotels and route all the way. The website I use to look up accommodations in CI? Simple, google maps. Basically after deciding the next stop, check the hotel scores and decided which one to take.

The location if Mammy Wata in Assinie seemed cool, it’s between the lagoons and the ocean. Funny thing was that there was literally nobody staying there at this time of the year so you can have the whole area to yourself and enjoy the quietness.

Mammy Wata is on the other side of the lagoon, the personeel will help you cross the river, but to get to the village of Assinie Mafia, there’s another tiver to cross. So better just relax in the island for a few days once you reach the hotel.

The studio was simple but I loved it.

They also have some bigger bungalows next to it.

The personel there was super friendly, had great experience. Because it was off season, there weren’t many restaurants open in the area. So you can tell him what you want to eat and he go to the village buy ingredient and cook.

Above are the food he made. I believe I already shared it before. It was awesome.

Beach is just 5 minutes walk away, most beach bars were closed and the beach was also quiet. I loved the quietness.

虽然科特迪瓦南部有很长一段海岸线,但是真正适合放松度假的地方并不多,大多是没有太多海滩的渔村,这很好理解,西非并不是非洲最适合度假的地方,跟平和温柔的印度洋相比,大西洋显得那么狂野,适合冲浪不适合优雅。

Assinie是科特迪瓦海边为数不多的度假海滩。即使这样,我去的时候依旧没什么游客,我很好奇12月圣诞节附近都不算旺季那什么时候才算旺季呢?

这次出门没有预定任何酒店,走到哪再考虑下一个城市和住处。就用Google地图这样原始的工具,还挺好用,选的几个酒店都还不错呢!

在Assinie这家Mammy Wata非常安静,地处在湖和海之中的一个飞地。地方很大,种满美丽的植物,非常原始自然美,都是竹屋,虽然条件简单没什么华丽的,但是我很喜欢!
