    French-Ivoirian couple Alain and Pascale run this fusion of hotel and restaurant, which offers impeccable style, local art and artists, the most exquisite decor, lush rooms and gourmet food. Every corner of this three-storey townhouse is spoken for with antiques and art collected by Alain, who also commissioned Ivoirian artists to adorn the walls. The rooms are relaxing, with four-poster beds and ample bathrooms. There is a swimming pool and a small exercise area.
