Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 28 January 2011

Rezidor has signed its 10th hotel in West Africa. The Radisson Blu Hotel, Accra in Ghana, is scheduled to open in 2013 and adds 168 rooms to Rezidors pipeline.

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Accra, will be located in the heart of the business district of the Ghanaian capital, 5 walking minutes from the beach.

Besides 168 guest rooms including 20 apartments ranging from 1 to 3 bedrooms, the property will offer a restaurant and 2 bars, 300m2 of meeting space, a gym, and an outdoor swimming pool.

One of the most economically and politically stable countries in Africa, Ghana has experienced several years of sustained economic growth, despite the global economic situation. Good fiscal management and high prices for key commodities like gold and cocoa have sustained the economy and the IMF projects accelerated growth in the coming years. Moreover, in December 2010, Ghana began to pump its first commercial oil from the offshore Jubilee Field, which contains an estimated 1.5 billion barrels of oil, and is projected to generate $1 billion in government revenues annually.

The emerging African continent is a key development area for Rezidor. We are delighted to add a new hotel in a new country to our portfolio which now comprises 37 hotels and almost 8,300 rooms in operation and under development across 15 African countries, said Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor. Africa is an exciting market with huge natural resources, increasingly stable systems and improved infrastructure, a high GDP growth and last but not least an imbalance of supply and demand when it comes to modern, internationally branded hotel rooms. We see a great potential for profitable growth in Africa and are actively seeking for further development opportunities.
