Ghana Marriott

Marriott International has announced the opening of the Protea Hotel Select Takoradi, its first establishment in Ghana.

“This opening under the Protea Hotels brand reinforces our focus on continuing to grow the footprint of Marriott International and that of Protea Hotels in strategic growth areas within Africa.  It brings to 19 the number of Middle Eastern and African countries that Marriott International operates in,” says Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East & Africa, for Marriott International.

The new hotel, located in the fourth-largest city in Ghana in an oil-rich area of the country, boasts 132 rooms, including 12 two-bedroomed apartments.

Catering to both business and leisure travellers, the hotel has a large restaurant, bar and lounge, terrace and an entertainment and pool area, as well as a gym.  Conference facilities for a maximum of 150 delegates and wi-fi connectivity throughout the hotel are geared to meet the needs of business travellers, a market identified as likely to find the new establishment a welcome addition to the accommodation on offer in the city.

Protea Hotels is Africa's leading hotel brand and has a footprint of more than 100 properties throughout Southern Africa including Namibia, Nigeria, South African, Uganda and Zambia.  www.proteahotels.com
