Marriott International expands its footprint in Middle East and Africa to 19 countries by opening a new property in Ghana. The leading lodging company has announced the opening of the Protea Hotel Select Takoradi, its first establishment in Ghana. Protea Hotels is Africa's leading hotel brand and has a footprint of more than 100 properties throughout South Africa and seven other African countries, including Zambia, Nigeria, Namibia, Ghana and Uganda amongst others.
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 travelers, 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 travelers, a market identified as likely to find the new establishment a welcome addition to the accommodation on offer in the city.
“With its positioning in the moderate and upper moderate tier categories and with properties situated in major primary and secondary business centers and sought-after leisure destinations, Protea Hotels offers accommodation ideal for both business and leisure travelers. The approach we take at Protea Hotels is to offer modern design and consistent amenities with a unique blend of global standards combined with proactive and personal service so every guest feels important and appreciated,” said Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East & Africa, for Marriott International.
