Marriott opens first ever Protea Hotel in Ghana


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

The opening brings to 19 the number of Middle Eastern and African countries that Marriott International operates in.

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. 

“With its positioning in the moderate and upper moderate tier categories and with properties situated in major primary and secondary business centres and sought-after leisure destinations, Protea Hotels offers accommodation ideal for both business and leisure travellers,” said Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East & Africa, for Marriott International.
