Project General Description

The project includes the construction and operation of a 267-room 5-star hotel in Accra, which will deliver a world-class accommodation and congress facilities that are required to host the increasing volume of business, cultural and governmental activities. A key focus of this effort is to create links between local and medium sized business along the hotel's supply chain. This project is designed to boost local businesses by increasing the amount of local products and resources in the hotel's supply chain.

Project Objectives

The real innovation in the project is the implementation of a guidance and support program to local SMEs so that they benefit from opportunities for subcontracting work and services during the hotel’s construction. The project supports the Bank’s private sector development strategy by simultaneously putting in place new infrastructure to support the development of local enterprises, and by demonstrating the relevance of public-private partnerships in the hospitality industry, which should facilitate future Bank’s projects in the industry in other parts of the continent. The total cost is estimated at US$ 49.4 million. The project will be financed with US$17.4 million in equity and US$32 million in senior debt from the AfDB and the Barclays Africa Group, ABSA.
