YAMUSAH Group partners Marriott Int’l in new hotel project

Ghana is set to witness the establishment of Protea Hotels by Marriott, part of Marriott International Incorporated in Accra.

This is as a result of the signing on of Protea Hotel by Marriott Accra, Kotoka International Airport (KIA), the brand’s second hotel in Ghana and the first Protea Hotel by Marriott in the capital city of Accra.

Owned by Baobab Hotels & Resorts which is a subsidiary of the YAMUSAH Group, the hotel to be opened in mid 2019 will be strategically located in the prestigious airport residential area of Accra.

A mere 1.5 kilometres from KIA, the hotel is also in close proximity to key diplomatic, government and commercial nodes.

President and Chief Executive Officer of the YAMUSAH Group of Companies, Mr Zibrim Yamusah said, “We are pleased to partner with Marriott International to bring the Protea Hotels by Marriott brand to Accra. The brand’s strong regional equity and awareness coupled with the global distribution of Marriott International and the strength of its loyalty programme, we believe, are a powerful combination that will help position the hotel and drive business.”

Vice President of Protea Hotels by Marriott, Marriott International, Middle East and Africa, Volker Heiden was quoted as saying, “Continuing economic growth in Africa is driving greater investment in the continent, and Ghana is proving to be particularly attractive as an investment destination.”

Protea Hotels by Marriott, Volker Heiden said was one of Africa’s most well established hotel brands and “we are delighted to debut the brand in the bustling and dynamic capital city of Accra; the hotel will meet the rising demand for quality lodging in the city, catering to both the business as well as the leisure traveller.”


Protea Hotel by Marriott Accra Kokota Airport will be a 17-story, 200-room hotel offering a restaurant, a lobby bar and lounge, small conference and meeting facilities, an air crew lounge, a gymnasium and a roof-top pool bar and lounge with uninterrupted views of the city.

With its strategic location and the range of facilities it will offer, the hotel will be ideal for business and leisure travellers, as well as airline crew and the local community.
