Accra, Ghana – The Gateway of Africa
Kempinski welcomes you to Ghana – a country at the forefront of Africa’s economic renaissance.
The nation’s natural resources are as rich as they are diverse: from gold and diamonds to timber, cocoa and bauxite. In 2007, a major oil field was discovered here, estimated to hold as much as three billion barrels.
Ghana has also been the first country in the region to meet the UN’s Millennium
Development Goal of halving poverty by 2015. Accra, the capital city of this exuberant nation, stretches along the Atlantic coast and north into the country’s interior. Combining nineteenth century British colonial buildings with modern skyscrapers, Accra is the economic hub of the nation, and a centre for culture, tourism and nightlife. The service sector, particularly retail, hotels and restaurants, is the fastest-growing sector of the Ghanian economy. All major airlines fly into Accra daily, making the city, and the wider nation, easily accessible from anywhere around the world. Ghana is especially convenient for Europe – just six hours’ flight from London.
And, now, Accra is home to the latest in Kempinski’s network of internationally renowned hotels, situated in one of Africa’s most exciting new developments – Accra Gold Coast City.
