Radisson Hotel Group has entered Ghana for the first time with the opening of Number One Oxford Street Hotel & Suites, a member of Radisson Individuals.
This milestone debut in the Osu neighbourhood of Accra marks the second Radisson Individuals hotel opening in Africa.
A prime location in Accra
Radisson Hotel Group partnered with Belfast City Management, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kwarleyz Group, to open Number One Oxford Street Hotel & Suites, a member of Radisson Individuals on one of the most prominent streets in Accra.
By being based here, guests are on the doorstep of the city’s financial business district and government ministries, close to attractions including Black Star square and Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and Museum and just four kilometres from Kotoka Accra International Airport.
Tim Cordon, area senior vice president in the Middle East and Africa at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We are delighted to mark our official debut in Ghana and maintain the momentum of our new Radisson Individuals brand in Africa with the rebranding of this landmark hotel, Number One Oxford Street Hotel & Suites.”
“Africa presents a key opportunity for Radisson Individuals, as it perfectly responds to the evolving demands of the continent’s market for both hotel owners and guests. We look forward to guests enjoying this beloved hotel, coupled with our renowned Yes I Can! service and hospitality.”
A luxury residential experience
The architecturally striking property houses 108 luxurious residential units, along with amenities including an outdoor swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness centre and spa. The hotel features a terrace for light meals and drinks and Restaurant Uno for contemporary dining.
Nana Kwame Bediako, CEO of Kwarleyz Group, founder of Belfast City Management and owner of Number One Oxford Street Hotels and Suites, said: “When our hotel launched before the global pandemic, we envisioned a product that perfectly landed in a post-pandemic world where social distancing and space would be in high demand for travellers, even without a pandemic.”
“We provide our guests with multiple separate fully functioning spaces, whether they stay for a short while or remain in residence with us for an extended period. This hotel marks our first collaboration with Radisson Hotel Group and it is the intention to continuously serve our guests that has led us to this great partnership.”
“We aim to keep delivering the same high levels of security, comfort, safety and privacy that Number One Oxford Street Hotels & Suites has been known for as we open as the second member of Radisson Individuals on the African continent.”
