The lack of hotel facilities at tourist sites coupled with the high rate of the available ones does not encourage tourists to stay long or overnight at tourist sites. This prevents tourists from spending money at most tourist attractions that will hitherto contribute to the economic boom of local communities where these sites are located.
The project involves the construction of 20 budget hotels to serve tourist sites or clusters of them to accommodate tourists who visit these sites. The budget hotels which are expected to be similar in design, look and feel will have a maximum room capacity of 20 and will be situated at potentially profitable sites or clusters so as to be sustainable. The project will be executed with local materials in the locality in order to reduce cost and give it a Ghanaian feel as much as possible or use of prefabricated solution to speed up the construction time.
All tourist sites or clusters that the GH Akwaaba Hotel will serve would be developed by ensuring that they have multiple attractions, health and safety measures are incorporated as well as some infrastructure developments.
