Rock City Hotel’s Development
Today, 10 November is precisely eleven years since the foundation stone was laid for the development of Rock City Hotel. Eleven years of excessive difficult work, conquering a hard terrain. Even though we’re in part opened for business, we’re programmed to formally open the section 1 which will contain 608 rooms through November 2020 and whole section two with 1,592 rooms and all different services and centers through 2025.
There are many renowned hotels found in the Kwahu area in the Eastern Region of Ghana. These hotels have served the good people of Kwahu as well as others in the region and Ghana as whole not forgetting foreign nationals who comes in for the purpose of tourism and education.
Perceptions of the Indigenes
However, some indigenes of Kwahu are a bit sceptical about the business sense of such a major project in Kwahu, given the fact that apart from Easter holidays, the entire stretch of towns on the Kwahu Mountains become virtually as quiet towns. This happens as residents go about their usual business activities in other parts of the country, mostly in the Greater Accra Region.
Hundreds of thousands of travellers troops to Kwahu every Easter celebration. For about one week, the towns are choked with various activities from church programs to traditional festivals. However, this ends abruptly after the celebrations are over, and the town goes back to sleep with a farming and ageing population.
Rock City is being developed as a Hotel and Resort to play a major function in the Tourism industry in Africa and Ghana as Whole. At 2,700 hundred rooms, Rock City could be the biggest hotel in Africa and 50th at the international level with services and centers unmatched. Rock City is focussed on Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, Exhibitions (MICE) and additionally positioning as a Family and Fun destination.
