La Palm Royal Beach Hotel has been adjudged Ghana’s Leading Hotel at the just ended World Travel Awards 2011 Africa & Indian Ocean ceremony organized in Egypt.

The wholly owned Ghanaian hotel, which is a member of the Golden Beach Hotels was nominated by travel professionals, the traveling public, tour operators, transport owners, tourism organisation professionals and from about 164 countries worldwide.

Chief Operating Officer Grace Quainoo, speaking on Citi FM’s Breakfast Show on Thursday, said La Palm Royal Beach Hotel came up against competition from Golden Tulip Accra and Novotel Accra City and “this award separates the good from the outstanding so we won. ”

La Palm which has been in existence for over 12 years was previously 70 per cent Ghanaian owned and until this year the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) took over 100 per cent.

The hotel currently has the biggest convention centre which can cater for about 3000 people, holds about 12 conference rooms which can sit about 1000 delegates.

There is an expansion project ongoing at the hotel to increase its capacity, but currently has 152 standard rooms, junior and presidential suites, eight restaurants and bars, and the largest swimming pool in Ghana.

It has also as part of the refurbishment, purchased two limousine style golf carts which can now drive guests to their rooms in leisure.

The hotel is currently embarking on a campaign dubbed “One Hotel, endless possibilities” where different packages are offered to customers depending on their budget.
