“I am delighted to be a part of this project in Accra and experience first-hand the famed hospitality of Ghanaians”, said Mr. Adnan Yucel on his new appointment. “I see it every day – through the eyes of my team and their warm, genuine smiles. It is no wonder that this hotel has consistently been ranked as one of the best in terms of service quality and guest satisfaction, which is why it is the first choice amongst our highly influential clientele, and I look forward to continuing this tradition of making moments with our guests”.
