I had to wake up ‘early’ today. I had an appointment at the Grand Casamora hotel in East Legon at 10am. It is a really nice hotel with a pool, conference rooms, bar, lounge area etc. The owner/manager of the hotel used to live in Holland but decided to come back. Ghana is home to him and even though he travelled, he always knew that he wanted to come back. He is currently expanding the hotel. He now has 12 rooms but in the near future he hopes to have 48 hotel rooms.

Starting a hotel was not the main business idea that brought him to Ghana but after having tried some other business opportunities he realized that he had some of the means in place to make it work.

There have been some blows for the hospitality industry such as the ebola outbreak but it seems that things are getting back on track for his hotel.
