The African Regent Hotel is home to a truly cosmopolitan, African experience, where local charm meets with international accommodation standards

Proud of its position as a fully Ghanaian owned and operated business, the African Regent hotel is an authentic, contemporary, and comfortable native hotel uniquely-appointed in the bustling city of Accra. No stranger to the requirements of the international business traveller, son of former President John Kuffuor owns and runs this stalwart of the Ghanaian hospitality sector, applying his own experience in international relations to make sure all guests are never left wanting.

The Regent is further well-positioned in its proximity to the business district, where one is conveniently located to the headquarters of all the major businesses in Ghana. Moreover, easy accessibility to the airport is another worthy benefit – given the inconsistency of traffic flow in the city due to its underdeveloped infrastructure. All of this has led The African Regent Hotel to gain a reputation which has led it to being chosen to play host to a plethora of conferences over the years, on behalf of many internationally recognised corporations, such as Nestlé.

As stated, the hotel operates under stringent international standards, however, perhaps a bigger draw for visitors is the fact that it also has a strong thread of Ghanaian cultural colour woven through operations. As proprietor, Mr Kuffuor, states, “We are different to other hotels insofar as we are Ghanaian, and we are trying to build a homegrown brand. That is an advantage we are very proud of.”

An icon of the finest hospitality in Ghana, The African Regent is an integral part of Accra's most prestigious residential ex-pat community too, and features exclusive accommodation that offers more than just a good night’s sleep.

Located on the first level, ‘Nhyiemu’ is the largest conference facility within the hotel, with plenty of daylight access: it can comfortably accommodate up to 150 guests. This room can transform into the African Regent’s elegant banquet hall by evening. Overall, the Regent offers indoor and outdoor, poolside and penthouse function areas. It also comprises events venues which provide the perfect backdrop for meetings, fine banquets, and any other special occasion.

The décor throughout is boldly contemporary, yet inspired by elements of traditional African design. The stunning, spacious interiors and professional staff make The African Regent as much a place to stay and relax as a prime destination to entertain, socialise, and do business. The rooms are designed to inspire and relax, while connecting you with the surrounding business environment and ensuring your comfort and convenience.
