The Golden Bean Hotel has been honoured for the uniqueness of the hotel’s food and beverages that has contributed to development and growth of the tourism and hospitality industry.
At the 4th Ghana Hotels Association Awards held at the Accra Marriot Hotel-Airport City, Golden Bean Hotel was adjudged Food and Beverage Team of the Year (3-Star Category).
The Ghana Hotels Association Awards recognise individuals, organisations and facilities that have over the years contributed to development and growth of the industry. The awards are categorised into one-, two-, three-, four- and five-star hotels which have proven to be satisfactory by the awards committee.
This year’s event was held under the theme ‘Reducing the hotel rates in Ghana: The Role of Government and Hotel Operators’. Present was the Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs. Barbara Oteng-Gyasi, who in her solidarity message underscored the Ghana Hotels Association’s role as key to development of the Hospitality Industry.
Government, she admitted, acknowledges the hospitality industry as a major contributor to foreign exchange earnings and revenue to the state from taxation, and as such will continue to give it the necessary support to thrive.
Located in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region capital, Golden Bean Hotel aside from its luxurious facilities invests a lot in the uniqueness of its cuisine – as demonstrated through the variety of buffet meals that begin with breakfast, go on to lunch and finally to a buffet-spread dinner uniquely presented.
Mr. Melchizedek Owusu Boachie, the Sales and Marketing Manager-Golden Bean Hotel, accompanied by Mrs. Sarah Laryea, Front Office Manager, were present to receive the award.
Mr. Owusu Boachie spoke to the Press and reiterated that it was no surprise to see Golden Bean Hotel awarded Best Food and Beverage Team, touting that the hotel is always particular about what it serves to guests. “Our target is to satisfy all guests with our large set of buffets which blend continental and local dishes, and we believe this is the opportune time to invest more resources in ensuring different varieties are introduced for an exciting experience.”
The General Manager of Golden Bean Hotel, Mr. Francis Alley Deyegbe who received with joy news of the award, observed that the rich culture that exists in the Ashanti kingdom coupled with the cosmopolitan nature of Kumasi means no stone is left unturned in presenting a large array and varieties in cuisine.
Golden Bean Hotel, he assured, will continue to invest in the delivery of quality services by training and updating its human resources on current trends, so as to excel in all departments of a hotel establishment and promote Ghana’s hospitality industry.
