#OutstandingBrands2021: Akwaaba to the new Alisa


From a humble beginning of a 14- room hotel– Alisa Labone as it now stands in the leafy suburbs of Accra, Alisa Hotels was established by Mr. Kwame Ofosu Bamfo as a wholly-owned Ghanaian enterprise in the year 1999. It was initially setup as a guest house to host the Owner’s Business partners who came to Ghana.

This quickly turned into a business because of the quality of service and products that were on offer at the hotel and became a favorite hangout for many within the vicinity and beyond. This led to the rapid growth of the hotel and sooner, the then Sunrise Hotel was acquired by the Owner and added to the Alisa Hotels Group as Alisa Hotel North Ridge. Alisa Hotels North Ridge progressively and consistently grew over the years, aching a name for itself as a mark of distinction with quality services and products.

The hotel added an astounding 242 rooms to the original 25 rooms acquired together with a total of 14 Conference Venues of diverse dimensions.

Alisa Hotels has won several awards in its wake including the prestigious AGI Award for the

Best 4 Star Hotel on 2 occasions, Best MICE Hotel at the GEM Awards, and the Gold Award at the Financial Services Excellence Awards, to name a few.

The expansion and growth coupled with its bigger responsibilities of maintaining the high standards set by the Owner, led the owner to sign a Franchise agreement with Swiss International Hotels and Resorts, a Hospitality Management Company based in Dubai, to expose the hotel’s

products and services to the International Hotel market in an effort to increase the hotel’s revenues and market share in the industry.

This franchise agreement came to an end in December 2020 and hence the rebirth of the New Alisa Hotels and rebranding process set in motion.in 2018, the idea of a new addition to the Alisa brand of Hotels promise of excellence was borne and a new property in the Harbour city of Tema- a 50 room 4 star luxury hotel started on its foundation and is set to open in Mid-2021. Mr. Bamfo proudly quips “we promise nothing but the best in hospitality services to all our cherished patrons”.

Following the exposure and experience the hotel group has acquired over the years, we now believe it is time to stand on our own as a proudly indigenous Ghanaian hospitality brand and convey the true sense of Ghanaian hospitality to the international market.

Today, Alisa Hotels is setting the standard for excellence in Ghanaian hospitality which embodies the largest accommodation provider in the country, with three hotels – Alisa Hotel North Ridge, Alisa Hotel Labone offering 281 rooms and 14 conference rooms, and the new kid on the block Alisa Hotel Tema which will offer 50 additional rooms and 3 conference rooms to the company’s portfolio.

Thank you to all our committed and loyal customers. Your support and patronage made us who we are and together we shall see us through this very difficult times during the COVID-19 pandemic. At Alisa Hotels all safety and health protocols have been enhanced and improved. Nothing is left to chance.

We present to you the new phase of Alisa Hotels where Our Akwaaba means more than just welcome! Truly the Alisa Hotels Brand is the brand to watch in 2021.
