Description: Set amidst tropical landscaped gardens adjacent to one of Ghana's most popular beaches in the country's administrative, communications and economic centre in Accra, the Labadi Beach Hotel caters for the business and leisure traveller. The hotel has earned itself the reputation of being the most sought after business venue in the country. The hotel enriched its resort status with a plush beachfront facility for its guests. The beach has exotic loungers and offers snacks and assorted drinks, waiter service and permanent security to keep the nuisance factor of the entrepreneurs in check. The beach is mechanically cleaned twice daily with an imported cleaning machine that sifts the sands to remove unwanted debris. This is surely the cleanest sand above the high watermark in Accra. The hotel has a gymnasium which offers the use of the sauna, swimming pool and tennis courts. There are plenty rooms for guests including two Accessible Rooms. The hotel also offers two bars and two restaurants, a curio and gift shop, a business centre, conference and banqueting facilities for up to 180 delegates, a swimming pool with an adjacent children's pool, a health club offering a fully equipped gymnasium, sauna and massage facilities, as well as a volleyball court and two floodlit tennis courts.
