Experience Serenity at the Royal Senchi Hotel and Resort

Built in 2011 (Originally started in 1997 as the Senchi Waterfront), the Royal Senchi Hotel and Resort is the first four star resort infused with the serenity of the Volta Lake and complemented by the highest standards of hospitality services. It has been designed to blend into the appealing, balmy environment of the Senchi River and the surrounding rich forestry.

Located in what was previously known as the Kingdom of Akwamu, a region filled with over a century of captivating history, the hotel is situated on the western bank of the Volta River. The hotel offers luxury hospitality at an ideal distance from the buzz of Ghana’s busiest cities, with a location that is remote and peaceful but still within easy commuting distance of the country’s main business hubs.

The Royal Senchi offers excellent accommodation that merges with the relaxed, natural environment in which it is situated. The architecture, colours and furnishings all lend to the authentic look and feel of a luxury Ghanaian resort; features such as these have seen the hotel adjudged ‘Indigenous Company of the year 2018’ at the first edition of the Ghana Business Awards.

The Royal Senchi opens its doors and invites guests to experience an unforgettable journey during their stay; the hotel’s breathtaking backdrop, astonishing views of the neighbouring river and lake, river beaches and rolling green scenery, allows guests to escape to a destination where natural beauty, historical wonder and the promise of an adventure of a lifetime, all create a unique and memorable stay.

Guest who arrive at the hotel are warmly welcomed with a personalised check-in service, welcome fruits and drinks, and a complimentary champagne breakfast. The hotel prides itself on its ability to offer the perfect setting for all events, from special occasions, honeymoons and anniversaries to short business trips and family holidays. The four star resort offers 84 luxurious rooms and suites (including a Presidential suite) that boast spaciousness, tasteful designs and plush amenities. Modern comforts and technologies including Wi-Fi, LED satellite TV and a complimentary mini bar are available in every room at The Royal Senchi. In addition, each guestroom features either a balcony or a terrace.

The Royal Senchi Hotel has three exquisite dining areas for hotel guests to enjoy, including its flagship restaurant, The Senchi Restaurant, which serves an à la carte menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant, which offers a selection of international and Ghanaian dishes, prides itself on using locally sourced ingredients in its dishes. Guests can enjoy the scenic riverside view as they eat lunch, or take in the fairy tale sight of the hotel’s illuminated pool at dinner. For later in the evening, the hotel’s Palm Lounge offers a more exciting atmosphere for enjoying a drink or socialising with friends and colleagues. The Nsu bar’s traditional Ghanaian décor and wide selection of cocktails attract business and leisure guests throughout the week. Other facilities and services available includes an outdoor swimming pool, a world class gym and fitness centre, a tennis court and salon and spa. As a proud partner of the GUBA Diaspora, the Royal Senchi offers special rates on accommodation and 15% discount on food and beverage at the Senchi Restaurant and the Nsu Bar to cardholders.

For guests visiting the resort on business, The Royal Senchi Hotel offers an extensive range of facilities and services to assist with any event: the ballroom is capable of hosting up to 200 guests, and an attractive outdoor space is also available to make any function complete. Presentation equipment, including overhead projectors and screens, is also available.

The Royal Senchi is certainly one of the most beautiful places to lodge in Ghana and taking a boat trip along the river from the hotel to the Akosombo dam is one of the main highlights that should not be missed. For leisure getaways from the nation’s capital, and as a place to discover one of Ghana’s most interesting and serene regions, it is a superb choice.
