The President of the Republic of The Gambia, His Excellency Adama Barrow on Saturday 23rd July 2022, laid the foundation stone for the construction of the highly anticipated five-star Radisson Blu Banjul Hotel.
The construction of a five-star hotel is one of the key priority projects in preparation for the forthcoming OIC Heads of State and Government Summit in The Gambia.
The president delivered a powerful message of hope and optimism citing the numerous benefits the people of the country would gain from the project. Other speakers included the Chief Executive Officer of the Gambia OIC Secretariat, Mr. Yankuba Dibba, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, Mr. Hamat NK Bah, and the Chairman of IMMOGAM, Mr. Abdoulaye Thiam.
Radisson Blu Banjul is established under a new company called IMMOGAM Hotels and Resorts, which is jointly owned by the people of The Gambia, through the government, and the concessionaire, Immoland Sarl.
The cost of the project is $100 million. The luxury hotel will have 400 high-end rooms alongside 60 presidential and royal suites.
The five-star hotel will ensure the guests receive a befitting accommodation experience. Additionally, it will diversify our tourism portfolio by providing luxurious accommodation facilities for high-end tourists.
The government of The Gambia and its partners remain committed to hosting a memorable Summit while contributing to the social, economic, and infrastructural development of the country.
The event was attended by Cabinet Ministers, Senior Government Officials, and Members of the Diplomatic and Consular Corps.
