GTA closes down six hotels ahead of Kwahu Easter and Paragliding Festival


The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA), has begun an intensive monitoring exercise to inspect all hostels, entertainment centers, food and beverage operating joints and their facilities in and around Kwahu in the Eastern Region.

According to the GTA, the importance is to ensure that operators in the hospitality space conform to high standards to ensure the safety of tourists and patrons as the annual Kwahu Easter and Paragliding festival returns this month after two years of absence.

So far, 6 facilities have been closed down by a team of personnel from the Ghana Police Service who have collaborated with the Ghana Tourism Authority and officers from various municipal and district assemblies in the Kwahu enclave.

The Eastern Regional Manager of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Frederick Adjei- Rudolph, said the GTA will ensure that no illegal operators give out their facilities to unsuspecting tourists.

“This exercise that we are conducting is very strategic. This is to ensure there that sanity prevails in the hospitality sector during the Easter festivities. You’d admit that during the Kwahu Easter festivities, those involved in the food and drinks, hotels, and entertainment are heavily patronized. Rates are quite high. The GTA is doing this to make sure that those who have not been given accreditation from the GTA do no t operate.”
