Campbell Gray Hotels to manage The Farmington Hotel, Liberia
The hotel comprises 164 rooms and suites and Campbell Gray Hotels intends that a donation from the operating profits will be used charitably, working with Save The Children
Campbell Gray Hotels is set to manage The Farmington Hotel, Liberia on its debut later this month.
Located close to Robertsfield Airport, the hotel comprises 164 rooms and suites and is set to target business travellers and airline personnel for whom proximity to the airport is important.
A spokesperson for Campbell Gray Hotels added: "This is certainly something of a departure from Campbell Gray Hotels’ luxury properties across Europe and The Middle East. However, we saw the chance to bring our expertise to an emerging destination and it is our intention that a donation from the operating profits from The Farmington will be used charitably, working alongside Save The Children with whom we have been involved over the years."
The Farmington will have two restaurants: Toscana which will offer a Southern Mediterranean style, and Sokyo, a Japanese sushi and yakitori experience.
There are two bars, including one poolside. Meeting facilities are located in a dedicated convention centre with a capacity for up to 600 delegates, a boardroom for up to 25 and two further theatre-style meeting rooms that each cater for up to 50 guests. This will be the largest hotel meeting facility in Liberia.
Leisure facilities include three outdoor swimming pools, gymnasium and spa, and The Farmington’s riverside location allows the creation of a small marina from which the hotel will offer river cruises and boat trips.
The Farmington’s investors, AJA Group's chairman and managing director Khalil Abu Jaoude said in a statement: "We are delighted to have found a partner that shares our commitment to provide opportunities in Liberia and contribute to its growing economy. We believe Campbell Gray Hotels will deliver exceptional service for guests at The Farmington Hotel, not experienced in the country before."
