A brand-new tourism and river resort has been opened at Tunu near Anyanui in the newly created Anloga District of the Volta Region. The facility, known as ‘The Chill River Resort’ is expected not only to boost cultural and eco-tourism in the area but also generate additional revenue for the new local Assembly and government for that matter.
The River Resort is situated on a 200-acre land overlooking parts of the Volta Lake which is the second largest man-made Lake in the world.
On Sunday, 3rd November, this year, the resort became the venue for this year’s annual Anlo Hogbetsotso Festival regatta competition which was held among nine (9) teams of the Rafting and Dragon Boat Association drawn from the Volta and Greater Accra regions.
According to Mr. Michael Gamey, Manager of the Resort, the facility which became operational during the early part of the year, has become a place of comfort, hospitality and natural beauty for many people. It also provides a fantastic view of the Lake, the natural mangrove of the area as well as all the adjoining islands within the enclave.
Mr. Gamey told our newsteam that the Resort offers Standard and Family Suites, Holiday Homes, Bar and Restaurant as well as Water Sports amongst others. It also gives what he described as a vibe of sophisticated elegance and complete relaxation within a high-quality furnishing environment and amenities for use by clients and visitors.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of The Chill River Resort, Mr. Kofi Graham told our newsteam in an interview that the establishment of the facility is a fulfillment of a childhood dream following his interest in Angling, Natural Swimming, Adventure as well as Paradise Gardening.
According to him, The Chill offers everything that anybody wants in life, adding that it is good for the family, the ageing and all manner of people.
Mr. Graham disclosed that as part of efforts to encourage investment attitudes in many people, Management has introduced the home-share policy where individuals and family members can own a home at Tunu through raising a mortgage. He explained that such a home could occasionally be leased out for the owners or investors to redeem their mortgage as and when the need arises as it happens in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and other countries around the world.
The CEO gave the assurance that his outfit would continue to do everything possible to make The Chill what he described as a home out of a home.
District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area, Hon. Seth Yormewu described the establishment of the facility as welcoming, saying apart from creating job opportunities for the teeming youth of the area, the Resort would go a long way to promote the district in eco-tourism amongst others.
He commended Management of the facility for the initiative and urged other investors both within and outside the district to take advantage of the numerous policies of government to invest in the district in particular and the country as a whole.
ROCOMAMAS Officially Launches At A & C Mall – Oct. 30
An International eatery company ROCOMAMAS known for its unique services and great taste will officially launch and open its Ghana branch at the A & C Mall, East Legon, Accra, on Friday, October 30, 2020. The Launch, according to management, will be attended by guests with exclusive invitations from the management of the Restaurant.
Speaking to Management of ROCOMAMAS Ghana, the restaurant, “RocoMamas celebrates uniqueness, being weird, odd and boldly being daring. The brand position of ‘NOT NORMAL’ is evident in the funky décor, rock ‘n roll vibe, unique menu items, and an open-style kitchen where customers can see (and smell) the meals being prepared. This new concept is a result of the growing appetite for handmade food and a more personalized dining experience”.
They added that the restaurant targets young urbanites, families, fun-loving young people, and young at heart. “The brand is more different than the other food brands in operation that people already used to. The meals here are really dope which makes it out of the normal foods. ROCOMAMAS is mainly made for anyone who really wants to enjoy tasty meals out of the normal”
Founded in July 2013, RocoMamas has fast become one of the trendiest fast-casual restaurants in South Africa, garnering a loyal following of burger enthusiasts. Famous for our artisanal-style “Smashburger’s”, the franchise also serves chicken wings, beef, and pork ribs as their core offering. Many customers will testify that once you’ve tasted a Smashburger, there’s no going back to ‘normal’ – something that RocoMamas prides itself on not being. Our flagship restaurant in Ghana is our way of introducing Ghanaians to a true story based on love, rock, and hamburgers.
Their brand position of “Not Normal” is evident in their funky décor, rock ‘n roll vibe, unique menu items, and an open-style kitchen where customers can see (and smell) the meals being prepared. This new concept is a result of the growing appetite for hand-made food and a more personalized dining experience. Customers can sit down and soak up the laid-back vibe with a burger and craft beer, or choose to order a takeaway thanks to the speedy service. RocoMamas has a menu that goes far beyond your typical burger joint; it’s all about customization.
The RocoMamas concept was launched by Brian Altriche, who has grown RocoMamas to more than 65 restaurants throughout South Africa and 13 international restaurants, located in Australia, Namibia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mauritius, the Middle East, and recently opened its first outlets in Cyprus, India, and now Ghana.

Night Club Owners Call on Government to Ease COV¡D-19 Restrictions
The last announcement by the Government in regards to efforts undertaken to combat the global pandemic in Ghana has been met by utter despair from businesses who are starting to question the veracity of the lockdown measures and where the empirical evidence is for closing hospitality venues which account for a mere or no percentage spread of the virus.
Ace Tantra Night Club, Osu has warned that, the latest lockdown restrictions, which see Night Clubs and other leisure venues having been closed down, could see an increment in unemployment unless the government offer immediate and comprehensive financial support for night club owners struggling to cope with the imposed draconian restrictions on the businesses, or allow these independent businesses return to full operation.
According to the management of the night club, who spoke to www.gbafrica.net, the hospitality and leisure venue is now shouldering 100% of the lockdown burden with no meaningful support to compensate for 7 months and counting. The management also explained that, the business continues successive payment of utility bills and logistics, monthly salaries to staff who would be rendered jobless should the business close down.
The management buttressed their claims by saying, if political parties are holding conference and rallies where supporters attend in large numbers, most without face masks, ignoring measures recommended by the government to prevent spreading the coronavirus, pubs and bars allowed to operate then, there is no need to partially or fully close night clubs and other leisure venues.
The management suggested certain measures that can be adapted and enforced to help ease the spread of virus. They outlined measures like, mandatory temperature checks prior to entry, admission of customers based on reservation only, restricting club capacity to 50% for a start and this can be subject to review after a while. This they explain, helps protect everyone and strengthen the impact of the fight against the pandemic.
