WEST AFRICA’S RIVER RESPITE

Destination of the World News - - NEWS -

THE GROUP BE­HIND BEIRUT HO­TEL HOTSPOT, Le Gray, is mak­ing its way to West Africa. On the back of Liberia’s grow­ing econ­omy, Camp­bell Gray Ho­tels has just de­buted The Farm­ing­ton Ho­tel, bring­ing a level of lux­ury that’s not been avail­able be­fore in the de­vel­op­ing coun­try. Ideally sit­u­ated both close to Roberts­field Air­port and on the banks of the Farm­ing­ton River (which is best taken in from one of the ho­tel’s in­fin­ity pools over­look­ing it), the prop­erty com­prises 164 mod­ish rooms and suites, two restau­rants (one Mediter­ranean and an­other Ja­panese), three pools and a spa. While busi­ness trav­ellers are likely to make up the ma­jor­ity of guests (it boasts Liberia’s largest ho­tel meet­ing fa­cil­ity), The Farm­ing­ton is more than ready to show leisure trav­ellers a good time with a ma­rina to set off on river cruises, golf at nearby Fire­stone, tra­di­tional ca­noe rides, hik­ing in Grand Bassa and deep-sea fish­ing trips. Camp­bell Gray is also look­ing to give back to Liberia while cel­e­brat­ing the ho­tel’s open­ing, and plans to do­nate a por­tion of the op­er­at­ing prof­its to Save the Chil­dren which pro­vides help through ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion, health and pro­tec­tion.
