Bob Johnson opens his Hotel and Resort in Liberia.....

Bob Johnson

Robert L. Johnson, Chairman of The RLJ Companies, and the founder of BET, last week announced the grand opening of his latest business development, the RLJ Kendeja Hotel, Resort & Villas located in Monrovia, Liberia.
Located on 13-acres of ocean front property, the 78-room villa style hotel offers first-class amenities catering to domestic and international travelers and includes an on-site restaurant, full service spa, tennis courts and swimming pool with poolside bar.

Some Views of the Resort

The hotel is the most luxurious hotel Liberia has ever seen and the first resort to open in the country for two decades. Rooms are decked out with hip furnishings, Wi-Fi and 42in widescreen TVs, and have plush bathrooms with fancy robes and toiletries. Comfortable beds are covered with pure white sheets and the windows look out over the ocean. An on-site restaurant, Posh, serves such delights as cognac seafood bisque, blackened rump steak and chocolate salami.

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf welcomed the investment by Mr Johnson describing the occasion as historic. The President expressed satisfaction that Mr. Johnson responded positively to her appeal two years ago to invest in Liberia.

The President praised the Black American businessman for believing in Liberia’s potential and the investment opportunities it offers. The President also spoke of a USD$30 million investment by Mr. Johnson to provide more business opportunities to Liberian entrepreneurs.

Hey.. I believe in your message, I think people need to see that there is a lot of good in Liberia. I am ready to show to the world especially America that Africa as a whole is not what they see in their news or commercials... I am trying to form a team to do a documentary on Liberia. All the good things and why people should invest, bring business to the country and why all these helping aids are only temporarily helping but not solving the problem.. The people need jobs and education which will help stabilize their independence. This can only happen if WE (young Liberians) show to top investors that our country is worth their businesses. Thanks to Bob Johnson for starting what I call "the wave". My name is Vida Jones. Born in Liberia, raised in Liberia and France. I now live in DC.. Contact me
