West Hills Mall is one of the most popular malls in Ghana and West Africa with a size of 27 700m². The shopping center was awarded the best honors in the International Developments category in the 2015 SAPOA property development awards for innovative excellence in South Africa.

The mall is located at Dukonah, Kasoa, on the Cape Coast Highway from Accra and near Weija.

It was officially commissioned in 2012 and after close to two (2) years (22 months), was ceremonially inaugurated in October 2014 by the then President John Dramani Mahama accompanied by the Togolese president, Faure Gnassingbe.

The ultra-modern facility publicly opened its doors to enthusiastic shoppers on November 25th, 2014. The name West Hills Mall has since gained a stellar reputation as one of the best retail centers in Ghana. The center houses several big names in retail such as Edgars, Game, Palace, Shoprite, and 59 other shops. Located just 30 minutes away from Central Accra, the mall is a blend of the West and the East areas of Accra. 

The ultra-modern design was an effort to bring comfort, convenience, and the local feel to the shopping experience. Divided into three (3) main areas, the West Hills Mall has an aisle that allows shoppers and visitors to move around the East, West, and Central parts of the shopping complex. 

The main shopping areas are the East and West areas of the mall. The central zone of the complex is reserved as a place to have fun and enjoy the scenery. The facility has a food court, a courtyard, and recreational facilities.

Only 30 minutes away (and 20km away from Accra Mall) from the busy nature of central Accra, the mall has a certain air that gives families and individuals the best shopping experience in the country.

The Facades of the complex were carefully designed to blend with the natural landscape characterized by the area. The location was picked and structured in the spirit of learning from the often congested traffic at the current Accra Mall. And when you find your way into the mall, you will find it has enough parking spaces with a 1,725 capacity.

The West Hills Mall has the advantage of the ease of flow of vehicles in and out of the facility, thanks to the dedicated underpass bridge on the highway. 

At the heart of what a shopping center, or a mall, means is that you can find anything you want to buy. And West Hills does a good job at that.

Your drive to the serene area will be more than rewarding with access to a wide variety of retailers, service providers like MTN, Rent Air, Delles Forex Bureau, and Jays Auto Spa, and restaurants like Barcelos, Chicken Inn, Creamy Inn, Pizza Inn and The Addo’s, fashion brands and stores like Aha, Spero, AJ Boaz, and Jocent, entertainment centers like Fun4Kids, Silverbird Cinema and Vulcano VIP Casino, electronics stores like Compu Ghana, Telefonika and Electronics Hub, Health facilities like Divine Organic Hub, Scentopia, Maybelline, and Diagnostic Center and several other facilities and stores.

The mall takes part in making these festivities much more enjoyable by putting together Karaoke nights, and “Make a Wish” campaigns to grant the wishes of customers, and you bet the kids are never left out.
