It was an event that many had anxiously awaited and worked hard for: the Nigeria Travel Awards 2019, organized by Jumia Travel on March 11th, 2019.
Outcries of joy came up when Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort was announced as winner in the category “Best Leisure Hotel 2019”.
General Manager Ronald Stilting stated in his vote of thanks “The award is a highly anticipated confirmation that Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort continues to be the best in class in Nigeria. This is even more significant for us, as early 2018, after the departure of the LeMeridien-brand, everybody said that there would be a complete breakdown of the facilities and service. Our staff, after initial hesitation, remained focused on service delivery and continued to be proud of the product and services they deliver to the guests. This award is earned by all our staff and we will surely celebrate it upon arrival, and it gives us the confidence to continue on the road we are on. We have achieved a lot in 2018, both visible for the guests and behind the scenes. A new chiller plant and generator were installed, as well as new curtains, carpets, TV’s, PABX etc. . The golf course is in top-shape and feedback from golfers confirm that we have the best golf course in West-Africa. We were also proud to receive the Super Eagles again, who prepared for the Soccer World Championship and feel really at home in Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort. We will continue to work hard to improve the facilities and motivate our staff, as the success can only be achieved by happy and motivated staff.”
Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort is a location for both business, conference and leisure. Located in the safe environment of Akwa Ibom State with excellent infrastructure and only an hour flight from Abuja or Lagos, conditions for a pleasant and successful stay are best from the start. Located on 147 hectares of well-maintained landscape amidst pristine palm-tree forest and rivers, one feels immediately relaxed and invigorated. It offers excellent accommodation in 163 rooms and suites on 5-star level, and several restaurants and bars. The Marina, located directly at the river with an art-gallery and serving Akwa Ibom specialties and best pizza in the region, is surely a highlight.
The fact that it is considered a top-destination for leisure is not a surprise: aside from the world-class 18 hole golf course, Ibom Hotel Golf Resort offers a large swimming pool (with children’s pool), large gym with pool-view and personal trainer, tennis & squash courts, hair- & beauty salon, spa, sauna, bicycle rental, pool-table, games room, football-pitch, volleyball course, guided tours, daily live-music and a night club. During the holidays special children and family programs are offered.
With 7 meeting rooms and a large banquet hall with a capacity of more than 700 persons, Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort is also an excellent choice for corporate events, conferences, AGM’s and team building sessions etc. Due to the location there will be no distractions for participants, so results can be achieved.
Ibom Hotel& Golf Resort expects to organize 2 golf events this year, but will also be the venue for several other golf tournaments by companies and organisations. Corporates are invited to contact us for sponsorship, cooperation and teambuilding events etc.
