Radisson Blu Anchorage Lagos woos guests with new-look business lounge
The Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel in Victoria Island Lagos has completed a massive renovation of the business lounge, which is located on the hotel’s exclusive executive floor. The project was undertaken by AJ5 Architects, a leading South African building consulting firm, which handles several high-end projects within the African continent. The transformed business lounge offers the quintessential luxury and convenience that is synonymous with the Radisson Hotel Group brand.
The hotel has a reputation of being an “urban resort” signifying a delicate fusion of business and leisure where after a long business day one can relax at the hanging mini balconies and experience the exasperating views of the Lagos lagoon, with the highlight being able to spot the sunset over the horizon of the Atlantic waters. The lounge is exclusively accessible to guests who are resident on the business floors, a premium accommodation floor catering for the needs of senior company executives and other discerning travellers who want to enjoy enhanced serenity.
As the world is moving more towards working from home or hotels, in line with this trend the business lounge offers a secluded working area with the requisite social distancing considerations and appropriate connectivity to augment the office experience.
The culinary experience at the lounge has been revamped to compliment the facelift, with opening from 07h00 to 20h00, the lounge offers a combination of fresh, modern, and scrumptious treats. The lounge also features offerings from the hotel’s internationally renowned Executive Chef Jade, who parades his gourmet skills through an intriguing display of crisp healthy cereals, thick Greek yoghurt, fresh sweet vegetables, and earthy nuts.
The lounge also offers a wide selection of hot beverages as well as cold refreshments.
Commenting on the impact the business lounge has on guests’ satisfaction, Ahmed Raza, general manager of the hotel said he has interacted with several guests in the lounge and the feedback has been humbling. “These changes are greatly appreciated by our patrons who spend long days at work and the lounge is that desired positive disruption just to unwind and reboot for the following day.
“Most of our clients on the business lounge have the hotel as their second home and they value the opportunity of getting out of their rooms to network with other fellow business executives, ” the GM explained.
He further said that in a bid to stay ahead of customers’ expectations, the hotel would be embarking on further renovation of the corridors, the restaurants, and public areas.
For him, it is indeed exciting times ahead at the Radisson Blu Anchorage.
