The upscale travellers and leisure buffs that were at the opening of Four Points By Sheraton Lekki, Lagos, in September 2010 need not ask how their beautiful hotel brand is doing. The hotel, which is among the 145 properties of the Four Points By Sheraton brand in 25 countries, seems to have performed above expectation.
The smile on the face of Christian Tomandl, the general manager, confirms a successful one year in the burgeoning Nigerian hospitality industry. Of course, Starwood Group, owner of the Four Points brand and other eight hotel brands, is happier for the success so far.
Smiling from his office in a recent interview, Tomandl says the hotel has for the one year offered the self-sufficient traveller a new kind of style and comfort combined with a spirited ‘can-do’ service, all at honest value.
“Our guests can confirm our commitment to sustaining a one-stop outfit for best of hospitality services, complementary facilities and pamper,” he says confidently.
From the entrance, guests feel the exclusivity and traditional warmth of the Starwood Hotels & Resort Worldwide with extended complements in the guest rooms, suites, restaurant, lobby bar, open-air bar and barbeque, and juice bar.
Ideally located at the Oniru Royal Estate, between Victoria Island and Lekki, home to the consular offices of many countries as well as an array of cultural centres, art galleries, and corporate headquarters, the 234-room hotel is truly a classic difference that indulges guests for more leisure.
For the one year in business, the 234 great rooms with comfortable beds and extras have ensured blissful night’s sleep for guests, while the hotel’s state-of-the-art spa and wellness centre offers more than enough pamper for whoever cares.
The dining experience since then has also improved with restaurants offering a blend of local and international cuisines, especially the French Brassiere Restaurant and a bar that heighten guests’ delightful experiences at the dining table and bar. The informal high-energy atmosphere at the Sports bar indulges a leisure buff.
Virtually every business mogul on visit to Lagos dines at the restaurant. The dining experience combines comfort and food that result in a great meal, notes the general manager.
For the one year, the 821 square metres meeting and function space with a ball room, and four meeting rooms have played host to top events in Lagos from corporate functions to social events.
In stock are state-of-the-art audio-visual resources you need and a team of event professionals that will handle all the details so that guests will have more time left over for relaxation.
The hotel also parades other facilities that enable guests explore the full Four Points experience, such as signature bath amenities, personalised wake-up service, iPod docking station, internet-based printing service in rooms (by request), Four Points By Sheraton Four comfort bed, ergonomic desk chair, lagoon-view rooms, among others.
But one thing the general manager wants you to always experience on your stay at the hotel is the Four Points spa and fitness experience. There, the spa and fitness experience takes one on a complete sensorial journey complemented by a spectacular range of beauty treatments known for their purity and authenticity. Truly, you will discover an inspiring vision of beauty and health for better quality of life.
Going forward, the hotel hopes to expand with an additional outlet of the Four Points brand at Ikeja. So, what is it you are looking for?
