On Nwaniba Road, a few kilometres away from Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, lies a hospitality jewel. Tucked in a lush tropical landscape, Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort is a prime leisure and business hotel by all standards.

The serenity of the environment amidst tropical beauties easily gives away the outfit as a top get-away and holiday option for discerning vacation seekers.

Its world-class accommodation option is a true complement of other facilities conceptualised by Akwa Ibom State, the owners, to glue guests to a sustained leisure outing and memorable experience afterwards. The private terraces in each of the 130 guest rooms, 26 suites, and seven chalets will indulge you. Besides, each room looks over a forest of palm trees and the golf course. The panoramic view created by this special offering is compared to that of viewing the Atlantic Ocean from the comfort of one’s hotel room.

Of course, the height of excitement at the resort is the 18-hole golf course, which has attracted best golfers from far and near to battle for honour on its lush and well-trimmed lawns. The emphasis on the exclusive and luxury sports allows guests to meet with top personalities who, while on a golf retreat, may share same table or swimming time with other guests. The rooms and other excitements may not make sense to you if you visit when golf tournaments are on.

Apart from the golf course, the resort indulges guests in memorable leisure through other facilities such as bars, stylish restaurants, Marina Club House & BBQ Terrace, retail shops, a hair salon, and a VIP lounge.

With all its nature endowments and the world-class facilities, the idyllic resort truly woos you to a golf and leisure retreat.

Similarly, the needs of the corporate and business worlds are adequately met through the hotel’s conference and banquet facilities. While the banquet hall accommodates up to 1,000 people, there are various options for meetings and seminars. As well, the hotel’s business centre includes rental office space and function rooms.

Emphasis is further laid on leisure with other recreational facilities such as a fitness and health club, outdoor children’s and adult pools, tennis and squash facilities, Ibom Golf Club, as well as, a riverside marina with a floating jetty.

Lodging in the hotel gives you the opportunity to join every other guest to discover and explore signature dishes created by experienced culinary team.

Of course, the Akwa Ibom axis is known for its great traditional culinary prowess. You will be feted with enough local dishes that keep whetting your appetite.

Now that more airlines fly to Uyo, the journey to discover this hide-out is short and more convenient. But an ardent golfer will not forget a swell experience at the resort in a hurry.
