The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies
worldwide, has opened the very first Radisson Blu Hotel in Nigeria: the
Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, Lagos VI with 170 guest rooms.
"Nigeria is one of our key focus markets on the African continent. The
country offers a great potential for the development of our core brands
Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson, and we are delighted to open our first
property in the capital city of Lagos", said Kurt Ritter, president & CEO of
Rezidor during his visit to Nigeria. Rezidor is one of the most important
international hotel operators in Africa and features the largest pipeline of
hotels under development in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, Lagos VI is nestled along the Lagos
Lagoon waterfront area of Victoria Island - ideally placed in the heart of
the business district and close to the Mega Plaza shopping centre, consulates
and the banking district. Bar Beach, the National Museum, the Eko Expo Centre
and the Lekki Conservation Centre are also all within easy reach. Murtala
Muhammed International Airport is less than 40 kilometres away.
The hotel has been designed by the Swedish hospitality designer Christian
Lundwall; he has decorated the 170 guest rooms in two unique styles. All
rooms offer views of Lagos Lagoon or the city, have both bathtub and walk-in
shower, and guests benefit from Radisson Blu signature services such as free
high speed internet access.
The all-day-dining Voyage Restaurant with own terrace serves an
international buffet with a choice of Nigerian and continental dishes, in
addition to an à la carte menu with dishes from the region and Europe. The
Surface Bar & Grill on the terrace offers al fresco dining and views over the
lagoon, with jetty access for dining cruises. And the View bar lounge
promises a stunning lagoon panorama, light snacks and drinks.
With a top-floor Business Lounge, 4 spacious meeting rooms and 2
boardrooms, the hotel has some of the finest meeting facilities in Lagos.
Three of the conference rooms are located on the ground floor and provide
access to the veranda, which overlooks the lagoon and can be reserved for
special events. For relaxation after a day of sightseeing or meetings, the
new property includes a fitness and wellness area with gym, massage rooms,
