PROTEA HOTEL IKEJA IS THE BEST HOTEL IN LAGOS
Cape Town, 12 November 2009: Protea Hotels is synonymous with winning awards for its hotels throughout Africa. This time, Protea Hotel Ikeja in Lagos, Nigeria, won the acclaimed accolade of the Best Hotel in Lagos at the Africa Travel Awards. These awards are held annually at the Akwaaba Travel Market, one of the few travel events in West Africa.
Every year, people in the travel industry meet in Lagos and attend the largest business-to-business travel event in West Africa. The Africa Travel Awards are aimed at identifying the quality products for the use of discerning travellers from inbound, outbound and domestic perspectives.
“Awards are a way of maintaining pride within the industry and we are honoured and proud to receive the recognition for the hard work our entire team has put in to offer guests exceptional service in making them feel welcome to Nigeria, which is known for its warm and friendly people,” said Pieter Bekker, Regional Director for West Africa, Protea Hotels. “This is a great moment of recognition and excellence!”
Nigeria is a strategic region for Protea Hotels’ future expansion as it is a major business gateway in Africa. Protea Hotels is the largest International Hotel Group in Nigeria, with a presence of 11 hotels in the key areas of Ikeja, Victoria Island, Port Harcourt, Lekki Penisula and Abuja. Not restricted to Nigeria, Protea Hotels continues to make a dominant mark throughout the African continent, with properties in Namibia, Kenya, Ghana, Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia.
