Hi there!

I'm Margaret, a female traveller from Nigeria, and welcome to my personal blog , TheAjalaBug.com.

Here, I document my adventures in travel and life experiences generally. Hope you get inspired!

Starwood | Le Meridien Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort (Marriott)

Starwood | Le Meridien Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort (Marriott)

Le Meridien is a luxury hotel tucked far away in Akwa Ibom. The hotel is everything, well, in the Nigeria sense of it. Amazing views, good food and a massive space. It's an all-in-one getaway resort. The only thing missing is a cinema :)

I stayed at the Le Meridien Resort in Uyo for a night on my trip to Akwa Ibom State. Read about the trip here
ย 

For the records, the resort I lodged at was Le Meridien and not Ibom hotel and golf resort. lol. Okay for those who don't know, Starwood left Nigeria and the new owners have renamed/rebranded the hotel. Hopefully the standard improves :)

Back to my story....On arrival at the hotel, the standard rooms which are usually on the ground floor were fully occupied. I was sad but mostly happy. Who likes to stay on the ground floor in a hotel?! Definitely not me. Quickly, I expressed my displeasure about it to the manager and in no time, my room was upgraded. The room happened to be on the second floor with an amazing view of the pool and beautiful palm trees. My first impression of the resort left a good taste in my mouth.

MY HIGHLIGHTS AT LE MERIDIEN RESORT

  1. The standard room I stayed in had a beautiful view, facing the massive pool. It was quiet and spacious; the bed and pillows were extremely soft and comfortable. 

  2. The manager was very nice and courteous, same with the staff.

  3. The wonderful golf course

  4. The swimming pool and beach hut

  5. Amazing food with loads of options

  6. Everything...

Le Meridien is the perfect resort for a getaway, retreat and wedding reception.

CONS

  1. The internet wasn't fast outside the rooms

  2. There was no one available to assist me around the resort

In all my travels in Nigeria, I have never seen a fridge so stocked like that of Le Meridien. It is a trap though. The price is like 5 times the original price. lol

The view from my room was extremely therapeutic and my stay was relaxing. Please allow me take you on a tour below

Final thoughts on Le Meridien

Le Mรฉridien Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort is definitely one of the best resorts in Nigeria with various activities (golfing, swimming, cycling etc) to keep you engaged when lodged in. I will not hesitate to recommend the resort to everyone. Hopefully, I get the chance to visit again, now it is called Ibom hotel and golf resort. 

Have you visited the resort before? Any divergent views or experience from mine? Please share with us in the comment section. We would love to read from you.

Regards,

Margaret.
