Jubilee Chalets Epe | Resorts in Nigeria

Jubilee Chalets Epe | Resorts in Nigeria

Enjoy the little things in life, like a road trip to Jubilee Chalets Epe. Highly recommended.

If you follow my Instagram page , you will know that Lola of Unravelling Nigeria and I took a road trip to Jubilee Chalets Epe. 

We drove for about 45 minutes from VGC and before we could say Jack, we were at Epe. It was quite an enjoyable ride as we chatted all through the trip.

On arriving at Epe, we weren't certain about which direction to follow, so we stopped to make enquiries from a passerby and she was very precise. As we followed her directions, we noticed Jubilee Chalets had installed signage on all the streets leading up to the resort. That was quiet impressive. 

A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT JUBILEE CHALETS EPE

Jubilee Chalet used to be a reserved VIP Chalet hosting particularly government functions. Due to irregular usage, the state government decided to renovate it and hand it over to the management of MP hotels to operate and maintain. The resort was opened to the general public in December 2017.

Jubilee Chalets is now a tourist destination offering an experience for relaxation, meetings and events.

THE RESTAURANT

The restaurant has a spacious sitting area for over 100 people. Like Lola  mentioned on Instagram, all the meals we had was a HIT. I didn't complain about either the foods or the drinks. Delicious fish infused delicacies (not in all meals though). Chef Barth (hopefully I got that right!.) does a great job.

PROS

  1. The aesthetics of each chalet is topnotch. The exterior may look basic but definitely not the interior

  2. The chalets are clean and smell like luxury. Could it be the air-fresheners or my mind?!

  3. It is the perfect home away from home with a relaxing ambiance

  4. Suitable for almost every type of function, preferably large gatherings

  5. The meals are good

  6. Proximity to the fish market 

  7. The large space

  8. The amenities

  9. The ambience

CONS

  1. Breakfast is buffet and complimentary, which is good but you might be unable to order a'la carte room service when buffet is served

  2. Depending on which side of the fence you are, some people will consider the drive from the city centre to Epe to be tedious. I love driving and I love road trips, so this is not an issue for me, but thought to mention.

  3. There is sufficient space in the premises to include a kids play area, to make it more kids friendly.

Jubilee Chalets Epe is a cozy resort with the view of the lagoon and its a place for escaping the hustle and bustle of the Lagos metropolis

Final thoughts

This beautiful resort which is tucked away in a quiet town of Epe is highly recommended.

You already know I had a good stay at the resort. So to you reading, I will help speed up your decision to drive to Jubilee Chalet by informing you that with a budget of N40,000 or less (room and feeding inclusive) for two people, a weekend stay is possible.

Thanks for reading this article, till my next adventure, be kind. Don't forget, we would love to hear from you in the comment section.

Best,

Margaret.
