3. The only resort with a full blown Football Academy and Professional Club

It is not by accident that the brand name of this Ibadan-based hospitality sanctuary has ‘Sports’ in it. It is a statement of intent by the management that sport is an integral part of their hospitality services. However, with a corporate vision statement that includes “nurturing of football talents to stardom“, football business is a strategic business unit of this fast rising hospitality outfit.

ILaji Football Club (IFC) Team

Initially, Ilaji Hotels and Sports Resort signed a pact with SWIEQI United FC, a football club in Malta. After that, ILaji Resort’s management took an even higher step by securing another partnership with Malaga CF, Spain.

This is to say, with this arrangement, talented football players in ILaji Football Academy have a bright chance of playing for the Spanish football Club.

4. The highest number of fountains

Sight of flowing water is aesthetic and therapeutic. Because of this, the management of ILaji Hotels and Sports Resort has invested heavily in water fountains. The natural flowing water within the 200 acres of land that the Resort occupies presently is nothing compared to these fountains.

In addition, over eight different water fountains are in different parts of the Resort. These include a massive water fall-like fountain at the VIP Swimming Pool section, two water fountains at the children’s arena, two dance and musical water fountains and three other aesthetically designed water fountains. Therefore, guests of this fast-rising hospitality outfit can never be short of exquisite relaxation and amusement spots or better still, breadth-taking backgrounds for selfies and photo shoots.

5. An ever-expanding corporate entity

One thing that amazes the visitors of ILaji Hotels and Sports Resort is the daily expansion of the hospitality outfit.

The management of the Akanran-based Resort is yet to show any sign of ‘structural fatigue’ as it keeps pumping millions of Naira in erecting new structures. Hence, other resorts in Nigeria can hardly match the state-of-the-art facilities at the Resort.

For instance, a guest who has been patiently waiting for the official commissioning of the Resort recently expressed his excitement. He stated that there is hardly any day he would not see construction workers building one thing or the other. He has been observing this in the Resort for the past three years. To buttress his point, a visit to the South end of the Resort showed arrays of construction works. New facilities such as mini football stadium, another gigantic love/fountain garden etc. are at different stages of completion.

6. The hospitality outfit with the tightest security measures

One of the important hallmarks of any relaxation outfit is the state of its security. No reasonable guest would cough out their hard earned money to lodge in a place, no matter how luxurious, if his security is in doubt.

Every hospitality outfit ensures that adequate security is in place. But, the management of ILaji Resort has gone a step higher, ensuring that there is human security in place. There is a police post, private security guards and presence of mobile police officers within the Resort. Moreover, it has invested in digital and technological security gadgets. As a result, a walk around ILaji Hotels and Sports Resort reveals a facility that has CCTV cameras in strategic places. This is to monitor the movement of guests and tourists alike.

Moreover, the Resort boasts of having the most sophisticated body and luggage scanning machines. So, it is one of the most secure places to visit in Nigeria.
