ENCOMIUM Weekly spoke with the CEO and Managing Director of the hospitality outfit, Kayode Bakare about the new package and more…
Airport Hotel was established in 1942 with 277 rooms. What is management doing to upgrade the hotel to modern standard?
If you go into the hotel you will see the new development that is going on. Part of it is the special Valentine programme that we would stage on February 14, 2016. Adding to that, there are many programmes lined up for our guests.
We have arranged to start activities at any festive period where guests would have access to all our facilities.
Considering the N65,000 for three days lodging including access to all your facilities, is there subsidy for this price, are children included if the price is for couples?
We make our price that cheap, because the day, we are talking about is the day of love as our own contribution to the festivities. So, whoever desires to come with their children, there is room for that and a lot of activities would be available for them to enjoy.
Is there any plan for youths and young couples?
Love is not limited to a particular age. The event is for the young and old people. That is why we have artistes like Gbenga Adeyinka performing. The event would be full of fun. There would be pool side party, gym, etc.
Is there a plan to make Lagos Airport Hotel one of the greatest entertainment hubs where people can relax in a more beautiful ambience?
As you can see, this is a new management. That’s why we are staging this Valentine show and the activities would not be limited to what I have mentioned. The management will activate the programme for the whole year with different activities.
Can you please breakdown the N65,000 and what are you giving to guests?
The N65,000 entitles couples to three night accommodation with three square meals. It also allows the couple to participate in all the events for free.
