In 2014, the State Government of Akwa Ibom signed a management agreement with Starwood Hotels for a (4-Star) Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in Ikot Ekpene. Most of the construction work was completed in 2015, however the Hotel will be opened in April 2017 according to Starwood.
This hotel will be the second in Akwa Ibom to be managed by Starwood, who currently operate the well performing Le Méridien Ibom Hotel and Golf Resort in Uyo. It will also be the 5th hotel currently in their pipeline for Nigeria, potentially increasing the country’s hotel room supply by 1,000 rooms. The four other projects in the pipeline include one Luxury Collection (on hold) in Ikoyi, Lagos and three Four Points by Sheraton hotels to be located in Ikeja, Ibadan and Benin City.
Amenities and facilities include a banquet hall, meeting rooms, spa, indoor and outdoor restaurants, swimming pool, tennis courts, club lounge and a roof terrace. Renaissance Construction served as the contractor for this project.
