Lagos Radisson Blu hotel closes for renovation
THE five-star water-front Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel located on Victoria Island, Lagos has shut down operations to conduct extensive renovation of its facilities, as part of its management’s commitment to retain standards and remain the hospitality of first choice for guests visiting Lagos for business or pleasure.
According to a statement by Anchorage Leisures Limited, owners of the facility, the renovation exercise will “cover areas such as power generation, cooling system as well as other critical equipment.”
“The magnitude of the renovation work has however necessitated shutting down of business operations for the duration of the renovation”, the statement further indicated.
The management of the firm has also said that the renovation activities had led to the disengagement of staff given the required duration for the renovation.
The firm, however, stressed that it would abide by all contractual terms by ensuring payment of all that is due the affected staff.
Reiterating appreciation for its people, it noted its commitment to welfare of its staff, stressing that, “even when we experienced very low patronage during the Ebola crisis in Nigeria, we retained all our staff, however, the magnitude of this renovation work has compelled a total shut down of business activities”.
The management has, however, assured its numerous guests in Nigeria and across the world that the hospitality will re-open with increased focus on delivery of superior quality service.
“We are mindful of our position as a premium hospitality brand and we will continue to do everything required to maintain our premium standard and ensure our guests are treated to the best-in-class hospitality services available anywhere in the world”, the statement added.
