‘La Campagne Tropicana is best resort in West Africa’
Following its recent survey, Tourism Beyond Borders, an international tourism rating body based Germany, has named La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort as the best in West Africa and one of the top in the world. The resort is located in Ikegun Village Ibeju – Lekki, Lagos State.
According to the agency, “La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort located in Lagos Nigeria has been found to be the best in West-Africa based on the criteria of location, innovation, security, facility development, global networking and multi –theme configuration.”
Speaking on the rating, President of Tourism Beyond Borders, Mr. Franco Hert, said the Consummate Beach Resort Research project was carried out between June 2016 and December 2017, “with key interest in location, innovation, branding, security, facility development and sustenance. In all these, La Campagne clearly led and others followed.”
Hert observed that, “while some of the beach resort operators in Africa and particularly in West Africa, are mono-focal in their prism of development of the beach, La Campagne’s handler towers by not only being multi-focal in branding, but consistently ensuring the planting of new facilities which keep attracting patrons.
He described the location, setting and sophisticated facilities of the resort as a perfect blend with nature.“La Campagne is located in an ambience of aquatic splendour of the Atlantic Ocean, buffet by a prosperous mangrove vegetation of the Ibeju Lekki and an evergreen ecotourism forest harbouring friendly fauna and flora. It has a set of accommodation facilities constructed largely with local contents in an extra-ordinary tropical style most of which hang on a tree or swinging over the Lagoon”
He further revealed that, “This tropical content is richly infused with cosmopolitan fixtures and fittings balanced on the scale of posh, classy and luxury hemmed by swimming pools of lovely shapes and figures. It is the only resort in the world which has made history of having within its geographical conclave the longest swimming pool beside the ocean.”
“It is one resort in the whole of Africa where a regular patron is assured of a new experience any time he visits. La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort is certainly the best of the rest. We testify to this,” he said.
The Founder and President of La Campagne, Otunba Wanle Akinboboye, who is elated by the development, described the award as a welcomed one and a testimonial to the resourcefulness of the resort and what it stood for in terms of window to Africa tourism offering where man and nature live in harmony.
The Africa themed resort, which is known for its engaging nature and boosting some of the best and unique facilities nestled against an inviting natural pull, has over the years won different awards and accolades from different organisations, governments and individuals for its outstanding location, facilities and services.
It would be recalled that the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) once honoured La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort with an award of distinction. The occasion was the 2015 Commerce and Industry Awards, which held at the MUSON Centre Onikan, Lagos.
Paceworking, a Nigerian-led organisation based in London, also presented African Travel Market and Tourism personality award to the resort. The facility was named the best resort in Nigeria, while it was also recognised as the best beach resort in West Africa by Akwaaba.
