Yacht Hotel Moored in Lagos Harbor
We kept hearing rumors but did not believe them. They are true. There is a yacht hotel moored in Lagos Harbor right next to the yacht club! I saw it today. The Sunborn Yacht Hotel was last moored in London. Check out the article in the Vanguard paper. Here is an excerpt from the article.
"The obviously elated Afikuyomi described the yacht hotel as a delightful addition to the Lagos skyline as it is going to add value by being one of the very few floating hotels in the world thereby putting Lagos in the league of cities like New York, Barcelona, Paris and Finland just as it has already put the state ahead of cities like Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha which are said to be at various stages of setting up similar floating hotels."
It will be interesting to see who stays here. We just might have to check it out ourselves.
