“We are excited to partner with the Landmark Africa Group on this project. With the rapid pace of urbanisation more and more guests are looking for the value, the convenience and the vitality that mixed-use provides. The Renaissance Lagos Hotel and Marriott Executive Apartments will be a significant addition to our strong Nigeria portfolio. There is a growing need for high calibre short and extended stay lodging in Nigeria and we believe the two hotels together will help bridge this gap,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director Middle East and Africa, Marriott International.

A new benchmark for mixed-use developments in the region


The hotels will be located in the Landmark Village precinct, a premier mixed-use, business, leisure and lifestyle development along the Atlantic Ocean waterfront in Victoria Island, the central business district of Lagos.

The 25-floor hotel will feature the 216 room full-service Renaissance Lagos Hotel and 44 room Marriott Executive Apartment offering extended stay apartments with space, ambience and the privacy of residential living. The hotels will offer a wide range of amenities, including local and international restaurants, spa facilities, a fitness centre, and an infinity pool with access to a 100-meter-long boardwalk overlooking a vibrant beach club offering exciting watersports.

“Marriott International is synonymous with quality and unique lifestyle experiences globally, which we, at the Landmark Africa Group continuously strive to align ourselves with. We look forward to bringing Marriott’s hospitality and passion for excellence to the Landmark Village setting a new benchmark for mixed-use developments in the region,” said Paul Onwuanibe, chief executive officer, Landmark.

Designed to be the first Lagos equivalent of the Rockefeller Centre in New York, Canary Wharf in London, Rosebank in Johannesburg and Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, the Landmark Village features office spaces, luxury apartments, high-end retail as well as international restaurants. It is rapidly emerging as a leading mixed-use development on the West African Coastline.
