The Blowfish Group will ensure your experience in Lagos is pleasantly unforgettable. From the moment you fly into Lagos, you will be taken care of. A chauffeured car will be waiting to usher you off to Victoria Island, the heart of the city. The experience of Lagos starts from the moment you get off the plane, but it certainly does not end there.

The boutique Blowfish Hotel is a beautiful hotel created to make your stay in Lagos feel like home. Their modern and tastefully decorated rooms offer comfort with a touch of unpretentious luxury. The Blowfish Hotel is about the thread count in the sheets, the down comforters, the extensive buffet breakfast, the friendly staff, the view over the crystal blue swimming pool, the free Wi-Fi and the gym. But what makes The Blowfish Hotel especially unique is an exquisite lunch at their Italian restaurant La Veranda, an evening of jazz and a cocktails by their pool, the best sushi at Izanagi, a romantic dinner at Vellvett, or a choice of international cuisines at Purple Restaurant; it’s the seamless family group that they are all a part of.

The Blowfish Group brings you to one place, whether it is a cozy room to stay, a meal at one of their five restaurants or convenient grocery shopping, all within walking distance of each other. They have created an empire that caters to every taste.


A day spent at Blowfish Hotel may mean a day spent by the pool. Sipping cocktails, smoking shisha, reading a book, or catching up on gossip, whatever the reason, it should always include food. The Purple International Restaurant at Blowfish Hotel offers a variety of cuisines, including Continental, Lebanese, Thai and Indian. Whatever you’re craving, they will take care of it. Start with a Lebanese Mezze, Pad Thai or a Chicken Tikka from their Jewel of India menu for your main and for dessert, their famous molten Fondant au Chocolat. Maybe you’re just craving a Lebanese Shawarma. You can even order from Mashawis, their Lebanese grill outlet, where you can grab something quick to take away or have them deliver directly to you, wherever you may be.

La Veranda Italian restaurant overlooks the flamingo pink of the Blowfish Hotel and turquoise blue of the swimming pool. Their authentic Italian dishes include a range of mouthwatering pastas, wood fired pizzas, steaks and more, really capturing the essence of la cucina Italiana. Whether it’s a  casual lunch by the pool or a family dinner on their terrace, every occasion is the right occasion for Italian at La Veranda.

Venture out, beyond the pink walls of The Blowfish Hotel, to their famous Izanagi Restaurant, a haven for sushi lovers. Izanagi knows that Japanese cuisine is an art form. They have mastered the art, not only with traditional offerings, but also with their specially created Izanagi rolls. But Japanese cuisine is more than just sushi, sashimi and rolls. Izanagi has a variety of noodles, rice dishes, robotayaki and dumplings. Everything good happens over sushi: that big business deal, the special proposal, a milestone birthday, or just because you’re having a fantastic Tuesday.

But before you climb the stairs to Izanagi, have a peek into Vellvett Grill and Lounge. You will be tempted to enter into the world of Vellvett where the colors, textures and lights will hypnotise you to stay. With a selection of succulent grilled dishes, oriental flavours and easy favourites of burgers and sandwiches, lunch can turn into dinner which can turn into a night of dancing into the early morning. Vellvett is the crazy sibling in the family, where anything goes. But with all their restaurants, there is no compromising on their food. With a team of internationally trained chefs, food is at the center of it all.

With 9-7 Supermarket among the group, you can rest assured that all their produce is fresh and comes from the best suppliers around the world. From gourmet products to locally sourced fruit and vegetables, 9-7 maintains the high standards expected of the Blowfish Group.


Stay with the Blowfish Group because you know you never have to go far to satisfy any craving, to celebrate any occasion or just because. You know that everything is in one place, and that’s simply the best place.
