Your senses are magnified when you disconnect from the chaos of Lagos life. Colours are brighter; the breeze is cooler; your sense of taste is sharpened and your heart rate slows down, allowing you to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Jara Beach Resort enhances your senses. From the moment you enter, you can feel the disconnect. From the mystical archway to the immediate view of the ocean and beach as you walk in, there is an instant sense of release and relaxation. The boutique resort is nestled on the pristine beach in Museyo, next to Eleko. With just six rooms, this intimate resort is a reminder that a staycation is sometimes better than traveling.
The beachfront resort is the only all-inclusive resort in Lagos, offering all three meals, snacks and drinks, including alcohol, in your stay. They are boutique but offer the services you expect from a luxury resort, from a pick-up service to bring you comfortably from your door to theirs, to your own concierge that will ensure you are well taken care of during your stay with them. It’s that little bit more that is Jara. The beautifully designed space, with its attention to detail and its blue and white colour scheme, is a constant reminder that the beach is just a few meters away.
Wake up to the sound of the waves and an ocean view. A coffee in hand, take time to enjoy your balcony, sit back and breathe in the fresh morning breeze. Close your eyes and let the early morning sun rays that shine through the palm trees kiss your skin ever so lightly, enough to put a smile on your face. Enjoy a moment of complete bliss.
Dressed in your beach wear, without a care in the world, stroll down to the homemade gourmet breakfast, made especially for you. It’s that little bit more that is Jara. Sit on the white deck and continue to enjoy the golden beach and the crashing waves. After breakfast, enjoy a morning stroll on the beach, dip your toes into the cool Atlantic, and take in the magnificence of the seemingly never-ending ocean.
Take a dive into the crystal blue pool. Swim a few easy laps or simply let yourself float. In that moment, there isn’t a worry in the world. Time for a pool-side cocktail and one-on-one time for you and your book. Grab a snack from the snack station while you wait for lunchtime. From a gourmet barbeque and crispy battered fish and chips to homemade pasta, juicy burger and wood-fired pizza, lunch is well thought out, the perfect meal for the beach. It’s that little bit more that is Jara.
A fresh cocktail is the perfect segue from lunch back to the pool. The many activities that are scattered around the property, from the giant noughts and crosses and volleyball, to the table tennis and boules are tempting, but you’re basking in the sun so maybe later.
Before you know it, you are tempted by a sweet treat, something to remind you that you are taking a break and diets don’t count when you’re in relaxation mode. Your personal concierge makes sure you are well hydrated and you want for nothing while you’re at Jara. It’s that little bit more that is Jara.
Then it’s time for a quick shower and change out of swimwear into a cool and comfortable post-beach wear. Sip a sundowner, a cocktail to enjoy the incredible sunset, and the perfect shift from afternoon to evening. The intimate dinner is a three-course affair with each course complementing the next. The ocean breeze keeps you cool throughout dinner, so much so that a post-dinner visit to the fire-pit is a warm welcome. Cosy up by the fire and don’t take for granted what a perfect day it was. Because they’ve thought of everything at Jara. It’s that little more that is Jara.
Whether you’re a guest for just a day or a few days and nights, the experience will always be unforgettable. But careful, Jara Beach Resort can be addictive!
