The Five Cowrie Creek is a relatively small yet famous segment of the Lagos Lagoon that
stretches more than 50km. Three bridges link the most affluent, trendy and bustling hubs of
Lagos, from Victoria Island to Ikoyi, and Ikoyi to Lekki. Some of the most lavish boats and
yachts cruise along the Five Cowrie Creek taking passengers to beach resorts, beach homes
and leisurely sunset rides with a glass of champagne in hand. To have a view of this part of the
Lagos Lagoon is a privilege only a few Lagosians enjoy. This is why the exclusive location of the
newly opened luxury boutique hotel, The Yacht Hotel, is so unique.
Located in the heart of the bustling and very trendy Lekki, The Yacht Hotel has recreated the
extravagant experience of being on a yacht while staying on dry land. As soon as you enter the
beautifully designed hotel, the eye is directed from the back of the lobby to the restaurant
terrace where the lagoon water sparkles past a glass wall, giving you the very real sensation of
being on a yacht. The Yacht Hotel offers sophisticated luxury and comfort, and most
importantly, exceptional hospitality without pretentiousness. With only 22 rooms, or cabins, as
they are referred to, this intimate boutique hotel has both city and lagoon views, with the
seaview rooms having balconies and panoramic views of the iconic Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge.
Every detail has been thought of when recreating the luxury yacht experience, from the lighting
in the hallways and doors with portholes to the terrace awnings that mirror those on yachts.
The Yacht Hotel has two conference rooms which are small or big enough for any occasion, a
small gym, the renowned Oriki Spa and a world-class restaurant with stunning panoramic
waterfront views. The modern fine dining restaurant is simply sensational. The menu is elegant,
yet mouthwatering. From warm homemade bread with butter that melts on contact, to
melt-in-your-mouth Chocolate Fondant, each ingredient used in every dish is of the highest
quality with no exception and no compromise. The food is reflective of the high standards
maintained at the Yacht Hotel to ensure your experience is unforgettable. The hotel is located in
the heart of Lekki, surrounded by a diverse range of shops, restaurants and tourist spots so you
are never far from the excitement. However, if you’re looking for that quiet and relaxing
getaway, you can find it without having to leave the hotel.
Escape from the mundane to a night of opulence. Spend an afternoon reading a book on your
terrace in your cabin; treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment at Oriki Spa; indulge with a fine
dining dinner with friends in their waterfront restaurant; and end on a high note with an exclusive
sunset cruise along the creek leaving from the hotel dock. The Yacht Hotel gives you an
experience you will cherish.
