Benue State, “The food basket of the Nation”, is a serene , peace loving town located in the middle belt of Nigeria.
The people are famous for their hospitable nature, peaceful and extremely cheerful disposition.
Also for their rich cultural heritage and their love and respect for tradition .
It is no surprise that walking into the premises of the Benue Hotels and Resort put me at the immediate ease and comfort that it did.
Nestled in the heart of Makurdi Town is this urban oasis of premium hospitality and service.
Up until the 90s, this used to be a go to spot for visitors and indegenes alike.
However due to poor management and other issues unknown to me, it experienced a major dip.
About a year or two ago, I got invited for a little sit-out. I was rather confused when I asked where and my friends named the hotel. Not just that but the fact they said “pool side”?
Man, I had to see this for myself and you know what? I was completely blown away!
The sheer picturesque view of this place is totally unbelievable. Especially if you’re familiar with what it looked like years ago.
One of my favorite things about the hotel is how well lit it is at night. I cannot even put in words how utterly serene the environment is.
(Regrettably, none of the photos do justice to how great this place is.)
From the reception to the lobby and the inner bar and lounge, there is no denying the thought put into the aesthetics to give their customers the ultimate experience.
Another amazing view is the one by the pool area. Totally at ease in one of the wicker chairs by the pool, I just had no worries at the moment . Best part? The chairs rotate! I didn’t even care if I looked like an agbabya 😀
Facilities and Services
Besides the pool and indoor bar, there’s one by the pool as well. There’s also a bush bar, a gym, a mini-zoo, a laundry and of course their marquee; perfect for whatever occasions you have planned out.
With different options of exquisitely furnished rooms and suite types to suit whatever your budget may be. This includes 24/7 room service and free Wi-Fi ( which is actually open to anyone within the premises).
Benue Hotels and Resorts has definitely come a very long way from what it used to be and I can’t even deny how glad I am about that.
