We spent our Christmas 2015 at this resort. It was a nice experience, quiet and serene and we were happy to escape the madness that is Lagos. It is about 4 hours by road from Lagos. Facilities and services were reasonably priced, though the menu choices could be improved and increased. I wouldn't mind visiting again.

Both the Executive and the Standard rooms are on point! Compact, comfortable and well-laid bed. The Restaurant was great with delicious and pocket friendly menu especially the Fish pepper-soup. The Resort was simple an eye-opener; an Eden in the midst of Ilesa!

I stayed there with my husband and another couple and we had such an awesome time! The rooms were reasonably priced, their food was good, and the staff very friendly. The only downside was that their wifi never seemed to work the whole time. All in all, it's a really serene place. We will definitely be back. Thumbs up, Zenababs!

i stayed here for 2 days in november. realy impressed with the set-up. Not bad at all. Would rate it a 4 star hotel for it's location. Staff was friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were satisfied. location was okay as its not far from the town centre. i think about 15-20 minutes drive.

my stay was quite pleasant. The grounds are surprisingly very well maintained with beautiful greenery. Such a soothing environment. Its not the glitter and blinding lights of the big city, its just a breath of fresh air in the middle of nowhere actually. A sweet escape for a short stay out of the hassles of the city. I suggest you... More

While working in Ilesa for three months, I regularly visited the hotel at weekends to enjoy the well kept gardens, eat in the onsite restaurant and swim in the pool.

In terms of global standards Zenababs will rank quite low but on Nigerian standards it is quite excellent. Zenababs is located on a very large piece of land that has both accommodation as well as event facilities. Accommodation is basic but clean. Service is adequate. Food is limited in choice and basic in preparation. Gym equipment does not work all... More
