5 years ago, we spent our wedding night at Southern Sun and now 5 years later the experience was seamless. A weekend at Southern Sun was a lovely getaway from the hustle and bustle of Lagos. The staff were courteous and professional in all our interactions with them.

Cosy rooms, excellent service, great meals, functional wireless, and located in the heart of Ikoyi, Lagos. The gym and spa also help unwind after a tough day. Oh, and there's ample parking space too. Good place to be.
