A DAY AT LAKOWE LAKES GOLF & COUNTRY ESTATE

Lakowe Lakes Golf & Country Estate is an exclusive 308 hectare residential golf estate owned and developed by Mixta Africa, so imagine our excitement when we were invited to a media brunch at the estate.

I had heard about Lakowe a lot of times and a former boss of mine went there religiously to play golf so I was looking forward to finally seeing what the fuss was about.

Due to the distance, we were told that transportation would be made available from a take-off point that was communicated to us.


During our trip there, we were informed that the Estate is a secure and serene gated community with an 18-hole world class golf course, guest cottages, corporate lodges, spa facilities & hotel and a clubhouse. They are confident that the distinctive lifestyle they offer in the serene and luxurious environment is unmatched by any other development in West Africa.

After hearing that, we put on our rating hats so we could aptly review what we thought of the property while they showed us round.

Location

Rating: Hole-in-one

Located just after Ajah on the Lekki-Epe Axis, Lagos awaits the beautiful Lakowe Lakes Golf & Country Estate located just 20 minutes from Lekki 4th roundabout. If you think of Ikeja, Lagos island,Victoria island and Ikoyi as the downtown of the mega city that is Lagos. Then Lakowe Lakes Golf & Country Estate is located in the suburbs, away from the hustle and grind of the city. This sprawling golf estate is known for its exclusivity and its charm is undeniable.

Style & character

Set your mind on enjoying all the goodness that nature has to offer, lots of greenery, birds chirping and serenity.  This is not your typical Lagos residential experience. Of the 308 acres of land, only 92 hectares is going to be built up. This estate is surrounded by a natural ecosystem with 13 man-made lakes spread across the property giving it a dramatic effect. If you didn’t know any better, you would think you are in an exotic location far away from Lagos. This is the perfect location for family or corporate retreats. Even a staycation at their spa resort is worth the visit. It offers an extraordinary spa and the best part is dining while overlooking the lake.

The stylish but informal restaurant near the lake turns locally caught fishes into tasty dishes. Staples such as pasta and pizzas are also available and a fine selection of breakfast options if that’s your favorite meal. There’s also a fine dining restaurant which caters to all culinary palates.
