The Providence by Mantis is a boutique hotel located at Oba Akinjobi Way, Ikeja GRA. It is scheduled to open in June 2019. The project was signed as a management agreement in 2016 and the original opening date has been pushed forward since late 2017, however it is expected that the property is now ready to begin operations.
The hotel will consist of 79 rooms, three of which are penthouse suites, as well as an auditorium, boardroom, restaurant, bar and lounge, swimming pool, gym, and spa.
The hotel is designed for business travelers looking to stay in the Ikeja area as it enjoys proximity to the local and international airports and other businesses located in Ikeja and the Lagos mainland. For leisure travelers, it offers proximity to the Ikeja City Mall, the Ikeja Golf Club, Lagos Country Club, and Kalakuta Museum.
The Providence by Mantis joins a growing portfolio of Mantis properties in Nigeria including L’eola Hotel by Mantis, Maryland and The Envoy by Mantis, Abuja.
Another Mantis project in the pipeline for Lagos is the 47-room Art Hotel, which was signed in 2015.
