The Whispering Palms at Iworo, Badagry, Lagos State, on Sunday recorded a large turnout of fun seekers who trooped out to celebrate the New Year.
Nigerians from Lagos and some other states of the federation came to the resort to have a good time
Mr Ayobami Badejo who came to the resort with his family, said he took advantage of the holiday to spend time with his family there.
“I have heard so much about this place; so, I decided to use this public holiday to come here to have fun with my family and I must confess, I am having a great time.
“The environment is so good and there are so many activities to do here; like you can see, my kids are using the swing and after that, we would go to the pool.
“It is really fun here and I would definitely come back here when I am chanced,” Badejo said.
Mr Ademola Akano, who came with his girlfriend, could not hide his excitement.
“This place is so lovely, I didn’t even know that there is a mini zoo here and the animals are so friendly and clean.
“The view of the seaside is a joy to behold, the environment is so friendly. This place is so wonderful.
“I am going to tell my friends about this place so that they too can enjoy what I have enjoyed,” Akano said.
Mr Olumide Olaomoju came from Ilorin said he didn’t regret his trip.
“I am going to be here for the rest of the week and I am glad I chose this place for my vacation.
“Everything I want and need is here and the environment is fantastic,” Olaomoju said.
Mr Deji Femi-Pearse, the Owner of the resort, attributed the large turnout to the constant rebranding of the resort.
“Every time, we keep on bringing in new things to keep on attracting people here because we don’t want them to keep seeing the same thing over and over again.
“We hope that in a few months, we would be able to bring some dolphins and we are already creating an environment for them.
He appealed to the Government to improve the power supply in the area.
“We spend millions on running our generators because we have no power supply here and this is not good for business,” Femi-Pearse said.
