Boutique hotels are beloved among travellers, for reasons including intimacy, peculiarity, design, location, service, and of course culture. All of these characteristics, in addition to a discernible level of sophistication, create the venues sought out by individuals who wish to enjoy the finer and more modern things in life. Nigeria has ten of such top boutique hotels to offer.

Along with the facilities of Bogobiri’s one-of-a-kind 16-room establishment, guests are provided the luxury of live music, great food, dance classes, and a library.
Serene is probably another name for Villa Angelia. The hotel skillfully combines this quality with high-tech facilities, delightful and diverse cuisines, ideal comfort, impressive service, as well as an affinity for the needs and expectations of its guests. And this includes getting good value for money spent.

The Blowfish Hotel is one of the cosiest hotels you can stay in. Its delightful attention to decorative detail is the first thing you notice when you walk through its doors. After this, the warm customer service, groovy poolside, and rooms with extra-comfy linens make you feel like you’re at an upgraded version of your dream home.
Nordic Hotel is the sister hotel of The Nordic Villa. And, as expected, the #NordicFeeling here is just as delightfully pleasing for guests. Those who’ve had any harsh encounters with the sun don’t just have the air conditioned lobby and exquisite rooms to look forward to upon arrival, as the Nordic Hotel staff awaits guests at the doors with a cold towel and a cold glass of juice to cool them off. If you have it in you, a guided tour of the number one hotel in Abuja follows. Every month, the hotel hosts Art Circle, which showcases the best in visual art for its guests.

La Cour may be tucked away in one of the streets of ‘old Ikoyi’, almost hidden, but it is one of the most accommodating boutique hotels you can afford to stay in. Whether the purpose is pleasure or business, all guests are equal in the quick getaway that is La Cour, with its green and inviting surroundings, beautiful décor, spacious rooms, and top facilities.
