Review of Staying at Ilaji Resorts: 10 Interesting facts

We arrived Ibadan on a beautiful Saturday morning, we took the Lagos- Ibadan train.

Ibadan Train Station
Train ride to Ibadan
Train station Ibadan

It was my second time using the train in Nigeria, the first time was to Abeokuta in July 2021. I had a good experience with the train. I really enjoyed the ride. We purchased the business class ticket going to Ibadan for N4,000 and the economy ticket coming from Ibadan back to Lagos for N2,600 to experience both. The differences are the same differences stated in the Abeokuta blog post.

Ibadan train ticket
Ibadan train ticket

Ilaji Hotels and Resorts Center is located at, Oloyo Village, Off Ona-Ara Local Government Secretariat, Akanran, Local, Government Area, 112106, Ibadan.

It was an almost 2 hours drive from the train station to Ilaji resorts. We learnt that its usually not supposed to be more than 40 minutes to an hour but due to some constructions ongoing on the normal route, an alternative route has to be passed to get to Ilaji resorts plus some small traffic here and there.

Below are the  rates at Ilaji resorts as at August 2022:

Ilaji Resorts, Ibadan

We stayed in the silver room. You can check out videos of the silver room here and pictures and reservation contacts, other information here .

The rooms are furnished with: bed(s), air conditioner, television, working area, chairs, water heater, shower, toilet, zinc etc.

Ilaji resort houses lodging facilities, a mini zoo, restaurant and bars, swimming pools, local monuments, children arena, a stadium, worship centers, event hall, an outdoor art gallery,sitting area, worship centers  etc.

A major recommendation I have that needs improvement is when it comes to food they have different restaurants, outdoor grilling spot, a mini mart etc. however, in most of these restaurants, the menu options were very limited and they also did not look nice. In one of the cafeteria’s, we had to eat cold white amala. It costs N1,500 for the amala,ewedu, 1 meat, 1 fish and a bottle of water.In the restaurant, inside the hotel; a plate of jollof rice and goat meat for N3,800 was not worth it, the meat given was mostly bone and when I complained nothing was done to change it.

I have written about Ibadan before,  click here to read.

I will be writing two more blog posts in this series:

I initially asked for goat meat and was given chicken, when I complained, it was changed.

The lounge was also a good chilling spot and I had a bottle of chilled malt here.

Flight Review: Flying with Green Africa from Lagos to Abuja and back to Lagos

On my recent trip to Abuja, I flew with Green Africa to and fro. I took a morning flight from Lagos to Abuja and an evening flight from Abuja back to Lagos five days after.

It was a good good trip. I had looked forward to it and I really enjoyed my time in the Nations capital AKA FCT AKA The Buj.

Interesting Places to visit in Abuja; 2022 edition. click here to read.

I arrived the airport early enough to be able to catch my flight. I had checked in online and gotten my boarding pass and seat number so I only needed to check in luggage at the airport which I did and got a tag for it; boarding passes were confirmed at different points and other checks were done; hand luggage, shoes etc was also scanned through the detector.

Green Africa’s shuttle buses drove us after the checks to close to where the aircraft was both going to Abuja and coming back from Abuja.

There was enough leg room to stretch.

I boarded and listened to the safety instructions,read the safety instructions pamphlet and listened to soft music that was played in the aircraft.

Soon, it was time for taxiing, take off afterwards and it was a smooth flight to and fro. I really enjoyed the flight especially the views I got to see, what a wonder! This beautiful earth God has created, I sat by the window which enabled me enjoy great views better.

I made use of the lavatory while going from Lagos to Abuja and it was clean.

We were served a bottle of Lasena water both going to Abuja and coming back to Lagos.

The check in procedure for coming back to Lagos was similar to that of going to Abuja, the major difference was that we were given printed boarding passes and there are larger waiting areas in Abuja than in Lagos.

A quest to finding bubble tea in Lagos:

The now famous drink Bubble Tea (boba) is said to be of Taiwanese origin. It is a drink that was invented in the city of Taichung in the 1980s.

The popularity of this drink quickly spread across Japan and Hong Kong in the ‘90s.

Today, the popularity of bubble tea has spread far and wide and it is now consumed by various kinds of people across the globe.

This amazing drink has quietly crawled into the shores of Nigeria. Want to know where to try bubble tea in Lagos State, Nigeria? Keep reading.

  1. Bubbletii(AAron’s Lekki Mall, Lekki Phase I; Landmark Retail Boulevard, Plot 2 & 3, Water Corporation Dr, Victoria Island, Lagos.)

Bubbletii has two branches serving Lagosians bubble tea. One in Lekki and another in Victoria Island.

They offer a wide array of bubble tea variants such as berry blast, mango tango, Oreo cookie twist and many others.


My absolute favourite is the Oreo Cookie Twist. The first time I tasted it all the bones in my body sang for joy. Even though I have tried some of the other variants and bubble tea at other places, nothing has beat this yet. I have gone back an unhealthy number of times for more.

At this point I think I will eat anything that has Oreo’s in it. I don’t think the world is ready to hear the foods I think Oreo’s will add a lot to.

  1. TeaStoria(16b Adewunmi Adebimpe Drive, Lekki Phase I)

TeaStoria has the cutest space ever! The staffs here were very helpful and were very aware of the menu and gave the right recommendations.

I decided on the peach bubble tea and made a silent prayer in my heart that I had not just set my money on fire. The peach bubble tea tasted DIVINE. This was very surprising. I did not expect the peach to be THAT good.

The quantity of the tapioca pearls in this bubble tea was just right. The texture was also very amazing. It didn’t feel like a struggle to take them.

I am definitely looking forward to going back here.



  1. Bubble Tea Spot(16 Akin Adesola St, Victoria Island, Lagos)

Bubble tea Spot is in the same space as Cafeteria NG.

I had been looking forward to having the bubble tea from here for such a long time. I had the Taro bubble tea and the strawberry vanilla and my sweetness level was sweet. Well, I did not really enjoy it. The strawberry vanilla was much better but still just average.

I want to hope that I went on a bad day. However, I don’t think I am very willing to give it another try.

  1. Galaxy Bubble Tea(45c SoboArobiodu St, Ikeja GRA.)

Finally, because people on the mainland deserve good things, Galaxy Bubble Tea is located in GRA Ikeja. Galaxy Bubble tea is located in the same compound as Hua Han Korean restaurant and just like the restaurant, the space is really pretty. I should also add that this was the most expensive place I visited on this list.

Here, I tried the galaxy milk tea with coco. The bubble tea was alright. Nothing spectacular. It wasn’t terrible but it did not give me any form of WOW effect. But I am definitely open to trying other kinds of bubble tea here.

Galaxy tea

galaxy tea

They did not have a POS at the time of my visit and they failed to mention until after the drink was ready.

The popularity that bubble tea has gotten makes me wonder if a day will come in the near future when Nigerian drinks like zobo, kunu, and palm wine and so on will spread across all borders and continents across the world.
