I spent some time at one of Abuja's finest hotels, the Envoy hotel by Mantis, last year. Everything about this hotel screamed luxury from the decor, the chandeliers (pictured above) to even the elevators and the service by the security and reception. I never got around to posting about it because I lost most of my pictures but after being able to recover some and pulling a few from my camera roll, I thought to jist you all about my 24-hour staycation at the Envoy Hotel Abuja.

The Rooms
The Envoy Hotel has 59 luxury rooms. We checked into the standard room which offered a nice view of the swimming pool (not pictured) and settled in.

The Restaurant: Larai Restaurant 
 Larai Restaurant at the Envoy hotel is where we had lunch, dinner, and breakfast. For lunch, we started with an appetizer, a remixed shrimp cocktail and Beef fillet with mushrooms, all prepared by Chef Joseph. The shrimp cocktail was literally a burst of different flavors, I loved it! It was my favorite dish. Now the beef fillet was so tender and the incorporation of our very own local waterleaf into the dish was pretty cool. 

Tonye has a more detailed review here of the restaurant, check it out. On the next day of our stay, we were served a beautiful breakfast buffet spread. Breakfast is one of my favorite parts of staying at a hotel but in my haste out as I was rushing to work, I couldn't take a proper picture of everything or even be my regular foodie self. The breakfast spread had everything from foreign to our very own Nigerian breakfast dishes. 

Vandos Bar
There was just something about the Vandos Bar at the Envoy hotel where we had cocktails after dinner. 

Check Out
I definitely slept like a baby (the beds were so comfy) and after breakfast the next day we checked out. It was truly a wonderful 24 hours living the baby girl life.
