LAGOS, Nigeria, July 20, 2016 (APO) – Eko Atlantic City (EkoAtlantic.com), a unique, innovative development, in a vibrant environment with 21st Century facilities on the coast of Lagos has reached advanced stages in the first 5 million square metres of the project. The city not only boasts of independent power and water supply, seamless communications network but also an extensive citywide road network. This will be the first of its kind in Lagos and Nigeria.

The city, which is divided into 8 districts, is planned for mixed-use with commercial, residential, entertainment and leisure activities to make the city a 24/7 lively environment. City amenities and services will include an international school, hospital, and a high-quality shopping mall, the largest in sub-Saharan Africa.

The city’s road design and construction have been built according to world’s best practices with beautifully paved sidewalks, tree-lined and streetlights completed with a stunning ocean view. One of the considerations when developing the Eko Atlantic city was to guarantee free flowing traffic. This has now been achieved with the major road network recently completed. The extensive road networks now clearly defined with an area in excess of 200,000 square metres. Most significantly Eko Boulevard, an 8 lane Boulevard, 1500M long ( similar to the 5th Avenue in New York) the focal point of the Business District is fully completed from Ahmadu Bello Way in Victoria Island to the Ocean Front, where an exquisite waterfront entertainment is being planned.

“We are extremely proud to have achieved another major milestone in the development of Eko Atlantic City. This futuristic city is not just for residential and commercial activities but a tourist attraction. We strongly believe the new boulevard will enhance business activities and be the ideal location for company headquarters, luxury and business hotels and also residential elements as well as attracting tourists from all over Africa,” says Ronald Chagoury Jr.

In addition, the city infrastructure network makes it the most technically advanced city inNigeria. It comes with a fully integrated autonomous and reliable infrastructure networks with all its underground service pipes installed under the extensive paved sidewalks( such as the storm-water drains, sewer drains, water supply piping, power cables and IT network ).

In 2006 South Energyx Nigeria Limited, a subsidiary of The Chagoury Group was awarded the concession to reclaim land, develop infrastructure and act as the exclusive authority over the development of Eko Atlantic city, next to Victoria Island in Lagos. Furthermore, South Energyx Nigeria Limited was specifically created to oversee the planning and development of Eko Atlantic, the new city of Lagos.

JADE MOUNTAIN AND ANSE CHASTANET NAMED TO TOP RESORTS LIST

JADE MOUNTAIN AND ANSE CHASTANET NAMED TO TOP RESORTS LISTSOUFRIERE, St. Lucia, July 15, 2016 – Two of Soufrière, St. Lucia’s top resorts have been included among the Top 25 Caribbean resorts by one of the world’s leading travel magazines.

Travel + Leisure’s (T+L) World’s Best Awards reader survey results, which reveal the hotels that deliver the most extraordinary experiences, list Jade Mountain in third position in the Caribbean while its eco-chic sister property, Anse Chastanet, came in at number 13 in the rankings.

Karolin Troubetzkoy, Executive Director of Marketing and Operations at both properties, which lie next to each other overlooking the iconic twin peaks of the Pitons, was delighted the neighboring resorts were included in the prestigious ranking.

“We are very happy that Jade Mountain has retained its position as the best resort in St. Lucia, as well as being ranked third among the Top 25 Caribbean Resorts,” said Troubetzkoy.

Equally impressive, Jade Mountain is included on the list of The 100 Best Hotels in the World, coming in at number 90 and holding company with some of the world’s most exclusive properties.

For Troubetzkoy, the recognition is a particularly gratifying achievement as the judging becomes more competitive each year. “On an experiential level, everyone is reaching above and beyond to impress and serve guests,” said Troubetzkoy, who congratulated Kamalame Cay in The Bahamas and Curtain Bluff in Antigua for capturing the top two Caribbean positions, respectively.

The increasing competition, according to Troubetzkoy, who is also president of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association, is something to which the region’s hospitality industry must pay attention: “We need to see many more Caribbean properties included on these lists of the world’s most outstanding hotels and resorts,” she added.

For T+L’s annual poll, the magazine asked respondents to vote for the hotels, destinations and other travel companies that define the very best in travel.

The survey results represent one of the most widely recognized and respected rankings in the travel and tourism industry worldwide.

Diamond Resorts International(R) Timeshare — Encourages To Experience Major U.S. Cities

Diamond Resorts International(R) Timeshare -- Encourages To Experience Major U.S. CitiesLAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – July 02, 2016) – Diamond Resorts International® Timeshare network with vacation ownership properties in over 35 countries, is a firm advocate of foreign travel and the perspective-expanding, exciting aspects of going abroad. But it also believes in experiencing the best locations right at home. With so many great cities in the U.S. to explore, they have offered some suggestions.

New York City is sometimes used as the standard by which other cities are judged. Its energy and towering skyscrapers are firmly in the American imagination like no other city. Even if one has never visited, the essence of New York has been represented in films and TV. Superman’s Metropolis and Batman’s Gotham are clearly based on New York City. Gotham, of course, is also a real-life nickname for the city, but many people are unaware that it was coined in 1807 by author Washington Irving, famous for his stories “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” and “Rip Van Winkle.” Irving is also responsible for the word “Knickerbocker,” which is probably most widely known for the basketball team, “New York Knickerbockers” commonly shortened to simply the “Knicks.” The sights of New York are endless and perhaps among the most famous in the world, with the most popular and iconic being Central Park, the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. Visitors can be absorbed into Chinatown with its vibrant street scene and mysterious alleyways, which is adjacent to Little Italy, another area rich in history and teeming with life. For the art and culture lovers, New York City is home to some of the most renowned museums in the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim. Diamond Resorts International® Timeshare experts recommend experiencing the city by simply wandering and becoming immersed in its flow and constant vibrant activity because you never know what you might find around the corner.

Los Angeles is the United States’ second largest city by the population at 3.4 million as compared to New York’s 8 million. It was founded in 1781 by the Spanish as El Pueblo de La Reina de Los Angeles, meaning “The City of the Queen of the Angels.” No longer a dusty agricultural town, the city sprang to life at the start of the 20th Century to become the glamour capital of the world thanks to its long-established movie industry, which was pioneered by former New York theater owners who moved west to take advantage of the endless bright sunshine which early film stock required for proper exposure. Its many beaches are legendary, each with its own particular character, from the quirky art scene of Venice, the multi-million dollar mansions of Malibu and the urban excitement of the Santa Monica pier. Diamond Resorts International® Timeshare professionals recommend a studio tour and a stroll along Hollywood Boulevard with the renowned Walk of Fame, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and dozens of other immortal icons from popular culture.

Startup Markets Hotels with Unique Animated Review Videos

Startup HolidayHotelReviews.biz launches tourism reputation marketing, building brand integrity, reach & bookings with innovative video distribution.

Startup Markets Hotels with Unique Animated Review VideosHastings, Christ Church, (Newswire.net – April 14, 2016) – A new reputation marketing platform has been launched by Startup HolidayHotelReviews for hotels and tourism operators. The new innovative service does several things and perhaps the most intriguing in how it animates reviews with professional video that show and tell what guest see, say and experience. The fully automated review gathering, monitoring, presentation, syndication and Reputation Marketing further helps hotels and tourism companies achieve better customer reviews and increases online visibility, engagement and bookings. See it at http://holidayhotelreviews.biz/contact

According to the 2015 Local Consumer Review Survey, 97 percent of consumers aged 18 to 34 read online reviews to assess a product or service, meaning reviews are just as trusted as word of mouth referrals. Reputation marketing system operator Holiday Hotel Reviews recognized the opportunity to develop a service assisting hotels in building themselves a positive name online.

Holiday Hotel Reviews has created proprietary tools and strategies tailored for hotel and tourism marketing, in order to help its subscribers build five star reviews and syndicate them to the leading digital media. Hotel and tourism clients receive customized five star review videos and graphic productions of their holiday property. The visual and content is integrated into their own website and social media, sharing the content to top digital networks with full-time results monitoring.

The HolidayHotelReviews platform also consolidates five star reviews from other systems such as TripAdvisor and Booking.com to one location, allowing hotels to feed the optimized content to their own online channels such as website and social media. This makes it easier for website visitors to find all five star reviews in one place and it keeps them on the hotel and tourism website. Guests are also able to submit reviews to other platforms without leaving the customer’s website or Facebook page.

Kathy-Lynn Ward, COO of HolidayHotel.Reviews says that having the reviews on the hotel website is a very significant advantage on its own. “It keeps travelers engaged and on the hotel website. Too often a visit to TripAdvisor may be the last the hotel sees of the potential guest as many end up in a booking funnel outside of hotel control”

“With figures showing hundreds of thousands of hotels and holiday accommodation available throughout the world, offering millions of guest rooms, the need to stand out and attract guests is highly competitive. Also, travellers almost always book accommodation online, presenting a further challenge for hotel and tourism operators to woo potential customers, so it’s vital that they establish a solid, online reputation through the trusted review system by fellow travellers”, says Ian R. Clayton CEO of Holiday Hotel Reviews.

Additional services offered by HolidayHotelReviews.biz and its network of sites, include broadcast media content-sharing via press release subscriptions, and subscriptions to holiday-planning sites, where buyers’ behaviour and interests based on their search patterns matches them to ideal accommodation offers.This is a major departure from traditional booking engines and hotel search, which focuses on budget, location and amenities. While all do much the same, HHR adds a new and innovative dimension: Expert knowledge and behaviour responsive intelligence profiles travelers and holiday options. A vast database of personality trates are matched to triggers and choices in an intellegent system that learns with each click.
