Since he ascended the throne, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusiâ€™s dream, among others, is to turn the ancient city of Ile- Ife into a place that will attract tourists all over the world. Interestingly, the dream is becoming a reality.
Spy Glass gathered that the well-travelled monarch has completed a billion-naira grand resort in the town that can compete with others across the world.
A source revealed that the resort named Ife Grand Resorts and Leisure is built on a 252- hectare of land with a 300-room capacity.
The resort, which boasts breathtaking scenery, will be officially launched in March.
â€œThereâ€™s nothing like this in the whole of West Africa, not even in Lagos. It is the most lit up place in the whole of sub-Sahara Africa. It is a choice centre for weddings, seminars and conferencesâ€, a source added.
We further gathered that the resort also has a mini stadium with sport facilities, childrenâ€™s theme park, jungle experience park, a floating platform, natural habitat zone for animals, jungle rope climbing, 18-hole golf course, African village and tree houses and 5,000- seater conference hall among others
