Kosam Global Hotel and Suites, a new upscale hospitality establishment, has opened its doors to guests and visitors seeking comfort and serenity when they visit Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State Capital.
Setting a new standard for luxury, the hospitality facility situated on the serene landscape of 42 Ufeh Street, Abak Road Federal Housing, Uyo, Kosam Global Hotel boasts of a prime location that is easily accessible from the Victor Attah International Airport, with a travel time of just 25 minutes.
The grand opening of the facility held on Wednesday 17th May, at the Kosam Global Hotel & Suites premises had in attendance Akparawa Nse Ubeh, security experts, financial experts, revered clergymen, and other notable personalities who offered their prayers and blessings for the success of the hotel.
Speaking at the opening, Mrs. Comfort Ekpenyong, the Chief Executive Officer hinted that Kosam’s opening is driven by her aspiration to provide an unparalleled level of comfort and convenience that surpasses conventional hospitality offerings and to challenge the notion that people who travel abroad never return home to make a meaningful impact.
She said ‘’Kosam Global Hotel and Suite is a bold statement, that we in the Diaspora have not forgotten home. Most of us have been accused of going abroad and abandoning home. Some have said that Diasporans give little back to the country. I don’t know the extent to which this is true but I know 100 percent the contributions I have made to my country and home.’’
Encouraging others in the Diaspora, Mrs. Ekpenyong stated that Kosam Global Hotel and Suite should inspire them to return and make a significant impact as the rapid progress of the State and potential for investments and remittances back home is huge.
Also, Mrs. Ekpenyong expressed Kosam’s commitment to supporting the state’s hospitality vision and collaborating with the incoming administration to contribute to the development of the state’s IGR while aligning with Pastor Umo Eno’s vision of ‘HAPPY HOUR.
Acknowledging the efforts of various individuals, Mrs. Ekpenyong expressed her appreciation to the Village Head of Iboko Offot, Etteidung Udeme Usanga, Engineer Nsikak Joseph, Joseph Ante (the Chief Accounting Officer), Mr. Fenyo Debo (the security consultant), Mr. Utenge Emah (the storekeeper), and Aniekan Udofia (the Chairman of the project team) for their contributions in transforming the facility into a haven of comfort.
Prof. Ntiabong Ekong, the Chairman of the occasion, in his address, applauded the initiative behind the establishment, noting that the hotel’s presence would not only contribute to business growth but also foster positive community relations.
On his part, the hotel’s manager, Mr. Anthony Johny, provided a glimpse of the facility, which includes a green bar, restaurant, lounge, tastefully furnished rooms, a conference hall with free Wi-Fi, round-the-clock power supply, complimentary breakfast, and 24-hour room service. The hotel aims to create a luxurious and elegant ambiance, enhancing the overall guest experience.
To highlight the hotel’s dedication to opulence and refinement, guests led by the CEO, Mrs Ekpeyong were invited shortly after the opening to tour the premises to experience its luxurious and elegant ambiance and sophisticated modern furnishings that effortlessly elevate the overall guest experience.
Meanwhile, beyond its role as a haven of luxury for discerning travelers, Kosam Global Hotel and Suites also presents remarkable potential in terms of employment opportunities, particularly with its 20-unit facility.
The establishment of the hotel holds tremendous promise for job seekers within the local community, as the hotel is expected to create a substantial number of employment openings across various departments, including housekeeping, front desk services, food and beverage, maintenance, and administration.
