Ilashe beach is a scenic 25- 30 minute boat ride from the city. The ride is best enjoyed from Victoria Island Maroko or Lekki jetties where you speed through the heart of the city with its gleaming towers and luxury waterfront properties into the shanty towns and fishing villages opposite the magnificent Apapa ports. Leaving urban living behind, you enter into the idyllic mangrove fringed lagoon of the Owo river basin watershed and the coconut plantations of Ilashe.
Nestled on an acre of beach front is PoPilashe. It consists of a club house with a pool and tennis court amongst other facilities such as a beach volley ball court, table tennis, beach soccer posts etc. It consists of 11 rooms styled as Chalets, Sheds and Cabins. The rooms are bright, airy and clean with private balconies that overlook great views of the beach.
We are a low carbon institution operating mostly on solar power with backup generators for rainy days. The rooms are designed to reflect this with picture doors and windows to optimize ventilation from the ocean breeze aiding a restful refreshing sleep – a perfect foil to our air-conditioned weakened respiratory systems.
The lovingly designed bijou pods are minimal and perfect to crash in for the short breaks and staycations beloved by our clientele. They provide privacy without excluding you from the beautiful world that surrounds you. At PoP the beach is the draw. It is big, wild and beautiful, as nature designed. We encourage you to immerse yourself in it with our no boundaries philosophy allowing your imagination to run as free as the glorious sea breeze. Our emphasis is on communion through our public spaces: the lounge, terrace and pool deck. The pool deck is is where the action is and where you will spend most of your time with us enjoying the great outdoors.
