Nestled in Museyo next to Eleko, just one hour by road from Lekki Phase One, Jara Beach Resort is the first of its kind, award-winning, all-inclusive, family-run, oceanfront getaway in Lagos. Three full meals (and snacks!) await our overnight guests; a fusion of international favourites and locally sourced ingredients – from the land and the sea. Lunchtime is where your indulgent visit begins! Lunch and Dinner menus alternate between a la carte and a BBQ feast for overnight guests, providing optimum variety.
In any one of the 12 beautifully-finished en-suite bedrooms; five standard queen bed, five family with queen (room #6) or king bed (rooms #7-9 + 12) with a 2 x 4foot mattress bunk bed, and two immersive oceanfront villas (ideal for those in search of the extra-extra special), comfort is guaranteed - with all amenities provided to ensure you sleep peacefully, waking only to the sound of the waves from the Atlantic Ocean. A coffee delivered to your room, enjoyed on your own ocean-facing balcony, the perfect way to start your day.
Bathe in the swimming pool surrounded by palm trees, or relax in a cabana on the sand of JARA’s own beachfront. There’s so much to do. Feeling active? The table tennis table, pool table and sand games are all yours. With plenty of books, board games and latest magazines, it’s also the perfect location for those wanting to do very little too!
A warmth welcome awaits you.

Jara has no grid power. We use a mix of generators, solar and turbine power. Our schedule ensures a warm shower and cool room as you prepare for dinner, ahead of a comfortable night’s sleep. All lights and plugs for small devices will run around the clock. All rooms have rechargeable fans. We'd love to offer ACs for longer, but the current diesel situation simply is not viable. Jara is very much designed for those who enjoy the outdoors and ocean breeze.
Air-Conditioners and Water Heaters will operate between the following times: 5pm – 7pm and 9pm – 10am.
The family cabins and Villas receive warm water via solar water tank, around the clock.
We have armed guards patrolling around the clock - 24 hours a day. You may not always see them, but they are very much on site.
The resort is also well connected and supportive of the local community, who in turn support our special beach business.
It's true! All of your food and drink (including popular alcoholic beverages) are included within your booking fee. THIS MEANS YOU WON'T EVER SEE LAST NIGHT'S DINNER OFFERED FOR BREAKFAST, BUT IT ALSO MEANS WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR FEEDING YOU ONLY WHILE YOU REMAIN WITH US.
All pricing exclude 5% consumption tax and 7.5% VAT
WiFi is provided for multiple devices, with no download limit (fair usage). We have a one-touch connect gadget on our reception counter or you'll find the GUEST password at the snack station by reception.
We very much welcome children of all ages and do our best to create the most welcoming environment. However, we remain an ocean resort in west Africa and certain parental preparation is still required (whether food, or insect related for example).
We provide towels and robes for your convenience. These are the property of Jara Beach Resort and must not be removed.
Our rates are stated on our booking page. Our pricing varies seasonally and from weekend to weekdays. Pricing is based on two adults sharing, on an all-inclusive basis. All pricing exclude 5% consumption tax and 7.5% VAT
We are open for DAY PASS guests daily - advance booking required. Midweek and weekend rates available. Different prices adults with and without alcohol, children and nannies.

There will be a N100,000 fee for thorough cleaning services charged to guest who chooses to smoke in a bedroom or indoor area, to restore it back to its original condition. The use of shisha, marijuana and other illegal drugs is strictly prohibited.
We don't have too many mozzi's as we're very close to the ocean (a good breeze), however we:
have Mozzi paint on all interiors
provide complimentary all natural Jara oil which contains lemon and lemongrass known to be natural mosquito repellents
spray rooms if required during dinner

Jara Beach Resort is a perfect destination for weddings and business retreats.
We welcome any special requests and will endeavour to fulfil any special needs. The more preparation time you can provide the better.
Our small and remote business has proven to be consistent and successful largely due to taking pre-booked guests only. This enables us to be organised and well prepared ahead welcoming incoming guests. Should you decide to arrive at Jara spontaneously to enjoy a Day Pass experience, a 25% premium to your ticket will apply
Please kindly be reminded that there are other guests at Jara during your visit, including families with children who would like to enjoy the swimming pool and all facilities. Jara is a family-run resort is designed to consider all guests. As a result we do have firm expectations around our guest’s respectful conduct. We have enjoyed some notable popularity and although in a remote location, we do receive visits from State agencies and law enforcement - often unannounced. We thank you for your support and understanding.
Should you wish to tour/inspect Jara ahead of your visit (perhaps you're planning a retreat or party), you may do so for up to 30 minutes, for N10,000 - covers two people and a welcome soft drink. Priced at N5,000 per person thereafter. Must be booked / arranged in advance - please email ahead.
The N10,000 paid is then removed from the total of any booking secured within one month of the inspection.
