Owerri is the capital of Imo State and has been its cosmopolitan town since it was created in 1976, and now has 27 administrative structures or local government areas. It is also strategically situated that it could be reached from Port Harcourt, Enugu, Onitsha within two hours’ drive and from Aba, Umuahia within an hour. And for those using Imo International Cargo Airport it is about 40 minutes’ drive.
Owerri is famous, though bereft of industries, and what makes it tick is the hotel and hospitality sector with leisure centresdotted in every nook and cranny of the city.
Moreover, Owerri is relatively calm and tranquil when compared with other neighbouringcities, the people are naturally hospitable and loving, and as a result, people from all walks of life come into the city on daily basis to feel the warmth of the town, and its beautiful hotels, including the famous Full Moon Hotels, which recently opened its Spa Zone to the public.
According to EstherIwuanyanwu, the deputy general manager, Full Moon Hotels stands out as among its peers as a one-stop shop for hospitality.
The new Spa, she explained to Business A.M., is a business that is capable of providing a variety of services with a view to improving the health, beauty and relaxation through personal care treatments, such as massages and facials.
