Christmas in Monrovia at the Beautiful Farmington Hotel

The Farmington Hotel, located in Harbel, Liberia, is an incredibly beautiful property that I enjoy staying at for so many reasons, including proximity to the Roberts International Airport (RIA), especially if you are arriving on a late flight from Brussels or departing to Brussels to the USA. The hotel not only has incredible views of the Farmington River, named after one of Liberia’s many rivers throughout the country, it is also a 4+ Star Hotel that has 200 rooms, conference space for workshops, meetings, weddings, or barbeques around their three lovely swimming pools. As I am a swimmer, it is such a joy to have time to wind down after a long flight to swim laps or just look over the pool ledge into the Farmington River where you might just catch a small canoe with fishermen looking for the day’s catch.  Lovely views, three swimming pools, great Liberian or Continental cuisine, and warm and professional Liberian hotel staff.  You can’t go wrong when you book a room at the Farmington Hotel. A great entrance and welcome into Liberia.  Remember, a hotel is only as good as the leadership and kudos go out to Mr. Dominique Viard, General Manager, for his vision, community support and most of all for his hospitality.  You must experience the Farmington Hotel for yourself on your next visit to Liberia. I promise you it will be a memorable experience!  

The night before Christmas and all through the Farmington Hotel, the spirit of Christmas was alive.  A special Christmas Dinner was prepared in an intimate and inviting restaurant setting with soft music, a Special Mediterranean or Liberian dinner, and where Santa Clause offered children a Christmas gift.  

Imagine on Christmas Day, a wonderful barbeque including Lobster Salad, Lebanese Mezze & Delicates, Turkey, Christmas Log Cake and so much more was served around the pool and with live music! It doesn’t get much better than that!

Let me not forget that Santa Clause also showed up with presents around the pool for children and a grand Christmas Tree graced the lobby of the hotel for all to enjoy. Oh, what fun! 

NEWS FLASH: Val Thompson, iF Magazine CEO and Publisher and I are also pleased to announce that iF Magazine Monrovia will also launch in August 2023 with the new magazine placed in each hotel room at the Farmington Hotel.  You won’t want to miss out on receiving your inaugural edition.  More details to come!
