The rapid growth of Hospitality businesses in Nigeria is increasing at an alarming rate. It is sad to note that majority of these investors have little or no knowledge of the impact that their investment has on the environment. This is because most investors only carry out feasibility study on the profit forfeiting the sustainability of the business which depends on the environment. Today hospitality investors in Nigeria have refused to answer this question “are the activities of hospitality business environmental friendly? At this point it is pertinent to note that the sustainability of any hospitality business anchors largely on environmental sustainability. In other words, all hospitality business needs the environment to strive. Therefore, in view of the above, this paper critically diagnosed the activities of Soarak hotel and casino Lagos towards environmental sustainability. Its primary objective is to identify the impact of soarak hotel on its immediate surroundings. This research made extensive use of interview and questionnaire as instruments of data collection. In conclusion, the paper recommends sustainable measures to mitigate the activities of hospitality business on the environment.
