Protea to open new hotel in Zambia


Protea Hotels will launch its fourth property in the Zambian capital of Lusaka in April.

The nine-storey, 137-room Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower is situated in the Arcades Shopping and Entertainment lifestyle hub opposite the Mulungushi Conference Centre.

Facilities include four suites, 30 twin deluxe rooms, 103 king deluxe rooms, a swimming pool and a ninth floor restaurant and bar.

The hotel will offer two meeting rooms and three boardrooms in addition to the conferencing facilities already available at the neighbouring Protea Hotel Lusaka, which can accommodate 80 delegates.

The decision to open a hotel in such close proximity to the Protea Hotel Lusaka was driven by demand for both accommodation and conferencing facilities, says Danny Bryer, Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue for the Protea Hospitality Group.

The development of Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower is one of several builds across Africa under the Protea Hotels and African Pride Hotels banners, including hotels in Rwanda and Ghana.

The total value of the new builds throughout Africa is approximately $100 million.
