Southern Sun Ridgeway completes refurb


Southern Sun Ridgeway Lusaka, in Zambia, has completed a long-awaited refurbishment, to the value of over $7 million.

The newly-unveiled rooms and public areas bring a fresh look to one of Zambia’s oldest hotels, which first opened in 1953.

Inspiration for the refurbished rooms focused on the rich copper and gemstone resources of Zambia, with the colours of emeralds, amethyst, aquamarine, tourmaline, garnet and rose quartz informing the hotel’s new colour palette.

The country’s heritage is further reflected through the distinct pattern carpets, and the natural wonders of Zambia are highlighted through the wall art, featuring magnificent indigenous trees.

Every room is equipped with blackout curtains and walk-in showers.

Additional amenities include complimentary wi-fi, flat-screen TVs with DStv and 24-hour room service.

The Southern Sun Ridgeway Lusaka has also completed upgrades to its reception area, public toilets, and business centre.
