Zambia welcomes new Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower


The new Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower recently opened its doors, making it the fourth Protea Hotel in the Zambian capital and the eighth in Zambia as a whole.

The nine-storey, 137-room hotel 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 also offers guests and visitors two meeting rooms and three boardrooms, to complement the conferencing facilities available at the neighbouring Protea Hotel Lusaka, which can accommodate 80 delegates.

Protea Hotels now falls within the Marriott International Hotels portfolio (see story here).

Marriott International Middle East and Africa President and Managing Director Alex Kyriakidis says Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower is one of more than 20 hotels that will be opening in sub-Saharan Africa in the next four years.
