Zambia’s Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower To Open In April
ZAMBIA’S PROTEA HOTEL LUSAKA TOWER TO OPEN IN APRIL
January 2013: Protea Hotels launches its fourth chic property in the Zambian capital Lusaka in
April 2014 when the doors of the new Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower open.
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 in the elegant new property include four suites, 30 twin deluxe rooms, 103 king
deluxe rooms, a swimming pool and a ninth floor restaurant and bar with expansive views
over the surrounding city.
The hotel will also offer GUESTS and visitors two meeting rooms and three boardrooms rooms
that will complement the conferencing facilities already available at the neighbouring
Protea Hotel Lusaka, which can accommodate 80 delegates.
The decision to create 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.
“Lusaka is a vibrant capital from which much of the country’s economic growth prediction of
more than 6% for 2014 will stem. It has become one of Africa’s top business centres and the
investment in hospitality infrastructure reflects that,” says Bryer.
“Protea Hotels certainly expects to expand its Lusaka and Zambian footprint significantly in
the next 5 years.”
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 two new countries –
Rwanda and Ghana.
The total value of the new builds throughout Africa that will carry the standards of Africa’s
largest hotel group is approximately US$100 million.
