Economy Lusaka Protea Hotel to double size

protea_hotel

The 100 room Lusaka Protea Hotel is constructing a new wing that will see it grow to 237 rooms.

The expansion is to service the growing demand for business travel as the Zambian economy continues to grow.

The hotel is located within the Arcades Shopping and entertainment lifestyle hub opposite the Mulungushi International Conference Centre.

Protea Hospitality Group Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue Danny Bryer said Zambia like many economies in Africa is showing phenomenal growth and as business expands so does the need for accommodation with the hotel name that is known and trusted across Africa.

Mr Bryer said Lusaka Protea Hotel’s prime position in the capital as well as its superior accommodation and service offering mean the demand is there to invest tens of millions of dollars in the large new wing.

The new wing will include a restaurant, a bar, a pool, free Wi-Fi, satellite television and in room work stations.

The hotel also offers conferencing facilities of up to 80 people.

The new wing is expected to be open in February 2014.

    • Mushota, you have no idea how much the Scottish sacrificed to bring it to what it is today. If you were normal you could not brag about everything about that country. work hard and make Zambia, your own get to that level. You little brat.

    • WE KNOW THAT THIS IS A BUSINESS DECISION, BUT PLEASE MAKE OUR COUNTRY BEAUTIFUL !!!!

      Protea Arcades is a typical case of selfish investment where the owner only worries about pleasing their client with INTERIOR easthetic beauty and ZERO AESTHETIC APPEAL ON THE OUTSIDE. This does not help beautify our city.We want to see modernity in every piece of work – thanks to the owners of the new buildings in the Lusaka show grounds and at the Addis Ababa round-about!!!!

  1. I SPENT TWO NIGHTS AT THIS HOTEL (24 &25 JUNE THIS YEAR) AT A COST OF US$201 PER NIGHT, WHILE IN SOUTH AFRICA ONE WOULD PAY BETWEEN US$68 TO US$112 PER NIGHT AT ANY PROTEA HOTEL.

  2. PM. I agree with you. Our Zambian hotels are too expensive for nothing. the amount charged by lodges can be for hotels indeveloped countries.

    • Only “stars” you will see in Zambian hotels are the ones “flaying” around your head when you pay your bill.

  3. Zambia has no idea what hotel prices must be they think it is $100 plus when even in the USA it is $35 plus! GRZ must control these robbers.

  4. the outside of that chi ma pan brick arcades protea is pathetic. no windows. that chi hotel for the Chinese

  5. Cloud 9 The Hotels in Zambia are expensive cause we have a few Nice Hotels hence no competition… But Protea hotel lsk is nice **** 4stars
