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.
