proteaThe Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower in Zambia has opened, making it the fourth Protea hotel in the capital and the eighth in Zambia.

The nine-storey, 137-room hotel is situated in the Arcades Shopping and Entertainment lifestyle hub, opposite the Mulungushi Conference Centre.

The hotel comprises four suites, 30 twin deluxe rooms, 103 king deluxe rooms, a swimming pool, restaurant and bar with views of the city.

There are two meeting rooms and three boardrooms that complement the conferencing facilities available at the neighbouring Protea property, which can accommodate 80 delegates.

“We have no doubt that Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower will be successful. 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 Alex Kyriakidis, President and MD of Marriott International Middle East and Africa

Kyriakidis further says that the Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower is one of more than 20 hotels that the group will open in sub-Saharan Africa in the next four years.
