Zambia's Protea Hotel Lusaka More Than Doubles Capacity to Service Demand

July 2013: The popular 100-room Protea Hotel Lusaka, located within the Arcades Shopping and Entertainment lifestyle hub opposite the Mulungushi Conference Centre, is constructing a substantial new wing which will see the hotel grow to 237 rooms.

The major expansion project is to service the growing demand for business travel as Zambia’s economic growth trajectory continues on the back of industry expansion and low interest rates.

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

“Protea Hotel Lusaka’s prime position in the capital as well as its superior accommodation and service offering means the demand is there to invest tens of millions of US$ in the creation of this large new wing.”

The design of the new build will blend in seamlessly with the existing hotel, which is modern with clean lines and earthy tones, offering all amenities including a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a bar, pool, free Wi-Fi, satellite television, in-room work stations and spacious showers.
The hotel also offers conferencing facilities for up to 80 people.
The new wing is expected to open in February 2014.

The extension of Protea Hotel Lusaka 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.
