Cape Town - The new Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower opened its doors on 7 April 2014, making it the fourth Protea Hotel offering in the Zambian capital and the eighth in Zambia as a whole.

Built to meet the growing demand for conference and business accommodation in Lusaka, the hotel has already received a number of forward bookings for its conference facilities as well as its rooms.

The hotel boasts the following features:

•    Nine-storeys and 137 rooms
•    Four suites
•    30 twin deluxe rooms
•    103 king deluxe rooms
•    Swimming pool
•    Ninth floor restaurant and bar

The suites and rooms are comfortable, with minimalist but warm, decor and the facilities meet the needs of both corporate leisure and travellers.

The hotel also offers guests and visitors two meeting rooms and three boardrooms rooms, to complement the conferencing facilities available at the neighbouring Protea Hotel Lusaka, which can accommodate 80 delegates.

Protea Hotels now falls within the Marriott International Hotels portfolio.
Marriott International Middle East and Africa President and Managing Director Alex Kyriakidis said that Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower is one of more than 20 hotels (3 000 rooms) that will be opening in sub-Saharan Africa in the next four years.
In the Middle East and African regions as a whole, the development pipeline extends to more than 65 hotels and 14 300 rooms between now and 2018 across the various brands in the Marriott International portfolio.

Kyriakidis added that he has no doubt that Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower will be successful and Lusaka is a vibrant capital from which much of the country’s economic growth prediction of more than 6% for 2014 will stem.
