Protea Hotels by Marriott signs 241-room hotel in Zambia
The hotel, opening in the Zambian capital Lusaka in 2021, will be the largest operating hotel under the brand in the country
Protea Hotels by Marriott has signed the Protea Hotel by Marriott Bonanza Estate, Lusaka, with Zambian company Union Gold Zambia Limited.
With 241 rooms, the hotel will be the largest operating hotel under the brand in the country and the brand’s ninth hotel with Union Gold Zambia.
The new hotel will be located within Bonanza Estate, a newly launched estate which is set amidst an 18-hole golf course designed by golf course designer Peter Matkovich.
This resort-style hotel development will comprise F&B venues, conferencing, spa and recreational facilities. The hotel will also have a standalone 2,000-seater amphitheatre, dedicated to hosting mega events and grand launches.
Bonanza Estate is close to the international airport and to the Multi-Facility Economic Zone – an initiative of the Zambian and Japanese governments and is set to become an emerging centre for business.
Construction of the hotel is scheduled to commence towards the beginning of 2019 with a targeted opening two years later.
