1 min read

Protea Hotels by Marriott is expanding it’s footprint in Zambia the opening of their new hotel at Bonanza Estate in Lusaka.

With 241 rooms, the hotel will be the largest operating hotel under the brand in the country and the brand’s 9th hotel with Union Gold Zambia. The new hotel will be located within Bonanza Estate, a newly launched estate which is set amid the scenic environmen of an 18-hole golf course designed by world renowned golf course designer Peter Matkovich.

This is expected to attract major international golf tournaments and emerge as a key attraction for leisure travels and golf enthusiasts. This resort style hotel development will include food and beverage venues, conferencing, spa and recreational facilities.

The hotel will also boast a standalone 2,000-seater amphitheater, dedicated to hosting mega events and grand launches.

Zambia is a country with huge potential for both business and leisure tourism, yet it has for many years been under-serviced in the rollout of tourist infrastructure. The new venture will meet the rising demand for quality lodging in the country.
