Protea Hotels by Marriott has strengthened its partnership with Union Gold Zambia Limited after signing an agreement for the construction of a new Protea Hotels by Marriot Bonanza Estate in Lusaka.

Construction on the 241-room hotel is scheduled to start in the beginning of 2019, with the opening planned for two years later.

The new property will be the largest hotel operating under the brand in Zambia.

The resort-style hotel development will have a range of food and beverage venues, conferencing options, a spa, and other recreational facilities.

It will also have a standalone amphitheatre dedicated to hosting large-scale events and launches, and able to seat around 2 000 people.

Mark O’Donnell, Chairman of Union Gold Zambia, said: “Zambia is a country with huge potential for both business and leisure tourism, yet it has for many years been under-serviced in the roll-out of tourist infrastructure. Our new venture will meet the rising demand for quality lodging in the country.”

 

The hotel will be located in the newly announced Bonanza Estate, which features an 18-hole golf course designed by Peter Matkovich.

The hope is to attract international golf tournaments and make the estate a key destination for leisure travellers and golf enthusiasts.

Development of Bonanza Estate into a new urban hub is tied to the future expansion of Lusaka beyond the central business district precinct.

Bonanza Estate is 10km from Kenneth Kaunda International Airport, and close to the Multi-Facility Economic Zone, an initiative of the Zambian and Japanese governments.
