Protea Hotels has announced the signing of agreements for the development of its first hotel in Botswana, the ninth country in Africa in which the brand will have a presence.
First established in South Africa, Protea Hotels has expanded over recent years into Zambia, Nigeria, Namibia, Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania and Ghana.
Protea’s new property, scheduled to open in early 2018, will be located in the capital, Gaborone. It is strategically positioned in the new Central Business District of the city.
The hotel will offer 160 rooms of various sizes and types, and will also feature substantial conference, meeting and event facilities.
The large ballroom, designed for versatile use, can be converted into four meeting rooms, giving the hotel the ability to host up to eight meetings at any time.
Other facilities include a business centre, bar, restaurant, fitness centre and outdoor pool.
