Rotana has signed a hotel management agreement with Grandview Hotels and Resorts Limited to manage a new five-star hotel in Zambia, further strengthening its presence in the African market.
Scheduled to be opened by 2021, it will be situated in the heart of Lusaka, and will be the first-ever property to be operated under the Rotana Hotels and Resorts brand in Zambia.
The five-star hotel will feature 150 rooms and 50 hotel apartments that will provide guests with all the comforts and the luxury for a pleasant and memorable long stay experience.
The hotel will be the addition to the company’s three operating properties in the Africa including Al Salam Rotana, Khartoum, Sudan; Kin Plaza Arjaan by Rotana, Kinshasa, DR Congo; and Grand Rotana Resort & Spa, Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
Located in the newly expanded Central Business District of Lusaka, the hotel will be a stone’s throw away from major landmarks in the city, including the East Park Mall and multinational corporate offices, Embassies, and Ministries.
When opened, the new hotel will bring Rotana’s total inventory in Africa to 1,060. Rotana has planned new hotels in Angola, Mauritania, Nigeria, and Tanzania to be opened by 2022.
