Sarovar Hotels recently announced the opening of its first hotel in Zambia – Neelkanth Sarovar Premiere, Lusaka. With three operating hotels in Tanzania and Kenya, this will be their fourth in the African continent.
It has been a conscious strategy by the management to focus on key centres of the African continent which has an English-speaking population and a sizable Indian diaspora. Continuing with the strategy, Lusaka has become the base for their fourth property.
Talking about specifics, Neelkanth Sarovar Premiere is an all-suite upscale development in the vibrant Manda Hill area of Lusaka and offers easy connectivity to the airport. It offers 82 all-suite, an all-day-dining restaurant, poolside grill, bar, lobby cafe, fitness centre and a spa. The hotel has a large banquet and conference facility to accommodate up to 600 people.
Designed to exacting standards, the hotel interiors are contemporary and make liberal use of traditional African art. Each suite boasts of a unique flavour. All suite in the hotel is equipped with best in class modern amenities.
Lusaka, the geographical and commercial heart of Zambia is the sure stop for any business traveller to Southern Africa. For the leisure traveller, the city offers wildlife exploration in the Munda Wanga Park. History aficionados can visit the Henry Tayali Gallery. Zambia is also home to the majestic Victoria Falls.
