Ilala Lodge Hotel has announced the completion of a new plunge pool and a new pool-side lounge. The new features overlook breath-taking views of the mist that rises above one of the seven natural wonders of the world, in Zimbabwe’s tourism capital, Victoria Falls.
It took just under two months to complete and follows a number of significant renovations set to enhance guest experiences at the hotel. The addition of the new pool and lounge increases the hotel’s entertainment and relaxing spaces by 172 square metres, and presents guests with a stylish, comfortable and serene setting in which to relax.
“We are experiencing an increasing number of guests visiting us from around the world as a result of a number of recent expansions and with this comes the demand for larger public areas,” said Martin Vaughan, General Manager of Ilala Lodge Hotel.
The plunge pool marks a modern addition to the existing swimming pool located on the newly refurbished deck above. While immersed in the cool waters of the plunge pool, guests can enjoy views of the spray that rises from the powerful Victoria Falls waterfall, known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.
Equipped with 73 stylish and well-appointed rooms, Ilala Lodge Hotel has undergone several recent expansions, including the addition of 16 deluxe guest rooms and the hotel’s most luxurious suite to date, the new Strathearn Suite.
Ilala Lodge Hotel is home to the award-winning Palm Restaurant, famous for its gourmet cuisine. While enjoying al-fresco dining under the starry African skies, guests can listen to the rumble and see the spray from the mighty Victoria Falls waterfall.
