On the outskirts of Lusaka on the road to Kafue you will find Sandy's Creations, nestled in an amazing garden and herb nursery is a lodge like no other.
The beautiful individual thatch roof flatlets are spread around a huge swimming pool ensuring an intimate setting in a well manicured garden setting. The rooms are well equipped and very comfortable.
Wifi is very good with routers all over ensuring good signal everywhere.
Service from the well stocked bar and restaurant is quick and friendly. The food is tasty although they need to work on the timing of the steaks, or request that your steak not be served on a sizzling plate if you like it rear to medium.
Breakfast is a standard buffet type and has a nice selection of cereals breads and cheeses.
On the same property is Harry's Grill where the salad selection was fresh and tasty, we experienced the same issues with the steaks as at the pool bar. Over cooked because of the sizzling plates. Our steaks were immediately replaced with new ones served on normal plates and were very tasty.
Overall this is definitely my new spot in Lusaka as it is away from the busy city centre, and I am looking forward to my next trip. Highly recommended for businessmen or holiday travelers. Well done Guys you got the recipe right.

Stayed here twice already after a long haul flight before moving on to the next destination and I love it as it’s such a peaceful place after the hustle and bustle outdoors. The rooms are gorgeous thatched roof huts surrounded by plush plants. If you’re a plant lover, you’ll love this place as the gardens are devine. They also have a garden centre attached to the resort if wanting to buy any plants or seeds! The room and bathroom has been spotless on both occasions that I’ve been there, however they’d need to improve their WiFi and make sure that they have enough towels in the bathroom! I’ll probably stay again on my way when passing via Lusaka.

The rooms have a wonderful ethnic feel. They are large, spacious and airy. The wide glass doors give you a magnificent view of the well maintained gardens and picturesque swimming pool. Sandy's is a one stop shop with 3 different cafes and restaurants to choose from. All with a different selection of menu and very affordable There are grocery stores, offices, a gym with saunas, the largest garden centre in Zambia, and many more useful amenities. Thank you Sandy's for giving me a trip I will never forget and well done to the team for their incredible hospitality. .

As part of a family vacation to mid Africa we stayed at Sandy’s Creation Resort for a few nights and we are so very glad that we did. The resort is striking to look at, lovely bars serving exotic cocktails by the pool whilst soaking up the ambience of this tropical like oasis. As nature lovers we loved looking around at the perfectly manicured gardens. Our accommodation was equally as impressive, spacious, tasteful with all you could want for. The staff at this resort really know how to put guests at ease and nothing was ever too much trouble, we were always welcomed with happy friendly faces.

I would strongly recommend Sandy’s Creations Resort to anyone visiting the area.

The stay was comfortable, they have lovely cosy rooms built like huts with thatched roofs.
The staff are super friendly, the male receptionists has so much energy he makes you feel very welcome. It has a pool as well which makes your stay even more worth while.
Negative parts are;
1. that the internet is weak unless you sit by the bar which I learnt very late in my stay.
2. Opening the slide doors can be a bit of challenge because of the overlapping metal frame
3. For a vegan like me there isn’t much choice apart from tomatoes, beans and mushrooms
4. The spirits are very pricey although if you opt for lagers those are cheap.

Otherwise all in all I would definitely recommend a stay here

What a wonderful resort in a stunning African ethnic style. The central bar/restaurant area is wonderfully large, spacious and airy with a very comprehensive menu and attentive, helpful, friendly staff. My two bed chalet was just off the bar area and could not have been nicer. The chalet was very, spacious comfortable and well equipped with air conditioning, large television and lovely big shower. The gardens and pool area of the resort were stunning and very restful. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the cuisine was exceptional and very generous. I was very impressed also by the huge and very well equipped conference facilities, which could cater for any occasion, no matter how large. The surrounding Mint Cafe and garden centre were also both a delight and very well stocked. I was amazed by Sandy's Creations and cannot wait for my next visit which I hope will be very soon. An exceptional experience.

The surrounding on this estate and the lodge is full of refreshing vegetation and water pools. Though you will continually get noise of all kinds of vehicles because of the close vicinity to the highway. My room was very clean, spacious and cozy, with very clean beddings every day. My best meals were breakfast meals. Dinner was nicely hot, but their A la carte menu was rigid (restricted menu) and lacked creativity. Sometimes at the Harry's Grill (the restaurant at the lodge), I had to search for cutlery and salt after food was served. Internet at the lodge was not up to speed. I'm sure this can be improved. Overall, it was a lovely place to to be in.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were clean and staff very friendly. Don't get me started on the grounds. Beautiful gardens with very fresh air. I loved the buffet breakfast and a la carte menu at lunch and supper. Will definitely be back soon

We spent one night at Sandy's Creations Resort. The pool, garden area and rooms are very nice and we had a nice dinner at the pool restaurant. The receptionist was kind to let us chose which room we preferred on arrival. We were however surprised to find that there was no mosquito net covering the bed and when asking for one, received a somewhat rude reply that we should have asked in advance and it was not possible to have put up now.
