Taj Pamodzi,one of the elegant and well maintained luxury and business hotel of Lusaka.
We booked stay on phone . Of course you need to be patient as you are connected from reception to marketing to reservations and then you wait for reservations confirmation email which never comes.
In these lean times you may get discount ,just ask.
You arrive through tree lined driveway to the car parking.
As you find your way towards reception desk you will need to follow all the covid protocols.The guard takes your temperature and requests you to sanitize your hand.The staff and visitors are masked up. Of course the occupancy is on lower side as only recently Zambia has come off the red list(a very unfair list)

After going through all the formalities you will be lead to your room by porter.Rooms are generic, nothing exceptional,just like any other room in any other hotel of the world.

Of course there are standard rooms,suites and yes a family can go for interconnected rooms.My teenage boys were happy with the complimentary wifi and its amazing speed!
There is a pool which we did not use and a gym area again we did not use.
There are two conference rooms .Snacks are served for delegates(saw loaded trollies pushed into conference room,no personal experience)

The USP of this hotel is its employees who make an effort to keep all the guest happy and satisfied.The cleaning staff keeps room spotless and are sensitive enough to leave water bottles and cosmetics to meet needs of a whole family and not the mandatory 2 per room.
The receptionist will honour your request for family friendly rates if she can.
The chef tries to cook food suiting your diet request.The breakfast is included in the room rates(taxes are not,better check)are specials for the day,Al carte as well as buffet for breakfast and dinner.Room dining is also allowed but give then at least 45mins to prepare and deliver your food.Food quality -Indian and continental is excellent.

The lounge can easily seat 50 people and has been planned that you can have business meetings,meet friends over coffee and cake or just chill after a long tiring day They have a grand piano and a pianist comes for couple of hours every to entertain the guest with live music
But the best feature is the spa called Jiva.There is whole range of treatments for individuals and couples .Then the time for many treatments is 45 mins to 2 hour session and you can also enjoy stream and sauna session.The masseur ladies are courteous and makes an effort to address your needs.
So when next in Lusaka do check out this hotel.

Attended a workshop in Baobab Hall. The skirting on the tables was held with pins which were not untidely secured.
Most of all, i went to the rest rooms and the stench was unbearable. Definitely not expected for a highly rated hotel lik XDe this one. When i tried to flush the lavatory, there was no water. As there was a worker in the room , I reported that there was no water, to which she rudely reported that there was low water pressure! With that attitude from the person who is supposed to keep the room clean, I understood why there was a nasty stench in the room.

After a hiatus of about 1.5 years, I spent 5 nights at the Taj this month. The service remains excellent from the front door to reception to the rooms, bar, and restaurants. The hotel is nicely decorated, always sparkling clean, and generally efficient. The rooms are clean and moderate in size. The views of the city of Lusaka from the upper floors are nice especially when rain clouds roll in. The breakfast buffet is excellent and includes a range of dishes from European to Indian. The same restaurant, Jacaranda, serves a range of continental, Indian and Zambian dishes for lunch and dinner. The best meal was Sunday brunch when there is an outstanding buffet with many great offerings including some very well made, tasty Indian food. There is free internet for guests that worked very well on a laptop but the internet on my smart phone repeatedly dropped such that I had to log in dozens of times per day.

Amazing, Pleasantly Surprised and want to be back for sure. Being a Vegetarian the warmth and hospitality by the entire staff, esp. Nitin Minocha and his team of Chefs - made my stay away from home a memorable one.

From every day morning till dinner, Nitin and Abdul personally would call up, plan and accommodate all the food and stay related, felt like I was with an extended family and not at a hotel.

The care the staff took to cleanse the room due to ongoing health challenges, I was worry free in the hotel, while outside the pandemic was raging on !

Enjoyable stay and a lovely vibe in the hotels lounge area. I however think the rooms now need an uplift. We need showers in the rooms, not this business of climbing the tub to take a shower and risk slipping in the room

I stayed at the Taj Pamodzi for 8 days on a recent business trip, having breakfast and dinner there most days and utilizing the pool facilities once. The room was spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage, kept very clean every day. I think I would have liked a 'no housekeeping' sign to put out on certain days as I did not feel the need for fresh towels and sheets every day, for example some days I only needed the water bottles to be replaced, bed made, and rubbish taken out. All of the staff I encountered were wonderful, very professional yet warm and really made a difference to my stay especially in the days where I dined alone. I loved the breakfast masala dosas and the overall quality of the food was very good. The only aspect which did not meet my expectations was the wifi, it was very hard to do any work as the shared wifi would only stay connected for a few minutes at a time before breaking, and the connection was very weak - I could not even stay on a whatsapp call with my family or have any wifi from the bed or the desk which was quite frustrating over the course of the long stay. The wifi was better in the lobby but signal to the rooms desperately needs to be upgraded, especially with its reputation as hotel for business travellers. Overall, a great stay.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Taj Pamodzi Hotel with a team of twenty-two people. Upon our arrival, we received a warm welcome from the front desk hotel staff. The bellboys were very gracious and efficient when managing our many suitcases and ensuring that we were using reputable cab companies. Thank you, Noah, Steve, Kennedy, Boniface, Edmond, Paxina, Emilia, Olivia, and Peter.

In addition, the food was amazing thanks to Executive Chef Nitin and his team. Our meals were both pleasing to the eyes and the palette. Chef Nitin greeted the team every evening, accommodated dietary needs, and makes a point of greeting hotel guests. I appreciated his warm hospitality, humble spirit, and his amazing culinary skills.

The wait staff were also very attentive and took extraordinary pride in serving hotel guests. A big THANK YOU to Moses, Patrick, Chongadi (sp?), Joshua, Frank, and Kisha for ensuring that our stay was enjoyable.

Lastly, the housekeeping staff was superb. Linda and Esnra (sp?) did an excellent job of cleaning our room, ensuring that we had fresh towels, and that our room remained with stocked with the necessary toiletries.

I recognize that the customer-facing staff also partnered with many people that I may not have mentioned in this review. For this reason, thank you to the entire team at the Taj Pamodzi Hotel for creating an excellent experience and wonderful memories. I highly recommend the Taj Pamodzi Hotel when staying in Lusaka, Zambia.
