Palm River Lodge

Palm River Lodge: Our full report

Palm River Lodge will be a 4-star luxury hotel, located on the banks of the Zambezi River.

Currently under construction is set to open in July 2021. The hotel aims to offer high-quality accommodations for various travellers in an idyllic location and very exclusive facilities surrounded by beautiful landscapes.

A sister property to the hugely popular Ilala Lodge, Palm River Lodge will consists of 73 luxury rooms, a large presidential suite as well as two honeymoon suites and two private villas. All of the rooms will be designed in natural colours with modern and stylish interiors. There is also going to be a spa, a large outdoor swimming pool as well as a gym. Two different dining options will also be on offer, with one exclusive indoor restaurant serving á la carte and one outdoor restaurant with fantastic views of the Zambezi River.


Our view

While it’s too early for us to have visited Palm River Lodge, it is being constructed and managed by the same people who own Ilala Lodge. We have stayed at Ilala many times previously and it’s one of our favourite hotels in the area, so we have high hopes that Palm River Lodge will be a great new hotel in the Victoria Falls area.
