OUR PRODUCTS & SERVICES
The site on which Ilala stands was originally occupied by Mrs Green who owned and ran the original Sprayview Restaurant.
Thelma Newmarch recommended the name for this Victoria Falls Hotel as Ilala Lodge and played a major role in the overall look and feel of the hotel.
The highlight of the opening ceremony was the local Chief and the Spiritual elders who accompanied him and blessed the Lodge in their traditional way.
The rooms on the upper tier open out onto a balcony, while the lower rooms have double French doors leading onto the lush, manicured gardens – offering charming proximity to the warthogs, and sometimes hippos, which often visit the hotel grounds to graze.
All the rooms are spacious, and decorated with teak furnishings made from railway sleepers. This décor enhances the African ambience and laid-back lodge atmosphere of this boutique hotel. Muted tones and soft furnishings in creams and browns mirror this uncomplicated, restful atmosphere.
The muted theme continues to the en suite bathrooms which are decked in shades of grey with white highlights for restful repose in the large bathtub or a refreshing shower. A generous supply of complimentary toiletries are provided for your convenience.
