Harare Accommodation

MeiklesMeikles Hotel is situated in the heart of Harare and overlooks the historic landmark and colourful flower gardens of Africa Unity Square.

The gracious charm, vibrant culture and silver service showcased at this legendary establishment have earned its reputation as Zimbabwe's premier hotel.

Since 1915, our famous five star hotel has been renowned for providing a very special brand of service. When you step into the elegant foyer at Meikles, you will know you have made the right choice. The smartly-turned out, professional and welcoming staff, meticulous attention to detail, the grand piano being quietly played to guests relaxing over coffee and cakes, indulgent spa treatments and world-class facilities are all hallmarks of our hotel. As befits our status as an international hotel, security is a priority, with the hotel and its guests protected around the clock by electronic surveillance systems in all public areas, in room corridors, at exits and entrances and by uniformed and plainclothes security personnel in and around the hotel.

The natural warmth of the Zimbabwean people is reflected in the welcome given to our guests by our trained and experienced staff, many of whom have served Meikles Hotel and its guests for long periods of time – in some cases for 40 years! They understand that the service standards expected by guests at Zimbabwe's premier hotel should be second to none and this is a key message that is also passed on to our young and enthusiastic trainees, of whom there are a sizeable number in the various departments at any given time.

Currently there are 13 individual lodges plus the Royal Lodge Complex, with an additional 5 tented River lodges on their way. Most lodges are located along the river and its confluence with the water almost to your balcony.

Pamuzinda carries a unique character and charm like no other lodge in Zimbabwe. Originally purpose built in the mid 80s as the flag ship for the Cresta International Hotel Chain, the main lodge of this ‘Queen of its era’ burnt down in 2010.This inadvertently allowed the current owners to create something truly special to the tastes and expectations of a modern era yet still maintaining its colonial style.

The Royal Lodge at Pamuzinda has everything any travelling dignitary or international globetrotter would expect, including its own swimming pool, jacuzzi, under star day beds and showers, fire pit and braai areas and full personal butler service.
