Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel
Stanley & Livingstone is Victoria Fall’s first boutique hotel – situated in Zimbabwe, 15 minutes’ drive from the area’s namesake Victoria Falls (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). This intimate hotel, surrounded by the tranquillity of manicured gardens bordering a natural reserve, is intended to be a pause on a spectacular Southern African itinerary. Its fresh design takes an easy-going approach to colonial style, and its spaces – both elegant and approachable – encourage you to settle in and relax.Thoughtful comforts, attentive service, and good food enhance the experience by ensuring you are very well taken care of. The hotel is both an ideal base from which to explore and a tranquil place to pause in one of the continent’s most-visited destinations.
The 16 luxury suites are located in tranquil gardens and fronted by private furnished terraces. Each is air-conditioned and elegantly appointed. They include a canopied king-sized bed, topped by a down duvet and pillows, an en-suite shower and bath, mini bar, satellite television and telephone.
The property’s lounge, bar, restaurant, terrace and serviced pool face onto tranquil gardens and all encourage you to settle in and relax.
