Yes, they... More

The reception and 'lounge' area was immaculate, plenty seating and tables, books, computers, games room, inside bar and view of the outside... More

HOWEVER now the hotel has been taken over and renamed as the Hovima it has rapidly slid downhill. I don't usually leave negative reviews, but I am... More

We stayed at the Hovima for the first time in October 2013 (when it was the Luabay). Since changing hands the hotel is just as good and there have been some improvements such as new sunbeds and furniture. Our group consisted of myself, my husband, our 16 year old daughter and her friend. We decided to return because the hotel... More
