Palm River Hotel Restaurant

Enjoy a fusion fare inside the hotel’s grand dining hall, surrounded by large airy collonaded walls, tall ceilings with the warmth of a classic parquet floor beneath. The dining hall flows out onto an open veranda space and a large al fresco dining area, sheltered by tall ceilings that merge with the canopy of trees. The refreshing and airy dining spaces are complimented by sweeping garden views framed by cobbled pathways leading directly down to the Zambezi River beyond. Enjoy early morning breakfast while looking out over the awakening river, or soak in the atmosphere of dining under a starry African sky. The restaurant offers an à la carte menu serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to hotel guests and day visitors, while the cuisine reflects the natural setting, using fresh, local ingredients. The Palm River Hotel restaurant also offers in-room dining as well as private dining experiences.

Other Facilities


Spa Treatments

Unwind and relax, in the hotel’s luxurious spa, with tranquil views of the Zambezi River. The spa’s offerings include a variety of aromatherapy treatments inspired by the natural surrounds, soothing massages and beauty treatments such as manicures and pedicures. Contact reception for treatment options and pricing.


Tours and Activities Desk

With so much to see and do in the Victoria Falls and surrounding area, the tours and activities desk offers an invaluable information asset to help guests plan their stay and book their activities inhouse. Our top recommendation is to visit the Victoria Falls Rainforest. It is open from 6am to 6pm. Contact Reception to discover more.


Swimming Pool

A 34m infinity pool in the foreground of the main area merges with the horizon and offers a cool oasis under the shade of towering trees. Cleverly separated into sections, the pool includes a 24m lap pool, a shallow splash pool ideal for children and a refreshing infinity pool on the lower section. The pools lay parallel to the calming waters of the Zambezi River making for an idyllic spot for some poolside relaxation. At night the pool area transforms into a starlit wonderland, with the use of cleverly illuminated pebbles and lighting, and if you’re lucky you might even spot some night wildlife such as hippos or elephants as they forage in the shade of the night.


Shuttle Bus

A complimentary shuttle bus will run on a schedule throughout the day, transporting guests between The Palm River Hotel and Victoria Falls Town. The shuttle stops at key landmarks for guests’ convenience including the Victoria Falls Rainforest, Ilala Lodge Hotel and various craft markets along the route. Kindly contact Reception for further timings and details.
