All your business and social needs under one roof
A quorum is a select group of people coming together to form a meeting, and this is the foundation from which The Quorum in Lusaka was established. The upscale establishment was built to provide highly personalised services to corporates, business executives, and entrepreneurs alike, who are shaking up their respective industries. This establishment presents a platform for individuals to network and create mutually beneficial connections to propel their businesses and social agendas further.
The Quorum opened in June 2020 and prides itself in providing exceptional experiences for their members and guests. As The Quorum caters to a range of clientele, they have a model that tailors services specifically to each client, and that places them a cut above other players in the hospitality industry.
The 26-suite boutique hotel is spaced over two floors and is keen on maintaining the high service levels being offered, with two restaurants, one cafe servicing a private workspace, conferencing facilities, a gym with state-of-the-art Precor equipment, a banking hall and a spa.
Also on site is The Hub, an invigorating environment to give members & guests a creative workspace to boost in meeting their deliverables. The Hub has several individual and communal workstations within an open space, with a reading nook tucked away in a corner to aid an escape from reality when needed. There are three private meeting rooms equipped with interactive Samsung flipcharts as well as conferencing facilities with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment. The conference room’s architecture is vibrant, with colour tones of green and blue resonating through each room to spark a sense of creativity.
Full-access members of The Quorum have several benefits available to them such as exclusive and unrestricted access to all the facilities in the building, member discounts on hotel room rates, access to a private banking suite on site, exclusive benefits with affiliates including the Lusaka Golf Club, Specialty Emergency Services, SES (a Zambian-based company offering premium health and life insurance) and Mayfair Insurance Company.
Potential members have a vast array of membership categories to choose from. There is an essential and premium banking membership in collaboration with the private banking suites of selected leading commercial banks. In addition, there is the Q Country membership for those who do not reside in Lusaka, as well as an Under 35 category, which was launched on Youth Day 2021 to cater to the young and aspiring clientele.
Always striving to offer something new (and convenient) to its clients, The Quorum has introduced tailoring where members can schedule an appointment to receive a bespoke fitting whilst enjoying a collection of high-end whiskeys, cigars and wines from around the world in The Q Lounge, one of the club’s most sought after spaces with its art-deco vibe.
The Quorum provides its members with top-tier service that goes beyond access to a building and its amenities. The true value of its membership lies in the convenience of having unique services brought to you all under one roof. While one gets the most out of membership, a selection of services and facilities are open to members of the general public, for instance dining in the fine dine restaurant, 7th Sense is open to guests with a “Single Day Membership” of ZMW100 per person.
Hotel guests receive handwritten letters welcoming them, a rare and personal touch in an age of electronic communication. As soon as I walked into the hotel suite, I was surrounded by luxury, a high thread count haven. Each suite’s minibar is stocked with refreshments and a Nespresso machine. The room had a tranche with a luggage rack for easy placement of suitcases. In the spacious wardrobe there was a sizable safe to secure my valuables.
In the far corner a thick cotton robe made from fine, soft fabric was hanging alongside a pair of
plush and cosy slippers. For accommodation, guests have a choice of the junior suites, deluxe suites, executive suites and king suites. I was particularly impressed with the design of the king suite, which lived up to its name in every way. The bathroom area had both a bath tub and a walk-in shower unit. However, what I loved most about this setup was the ability to completely collapse the wall division between the bathroom and bedroom, allowing for a choice of an open, free-flow setup
