The award-winning Royal Chundu, camouflaged along the banks of the Zambezi River and hugging the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, is a hideaway of untold tranquility where romance and adventure are intertwined for the perfect getaway. Further downstream lies the iconic Victoria Falls, only 20 miles (30km) away.
A Relais & Châteaux member, Royal Chundu encompasses two lodges, River Lodge and Island Lodge, both with kaleidoscopic views of the Zambezi River. 10 exclusive River Lodge suites, disguised among the riverine vegetation, radiate seclusion and tranquility. The charm and secrecy of the 4 spacious Island Lodge villas is accentuated by its location resting on the Katombora river-island, sheltered by gushing rapids.
The larger of Royal Chundu’s two lodges, River Lodge scatters 10 suites along the riverfront with wooden decks ensuring intimate and serene views accompanied by uninterrupted privacy. These luxurious suites gaze across the Zambezi River, and peer into neighbouring Zimbabwe’s picturesque landscape.
Thatched roofing and interior furnishings echo the Zambezi hues and accentuate the surrounding natural beauty. An outdoor boma for dinners around the fire as well as a lounge and bar encompass the main area. In close proximity to a helicopter pad, River Lodge is easily accessed and welcomes children.
Be transferred by boat to Katombora Island, wrapped in the watery embrace of the Zambezi. With only four spacious villas on the island, Royal Chundu’s Island Lodge illuminates tranquility, exclusivity and privacy. The well-appointed suites, splashed with cobalt blue and earthy palettes, open up onto private decks overlooking the river rapids. Refresh in the infinity pool and in the evenings relax in a riverfront bathtub – the perfect romantic getaway.
