The Grande Dame of Maputo

Polana Serena Hotel combines absolute luxury with refined class, establishing its place among an elite class of luxury hotels. Considered the "Grande Dame" of Maputo, the five-star hotel stands on the leafy boulevards of one of the city’s most prestigious avenues.

Indulge in fine-dining beneath Delagoa Restaurant’s chandeliers on a fusion of French and Mozambican cuisine paired with the best of old and new world wines. Sample sushi delights at the Aquarius Bar overlooking Maputo Bay or take traditional afternoon tea in the Varanda Restaurant. The "Maisha" Mind, Body and Spirit Health Club and Spa facility offer rejuvenating treatments as well as a state-of-the-art gym, aerobics studio, indoor pool area and sauna. The 18m landscaped pool is set amid the sprawling tropical gardens, with a sun-deck and juice-bar.

The 142 rooms are presented with refined elegance and feature carved furniture and fabrics draped in muted tones of cream which reflect Mozambique’s Indo-Portuguese heritage.
