Known best for its distinctly personalised hospitality, contemporary style, unrivalled charm and excellent cuisine the Southern Sun Maputo was also known until 2008 as the Holiday Inn Maputo. A change in name has certainly not effected service and if anything the hotel is looking forward to a brighter future under its new brand identity. This beachfront hotel situated on the Avenida da Marginal affords visitors with panoramic Indian Ocean views and the convenience of being located close to the Maputo International Airport. Also close by are some of the cities many exiting nightclubs, street restaurants and many monuments, museums and architectural gems.
Mozambique’s Portuguese heritage is echoed throughout the well-appointed hotel and accommodation comes in the form of 2 luxurious suites, 6 executive suites and 158 guest rooms. When not luxuriating besides the sparkling pool or enjoying a workout at the fitness centre the Southern Sun has a whole host of activities to keep every guest happy, from city tours to deep sea fishing, you name it, they offer it. After a long day of sightseeing culinary delights combining international and local flavours are specially prepared by well trained chefs and will enchant even the most seasoned of palates.
Some of the sights you really need to make the effort to see in Maputo include the Botanical Gardens and the Old Chathederal. Don't miss the bustling nightlife, where you can samba till the break of dawn and the chaotic daytime street markets, where you can buy almost anything. There is also a golf course within 8km's and a tennis court less than five kilometres away.
