Southern Sun Maputo

Southern Sun Maputo

Hotel in Maputo, Mozambique

A reputation for service excellence in the only on-the-beach hotel in the city, with grand surroundings of mosaiced floors and vaulted wooden ceilings inspired by Maputo’s architectural past complemented by familiar and welcoming homely comforts like free-and-fast WiFi and big beds with ocean views. Our Maputo hotel’s standard-setting amenities invites relaxing and recharging, escaping and exploring or business-as-usual

Accommodation at Southern Sun Maputo offers guests a choice of 269 rooms and suites where every accommodation option creates a space for productivity or doing-nothing. Comfy beds, climate control, free WiFi, 24-hour room service and concierge attention come as-standard while suite upgrades include extras like Nespresso machines, ocean-view balconies and private lounges. 

From café-casual business meetings to high-level boardroom-briefings, Southern Sun Maputo is the setting for deal making and business creating in the city. Four adaptable conference spaces, a private dining room, an exclusive bar, and even a 200-year old fig tree hidden in a quiet beachfront courtyard allow us to host Maputo events that are discreet or celebratory.

Dining at Southern Sun Maputo is a celebration of Mozambique’s cuisine culture with a menu of tender pichana and king prawns, homemade peri- peri and freshly baked pasteis de nata, as well as pizzas wood fired, mojitos muddled with homegrown mint and burgers gourmet-style. Deco’s Bar & Terrace encourages lounge-relaxing and sundowner appreciating while Evolve restaurant changes with the mood to suit the menu. 

Beach and Indian Ocean views are framed by tall palms and green lawns, best enjoyed from the outside sundeck and infinity pool. The hotel’s location on the Avenida da Marginal means airport arrivals take as little as 20-minutes, giving you more time for island-and-beach day trips, getting down to business or exploring the markets and magic of Maputo.
