Southern Sun Dar es Salaam hotel invests millions to assure continuous guest comfort and satisfaction

Tsogo Sun, South Africa’s leading hotels, gaming and entertainment company, offers a wide distribution of hotels in Africa, South Africa, the Indian Ocean and Abu Dhabi. Providing world-class hospitality and exciting entertainment and leisure experiences, Tsogo Sun continuously focus on the renovation and renewal of their properties to maintain the high standard which had become synonymous with visiting a Tsogo Sun property.

For over 15 years the Southern Sun Dar es Salaam hotel has been the firm favourite of business and leisure tourists finding themselves in this vibrant, culturally rich Tanzanian city. Preserving their reputation and maintaining the high level of commitment to their guests and the brand, the hotel just completed a major refurbishment of all 152 en-suite rooms - standard and executive rooms, as well as suites – at a cost of approximately US$4.2-million.

Tsogo Sun and Blacksmith Interior Inspiration, a well-known industry-experienced interior designing outfit, collaborated to ensure that the designs of the bedrooms were practical, and combined global hotel design trends and standards with local market requirements. Cognisant of the city’s tropical climatic conditions, typified by hot and humid weather throughout much of the year, the refurbishment aimed for a modern, light feel involving a complete redecoration and replacement of furniture, drapes, lighting, amenities and the addition of new timber-looking floors that better suits the city’s very humid conditions. Additionally, all rooms were fitted with upgraded air-conditioning units and the associated chilled water pipework and insulation were refurbished.

“A great hotel anticipates normal wear and tear, and reacts quickly to upgrade and maintain the offering that guests are accustomed to. With the refurbishment we are assured to maintain our status as the best ‘4-star’ hotel in the city, providing both our numerous international guests and our loyal regulars from Tanzania with comfortable rooms, quality facilities and spectacular service,” says Adam Fuller, General Manager at the Southern Sun Dar es Salaam hotel.

Located in the heart of the city, the Southern Sun Dar es Salaam hotel is just 14 kilometres from the airport; is in close proximity to the Diplomatic Quarter and Corporate market locations; is adjacent to the Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre; and offers various leisure experiences. Perfect for both business and leisure travellers alike.

The hotel’s newly refurbished en-suite guest rooms cater to the needs of the modern traveller, including elegant decor, comfortable desks, and of course, complimentary WiFi. In-room amenities include new 42” Smart TVs and a mini bar fridge as standard to all rooms.  A fully-equipped business centre and modern conference room offers a range of services and equipment for hosting meetings.

Additionally, leisure travellers have come to appreciate and enjoy the benefits of Southern Sun Dar es Salaam. The hotel is not only perfectly placed geographically for stay-overs on the way to and from Tanzania's numerous tourist destinations, but is the perfect destination from where guests can explore the best attractions Dar es Salaam has to offer. The on-site travel centre will see to all travel needs - a day at the zoo, a boat ride to Bongoyo and Mbudya or tours to Zanzibar or any of Tanzania’s National Parks.  Beach lovers will delight at the nearby South Beach, with its pristine, powdery white sand and crystal clear waters and the Slipway Craft Market is perfect for picking up local crafts, artwork, carvings, materials and trinkets.

With a focus on providing the best service and the most comfortable accommodation possible, leisure and business guests are sure to feel at home from the moment they arrive at the newly refurbished Southern Sun Dar es Salaam.
