Southern Sun Maputo, in Mozambique, closed for renovations on 1 April and aims to re-open on 1 August.
At an investment of $30 million, with 423 contractors on site, this top-to-bottom revitalisation project will include the addition of 111 rooms and the complete refurbishment of the current 158 rooms and all the public areas.
Mediterranean influences of Mozambique’s history will be woven into the new design, including carpets, fabrics and furnishing detail. The restaurant space will be increased, and the menu upgraded to offer national and international cuisine. A clever lighting application will transform the atmosphere in the restaurant from a cool, fresh feel at breakfast to a warm, romantic and intimate venue at night.
The “new” Southern Sun Maputo will include a new 120-seat conference centre, two new meeting rooms and a brand new business centre.
Southern Sun Maputo is one of Tsogo Sun’s more than 90 hotels and 14 casino and entertainment destinations in South Africa, Africa, UAE and the Seychelles.
