Southern Sun Maputo Reopens After US$30 million Makeover
Tsogo Sun’s Southern Sun Maputo, now the largest hotel in the Mozambican capital, has re-opened after a four-month closure during which it went through a US$30 million expansion and makeover.
Travelling to Maputo is increasingly easy for South Africans as flights from Johannesburg and Durban are regular and take about an hour.
Southern Sun Maputo’s extensive renovations included the addition of 110 rooms and conference facilities, refurbishing of the existing 158 rooms and public areas, and expanding the restaurant, lobby, and back-of-house facilities.
The restaurant, aptly named Evolve, is designed to provide a completely different look and feel from daytime to night-time.
Offering an outstanding view over the Bay of Maputo, clever lighting application transforms the atmosphere of the restaurant from a cool, fresh feel with a touch of blue at breakfast, to a warm, romantic and intimate venue with a touch of red, at night.
Evolve’s menu features a sumptuous breakfast buffet, followed by a light snacks and lunch menu during the day, and exceptional national and international cuisine – featuring several seafood and other Mozambican specialities – in the evenings.
The hotel expansion also included the addition of a new 120-seat conference centre, two new meeting rooms and a brand new business centre, for the convenience and comfort of business travellers.
