Polana Serena Hotel, Maputo – Mozambique
Built in 1922 along sweepingly splendid lines, the magnificent Polana Serena Hotel has long been considered one of Africa’s finest hotels.
The hotel stands at the very heart of Maputo on one of the city’s most prestigious avenues and within easy reach of the international embassies, government buildings, presidential complex, shops, restaurants and sidewalk cafés. Mavalane International Airport is a 15 minute drive from the hotel.
Offering 142 rooms, many of which are spacious suites, presented with refined elegance, and with lavish references to Mozambique’s Indo-Portuguese heritage, the rooms in this historic colonial building feature predominantly exotically carved furniture, juxtaposed with luxurious fabrics in muted tones of cream and off-white.
The hotel also offers the ‘Maisha’ Mind Body and Spirit Health Club and Spa, a stunning swimming pool, extensive gardens, an exclusive residents’ lounge, a business centre, a beauty salon and three gift shops.
How to get there:
TAP fly’s directly to Maputo from Europe. You will be met at the airport by a Polana representative, to escort you to the hotel.
