5 Star Hotel Maputo, Mozambique

With its beautiful, palm-fringed Indian Ocean coastline, vibrant mix of cultures and grand colonial architecture, Mozambique offers abundant opportunities for adventure, experience and discovery. In the heart of all this splendour, the historic Polana Serena Hotel in Maputo has upheld a rich tradition of hospitality since 1922.

Maputo’s premier 5-star hotel address and aptly described as the Grand Dame of African Hotels has long welcomed discerning travellers with a unique combination of colonial ambience and architecture, modern service and amenities, and unparalleled personalised attention finely attuned to each guest. The iconic hotel was originally built in the “palace style” nearly one hundred years ago, attracting a guest list that included international diplomats, politicians and heads of state during World War II. Today, the legend lives on after a meticulous refurbishment that preserved the hotel’s original heritage whilst seamlessly introducing modern comforts and amenities to ensure its place as one of the leading heritage hotels in Mozambique and throughout the continent.

In addition to beautifully appointed guest rooms, you can choose among our elegant suites with spectacular Indian Ocean views. The recently refurbished Polana Mar wing exudes an African scent and provides for spectacular views over the sea standing out as the place for both business and leisure. Relax in a comfortable chaise by the magnificent ocean-view pool and gardens or indulge with an Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow body treatment or an Ayurvedic Hot Stone Massage at the Serena Maisha Mind Body & Spirit Spa. Lovers of gourmet cuisine will relish the array of dining choices, including splendid French cuisine at The Delagoa Restaurant, savoury international dishes and sweeping views of Maputo Bay at Varanda and open-air sushi delights at Aquarius.
