Rezidor has opened the very first Radisson Blu property in Mozambique – the First Class Radisson Blu Hotel, Maputo. The 154-rooms hotel is a great addition to the contemporary cityscape, enjoying a prominent location overlooking the Indian Ocean, within easy reach of Maputo International Airport and the vibrant downtown. Maputo is the capital city of Mozambique, a flourishing south east African country bordered by the Indian Ocean, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and South Africa. It was discovered by Vasco da Gama in 1498 and colonized by Portugal in 1505. The Radisson Blu Hotel, Maputo is located near famous sights like the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Our Lady of Fatima, the Coconuts Entertainment Centre, the Polana Casino, the Natural History Museum and the Associação Núcleo de Arte, home to the studios of more than 100 artists, sculptors and ceramicists.
Elegant and spacious, the hotel’s 154 beautifully designed rooms and suites set a new level of contemporary style and comfort in Maputo. Guests enjoy a range of first-class amenities and Radisson Blu signature services such as free high speed internet access. The sophisticated Filini Bar & Restaurant serves delicious Italian cuisine and wines. With its nice terrace, the airy restaurant is the perfect setting for a business lunch or a romantic dinner. The chic Oceano Bar is a lively place to catch up with friends; and the trendy Palmeira Lounge is an oasis of calm and the ideal spot for taking time out. And, to top it all off, the glamorous Pool Bar is Maputo’s latest hot-spot destination.
