Meliá Hotels International has announced that it will open a Meliá Maputo Hotel, the group’s first in Mozambique, in May this year.
The hotel is located in the heart of the Mozambican capital, just 20 minutes from the international airport, and is the result of a partnership with the Portuguese Hoti Hoteis group.
The Meliá Maputo offers 171 rooms and suites, meeting rooms, event spaces including an auditorium that can accommodate up to 150 guests, a restaurant and a coffee bar.
Meliá Maputo is within walking distance of some of the most famous attractions in Maputo, such as the National Art Museum, the Cathedral and the Jardim dos Profesores Park.
The hotel will adhere to the high standards of the Meliá Hotels & Resorts brand, which continues to grow internationally thanks to its innovative spaces, experiences and services, all of which are designed to meet the needs of modern travellers and are inspired by the traditions of Spanish hospitality.
Maputo has increased in popularity as a tourist destination within recent years, as the city is the country’s business capital whilst also appealing to leisure travellers. With its Mediterranean-style architecture, seaside location and large avenues such as the Avenida Marginal, it is one of the most attractive capital cities in Africa.
Visitors can find great dining, shopping and leisure facilities in the city as well as a broad range of cultural attractions.
A presence in Maputo is expected to open the doors for Meliá to potential growth in other vacation destinations in the country thanks to the growing popularity of travel to Mozambique.
The agreement for this hotel is the result of the partnership between Meliá Hotels International and the Portuguese hotel group Hoti Hoteis.
