Polana Serena Hotel



The Polana Serena Hotel stands, built in 1922 is situated 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 (Maputo) International Airport is a 15-minute drive from the hotel.

The Hotel is an architectural splendour and is reminiscent of Mozambique’s interesting history.  The 5 star Polana has recently emerged from an extensive renovation programme restoring it to a standard befitting the undeniably best hotel in Maputo. This landmark historic building fuses classic charm with the ultimate in world-class amenities.

Guests can choose from one of the 142 rooms, ranging from standard rooms, deluxe rooms, studio rooms, executive rooms, executive suites and a presidential suite. Think contemporary African design fused with authentic Portuguese style and the result is elegant yet modern appeal; lavishly carved furniture, rich fabrics with muted tones and canopies above the large beds. Amenities include tea and coffee making facilities, satellite TV, mini bar, air-conditioning and phones.

The five star ‘Grande Dame’ of Maputo now also offers a choice of three restaurants: the Veranda Restaurant, the Delagoa fine-dining experience and the Aquarius Sushi Bar. Food involves intricate tastes of Portugal, Africa and India all in one! The Polana Bar is the ideal meeting place – for cocktails or aperitifs.

This Mozambique Hotel also features the Maisha Mind Body and Spirit Health Club and Spa, a sparkling swimming pool, lounge, business centre and three curio shops. To crown it all, a fancy ballroom hosts events and conferences.
