I just spent two weeks in the Southern Sun for a business trip, and I was extremely happy with this unique hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the location on the beach idyllic, and in this age of mega-soulless hotels, this place still manages to have a unique Mozambican vibe. Internet connection is better in the newer part of... More

I have stayed in numerous hotels across the continent from Dakar to Lagos to Nairobi, and the Southern Sun Maputo is my favourite. The service is excellent, rooms generous, the setting on the beach is perfect and the food delicious. It is a pleasure to come back at the end of a day's work and relax on the deck overlooking...

I have been going to Maputo, a week at a time, almost monthly, since 2003. My work takes me to London, Dubai, Accra, Malabo, new York and a lot of other international destinations, but nothing feels quite like Maputo. It has become a home, away from home, and this is largely due to the hotel, the staff and the food... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in September 2014 on Business.... but its tough to say its conducive for business (and that's in a good way). The hotel has a nice old world charm about it. The elevator was it and miss and is an issue if you're higher up. Located on the beach, the swell disappears in the morning... More

The Southern Sun in Maputo is a great place to stay when you are in Maputo. If you are there on business (as the majority of clients seemed to be), it is very convenient for meetings as it is well situated, has good lounge areas where you can have a quiet and private conversation with your clients/contacts. Rooms are very... More

In addition to this, the breakfast was excellent, the location amazing especially if you get a room overlooking the Indian Ocean, the gym is well equipped, clean and not too busy, management and staff are friendly and do their...

My friend and I were lucky enough to have spent the weekend at this beautiful hotel, celebrating my birthday. Thank you to the management for making this an unforgettable experience. We were made to feel so special with complimentary sparkling wine, an upgrade to a gorgeous suite with interleading rooms and a lounge/dinning area with stunning views of the beach,... More
