 Meliá Expands Presence in Africa

Meliá Hotels International will open its first property in Mozambique, Africa in Q2 2018. The new-build Meliá Maputo Hotel extends the company’s presence in Africa, where it now operates 11 hotels.

The Meliá Maputo Hotel will offer 171 rooms and suites, as well as facilities for meetings and events including two event rooms and an auditorium for up to 150 people. The hotel will also include a restaurant and a coffee bar.

Located in the centre of Maputo, the property is 10 minutes from the train station, 20 minutes from the international airport and 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.

Maputo is the cultural and business capital of Mozambique, a country of the southeast coast of Africa. 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 and is experiencing an upswing in tourism.

The agreement for this hotel is the result of the partnership between Meliá Hotels International and the Portuguese hotel group Hoti Hoteis.
