In the heart of Maputo, on one of the city’s most desirable avenues, between Sommerschield and Polana, the justly famous Hotel Polana is a cool and gracious haven that recalls the elegance and splendour of colonial times. Close to Maputo’s nerve centre – the international Embassies, the Presidency of the Republic, government Ministries and popular restaurants – and ten minutes away from the city centre and the Mavalane International airport, the Hotel Polana is a majestic building with a history stretching back many years, now lovingly restored to offer modern convenience hand in hand with the leisurely luxury and service of the colonial past. The Polana’s perfect location gives guests a panoramic view of the Bay of Maputo from virtually anywhere in the lush, landscaped gardens, the ideal place for a gentle stroll or a game of chess under the deep shade of the great rubber tree. The magnificent swimming-pool is inviting after a game of tennis or a tour down-town, a shimmering expanse of cool blue water dreaming in the sun. The Polana has everything to pamper and perk up the weary traveler in the Polana Gym, with its gymnasium and aerobics classes on site. Some of the Hotel’s “millennium musts” include a superb gym, stylish international and piquant local cuisine, a state of the art conference centre and banqueting suite, a full range of sporting activities, a vibrant entertainment schedule, an art gallery, a colourful selection of bars, exquisite rose gardens, lush tropical grounds and what must be one of the most panoramically luxuriant swimming pools in Africa.
