Cape Town - A brand new Radisson Blu property has opened its doors in Maputo, Mozambique soon. 

The First Class Radisson Blu Hotel, Maputo will fall under the umbrella of Rezidor, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide and a member of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. 

The 154-room hotel is a great addition to the contemporary cityscape, enjoying a prominent location overlooking the Indian Ocean, within easy reach of Maputo International Airport and the vibrant downtown.

Maputo is the capital city of Mozambique, a flourishing south east African country bordered by the Indian Ocean, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and South Africa. It was discovered by Vasco da Gama in 1498 and colonised by Portugal in 1505. 

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Maputo is located near famous sights like the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Our Lady of Fatima, the Coconuts Entertainment Centre, the Polana Casino, the Natural History Museum and the Associação Núcleo de Arte, home to the studios of more than 100 artists, sculptors and ceramicists. 

Elegant and spacious, the hotel's 154 beautifully designed rooms and suites set a new level of contemporary style and comfort in Maputo. Guests enjoy a range of first-class amenities and Radisson Blu signature services such as free high speed internet access.

The sophisticated Filini Bar & Restaurant serves delicious Italian cuisine and wines. With its nice terrace, the airy restaurant is the perfect setting for a business lunch or a romantic dinner. The chic Oceano Bar is a lively place to catch up with friends; and the trendy Palmeira Lounge is an oasis of calm and the ideal spot for taking time out. And, to top it all off, the glamorous Pool Bar is Maputo's latest hot-spot destination.

Guests can relax in the hotel's sun tanning area or take a dip in the large outdoor swimming pool. They can also step up their work out routine in the hotel's fitness room, kitted out with the latest equipment. The Radisson Blu Hotel, Maputo is also ideal for events ranging from large conferences to board meetings: Facilities include three meeting rooms, a conference room spanning 252 square meters that can be divided into three, and a flexible pre-function area of 153 square meters.
