Onomo Hotels has opened a new hotel in Maputo, Mozambique, bringing up its network in Southern Africa to seven hotels, with five in South Africa and one in Rwanda. "The opening of a new hotel in Maputo confirms our desire to support Africa's development. We have succeeded to consolidate a strong network in West Africa, it is time for the group to pursue its development in the Southern part of the continent.
"Our choice to set up in this country is motivated by the positive trend of the Mozambican economy and the changes in society's lifestyles. The country presents a great opportunity we decided to take", said Cedric Guilleminot, CEO of Onomo Hotels Group.
With a population of about 23 million, Mozambique has experienced a period of political and social stability that has fostered a good economic performance. The country's economy has shown increasing growth in recent years, driven by a number of high value-added sectors such as energy and new technologies.
A new hotel experience
Onomo Hotel Maputo, which officially opened on 1 December, is a subtle blend of audacity, contemporary art and African culture; a contemporary hotel with a casual-chic style.
The hotel is nestled on Avenida 25 de Setembro, in the heart of downtown Maputo, the city’s historic and business center. Nearby are the ancient fortress, the tram station, the "Casa Amarela" (Yellow House), which has maintained its original Indo-Portuguese architecture, and the central market.
Nearby are also the JAT Business District, Maputo City Hall, Independence Square, the Supreme Court, the Tunduru Botanical Garden and the Sports Pavilion. All this, combined with its location, is only 25 minutes from the airport.
With its 165 equipped rooms, the hotel is one of the largest in the city. Its bright colours and urban trendy decoration, with local touches, offer a refreshing and energetic environment for work, entertainment and dining, with its rooftop and infinity pool completing the hotel's experience.
The restaurants of Onomo hotels are open to all, to meet with friends or colleagues for a meal or original cocktails and tapas with Afro-fusion flavours, honouring local products. Local and international specialities are served side-by-side, with three main features: freshness, seasonality and creativity.
