Mozambique’s Nampula province to count 5 more hotels

18 April 2012

Five new hotel establishments are being built in the Mozambican cities of Nampula, Nacala-porto and the district of Mossuril, in projects involving more than US$50 million of Mozambican and Chinese capital, the spokesman of the provincial tourism department said in Nampula.

Leo Jamal told Maputo-based newspaper Notícias that the group comprises the Nacala Inn, Nacala Hotel and Hotel Horizonte in the city of Nacala-porto, the New Hotel in the provincial capital and the Sete Paus Lodge in the Mossuril district. They will be rated with from three to five stars.

When they open, Nampula province will count 3,262 hotel beds, versus the current 2,862, distributed in the cities of Nampula, Nacala-porto, Mozambique Island, Angoche and Mossuril, in a province that has 21 districts, four cities and one municipal town.

The province’s interior districts, where there are no beaches, have fewer hotels and restaurant establishments.

Statistics indicate that the various hotels and restaurants are annually visited by just over 80,000 foreign and national tourists. (macauhub)
