Situated in the commercial centre of Tanzania’s former capital, the Southern Sun Hotel Dar es Salaam is right next door to the city’s botanical gardens and diplomatic offices and is perfectly located for international business travellers as well as foreign diplomats, visiting government officials and representatives of non-governmental organisations.
The ambience and décor of the Southern Sun Hotel Dar es Salaam are welcoming in nature. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with all the modern amenities one might need and options catering to the requirements of travellers either on the go or in need of quality rest and relaxation… 152 well-equipped bedrooms to choose from, including standard rooms with either double or queen-size beds, executive rooms and suites with king-size beds, and there are rooms for smokers and people in wheelchairs that can be booked by prior arrangement.
The well-appointed Kikao Conference Room of the Southern Sun Hotel Dar es Salaam can accommodate 20 to 25 people in banquet, boardroom, classroom, theatre and U-shape seating arrangements or 40 people standing in the case of a reception or product launch perhaps. Conference facilities include air-conditioning, adjustable lighting, telephone in the room, lectern, projectors and monitors, flip charts and tele-conferencing capability. And the business facilities and services are numerous too: wireless internet access, business centre, car hire (with or without chauffeur), secretarial service, travel agency, photo-copies and faxes, laminating and printing services, postal service, mobile phones and more.
To help you stay in shape or de-stress there’s a pool and a gym on the premises, whereas just down the road there are the facilities for a round of golf, a game of squash or tennis, as well as a spa. And when it’s time for a meal, the Southern Sun Dar es Salaam has two restaurants to choose from.
The Kivulini Restaurant at the Southern Sun Hotel Dar es Salaam offers the more exotic of the two dining experiences, with a view overlooking the swimming pool and botanical gardens. The Baraza Grill Café & Bar, on the other hand, presents a fusion mix of Swahili and Continental dishes.
When you’re in the mood for a night out you could contemplate the Las Vegas Casino just 2 kilometres away from the Southern Sun Hotel Dar es Salaam. And the daytime excursion options include: the GymKhana Club with various sporting facilities virtually next door, the National Museum in town, South Beach (4 kilometres away), the Msasani Yacht Club and water sports (10 kilometres away).
