Southern Sun Dar es Salaam

Southern Sun - Dar es Salaam- Tanzania

Choose a solid, good, branded hotel that leads the way in terms of luxury accommodation, exceptional services and high-quality facilities and you get the Southern Sun Dar es Salaam hotel in Tanzania. 

Travel with Voyage2Africa to East Africa and make sure you spend a few days at this iconic brand of hotels that offers value for money and solid service to the Tanzania business and leisure travellers.

Find the Southern Sun on the ocean’s edge in Dar es Salaam in a tree-lined avenue with dazzling sea views and all the mod cons you need as a passenger in transit to the islands, the game reserves and the city pleasures of Tanzania.

Modern conference facilities and meeting rooms, high-tech equipment for business activities, a swimming pool and a gym for leisure hours and a choice of restaurants to please all palates. We love the Baraza restaurant serving up fresh seafood from Tanzanian waters, fresh tropical fruits picked in the country, grilled meat dishes and tantalising spices from Zanzibar. Sip local mountain-grown coffees and teas and ask your barman for an exotic cocktail in the lounge café overlooking the show kitchen or sun terrace.

Safari travellers will enjoy this cool respite from their game reserve adventures and make full use of the pool and gym, the fine wining and dining while business delegates will surely appreciate adaptable business rooms and facilities for up to 100 colleagues plus world-class catering services for those much-needed break-away sessions.

Luxury accommodation features large comfy beds, endless and pretty views of the historic Botanical Gardens in Dar, blackout curtains, air conditioning, a working desk, a bath and a shower, flat screen TV and a minibar. Relax in the quiet gardens in between tours and seminars.

An added plus is that this Southern Sun branded hotel is conveniently situated in the heart of Tanzania’s vibrant Dar es Salaam and within walking distance of the central business district. Take a tour into the interior and use this hotel as your base.
