About Crowne Plaza Monomotapa

Crowne Plaza Monomotapa The name of this elegant four-star hotel accurately reflects not only its heritage but also its status as a modern, world-class facility aimed at the businessman as well as the leisure seeker.

Standing proudly against the Harare skyline, its unique concave shape reflects all the splendour of the ancient Royal Munhumutapa Kingdom, and draws on that legendary African civilisation for its name, Monomotapa. Crowne Plaza epitomises the hotel’s global links and standards as part of the Intercontinental Hotels stable.

As befits a major landmark in Zimbabwe’s capital city, the combination of the trademark and African Sun welcome with world-class standards of products and service creates a haven for the business traveller or pleasure seeker right in the heart of the commercial and entertainment district.

Overlooking the city, its mix of twin rooms, king leisure rooms and luxurious suites enjoy panoramic views of Harare, right on the doorstep of the city’s Central Park and Gardens. Zimbabwe’s National Gallery is a five-minute walk away and the renowned Botanical Gardens a short 10-minute drive.

The newly-refurbished foyer with its rich African décor welcomes guests with the Gazebo Coffee Lounge adjacent to the reception area, and guest services staff ready to deal with all enquiries and requests. Appetites large and small are well catered for with the Parkview Brasserie’s light and airy ambience complementing its buffet-style breakfasts, lunches and dinners. A wide choice of traditional and Western dishes is guaranteed to satisfy guests whatever their tastes may be.

Restaurant Le Francais, also on the ground floor, caters for guests opting for full, more fomal table service and a more intimate atmosphere. From the pre-lunch or dinner drink in the adjoining cocktail bar to a fine cognac to complete a memorable dining experience, Le Francais staff provide food and service more akin to a top Washington or London restaurant than a busy hotel in the heart of Africa.

Harare’s sunshine hours rival those of Los Angeles and Crowne Plaza Monomotapa guests can take full advantage of fine all-year-round weather on the Pool Deck.
A sparkling pool provides the opportunity to exercise or just cool off. Attentive staff will serve poolside refreshments and the Aquarium Lounge Bar is right there for a quiet drink or something more adventurous.

Conference and banqueting facilities are a speciality of this hotel with its large and well-trained staff ready to arrange everything from a small business meeting to a conference or reception for 250 people in one of the seven suites dedicated to this service.

In keeping with African Sun’s tradition of welcoming people from all backgrounds and tastes, Crowne Plaza Monomotapa caters for smokers and non-smokers and guests with physical disabilities. Whether on business or pleasure, African Sun’s Harare flagship can tailor-make your stay to make it not only comfortable and relaxing, but unforgettable.
