Radisson Hotel Group has entered the Madagascar market with the establishment of three properties.
The portfolio now includes the Radisson Blu Hotel Antananarivo Waterfront, the Radisson Hotel Antananarivo Waterfront, and the Radisson Serviced Apartments Antananarivo City Center.
Antananarivo is also known as “Analamanga” or “City of Thousand,” a reference to the thousand troops appointed by the king in the seventeenth century to protect the palace on the city’s tallest hill, known locally as “Rova.”
It is a picturesque and ancient city with palaces going back to the 19th century, such as the Rova of Antananarivo and the adjacent Andafiavaratra Palace, museums, colonial architecture, and bustling markets.
The Royal Hill of Ambohimanga, the country’s lone cultural UNESCO site and a significant site, is located just beyond the outskirts of northern Antananarivo.
It has the ruins of a fortified royal capital as well as a burial site, and it is still a popular pilgrimage destination for Madagascar’s people.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Antananarivo Waterfront is centrally positioned in a secluded area within the tree-lined waterfront, near to the recently developed premier business district, which is surrounded by numerous shops, entertainment, and enterprises.
The hotel’s 168 contemporary rooms and suites are flooded with natural light and overlook the enchanting city with waterfront views.
“We are thrilled to be opening our first three hotels in Madagascar, showcasing two of our fastest growing brands and a varied offering from hotel to serviced apartments,” said Tim Cordon, senior area vice president, Middle East & Africa, Radisson Hotel Group.
“We are proud to be expanding our presence across the Indian Ocean with a collection of hotels we truly believe will have a positive impact on the Madagascan economy and together with the wonderful team at Madagascar’s tourism board, we expect to attract more travellers to this beloved island.”
Guests staying at the Radisson Hotel Antananarivo Waterfront, which is also in Antananarivo, can expect to be treated with genuine Madagascan hospitality.
Natural elements, such as lovely timber features, are paired with Madagascan-inspired architecture in the hotel’s rooms and suites, which have gorgeous lake and garden views and reflect the Radisson brand’s unique Scandinavian elegance.
The Radisson Serviced Apartments Antananarivo City Centre’s 56 spacious and bright studios and apartments, filled with natural light and views of the surrounding hills, provide the ideal home-away-from-home for guests travelling for business, leisure, or extended stays.
A kitchenette, minifridge, and flatscreen TV are among the room’s useful amenities. The studios and flats were intended to provide the ultimate tranquillity, with a neutral colour scheme and modern accents.
