Located just 5 kilometres from Antananarivo’s international airport, the welcoming Relais des Plateaux Hotel provides travellers with everything they need for a comfortable stopover. Accommodation is provided in 46 pleasant, modern rooms nestled amid a lovely shady park inhabited by a wide range of colourful birds. Choose from twin or double beds, or upgrade to a larger family room or luxury suite, the latter two which contain romantic four-poster beds.
The onsite restaurant – named after a royal bull – offers some of the finest cuisine in Antananarivo, inspired by European, Malagasy and Asian flavours. There is also a bar, which specialises in cocktails. For recreation, the Relais Des Plateaux Hotel boasts the city’s only heated outdoor saltwater pool. There is also a fitness room as well as a day spa with a sauna, Jacuzzi and hammam, where a wide range of wellness treatments are available.
From this property, the Royal Hill of Ambohimanga – a traditional fortified royal city and sacred burial site of former key monarchs – is about 26 kilometres northeast whilst the centre of Antananarivo, affectionately known as “Tana”, is approximately half an hour by road away.
