Radisson makes its debut in Madagascar 

In more feel-good news for African travel in 2022, Radisson Hotel Group is celebrating the recent launch of three new hotels in Madagascar.  

Speaking on behalf of the brand, Tim Cordon, Senior Area Vice President, Middle East & Africa, explained just how proud they are to expand their footprint across the Indian Ocean. 

“We believe our efforts will have a positive impact on the Madagascan economy,” he says. “Together with the wonderful team at Madagascar’s tourism board, we expect to attract more travellers to this beloved island.” 

Their three newly-developed properties, all within the historical city of Antananarivo, include the Radisson Blu Hotel, Radisson Hotel Antananarivo Waterfront and Radisson Serviced Apartments

Radisson Blu Hotel, Antananarivo Waterfront 

Centrally located in a private area within the Antananarivo waterfront, this hotel features 168 modern rooms and suites with waterfront views. Here, guests can embark on a culinary journey, with international dishes served at the on-site Larder restaurant or the Fire Lake Restaurant & Bar situated on the rooftop. 

Catering for meetings and events of all sizes, the hotel offers three spacious meeting rooms, a boardroom as well as a ballroom spanning over 260 square metres, accommodating up to 250 guests. Each of these five venues offers state-of-the-art technology to ensure successful corporate events for teams in 2022. 

Radisson Hotel Antananarivo Waterfront 

Also located in Antananarivo, travellers in 2022 can look forward to experiencing authentic Madagascan hospitality in this 30-room boutique hotel.  

Aside from those picturesque lake and garden views, guests can wind down in the most exquisite suites striking just the balance between the Radisson brand’s signature Scandinavian aesthetic and Madagascan architecture. The Tamboho Restaurant presents a varied menu of local and international dishes, and guests can also enjoy weekly live jazz performances at the indoor dining area. The outdoor garden lounge is also available for private meetings or social events, such as intimate weddings. 

Radisson Serviced Apartments Antananarivo City Center 

This hotel consists of 56 spacious and bright studios and apartments offering guests views of the surrounding hills. Perfect for business travellers, these units tick all the right boxes for extended stays.  

Being a home away from home, the in-room features include a kitchenette, minifridge and flatscreen TV. Guests can also stick to their daily routines, exercising at the on-site fitness room and grabbing their morning coffee at the SOHO Rooftop Lounge.  

François van Rens, Cluster General Manager of the three hotels, further describe the triple hotel launch as an honour to be introducing Madagascar to Radisson Hotel Group

“We have no doubt that our hotels will be top of mind for memorable stays, dining experiences, as well as meetings and events of all kinds,” he concludes.
