Radisson Hotel Group (www.RadissonHotels.com) is proud to announce its entry into Madagascar with the opening of three hotels: Radisson Blu Hotel, Antananarivo Waterfront, Radisson Hotel Antananarivo Waterfront and Radisson Serviced Apartments Antananarivo City Center.
Antananarivo, is also known as “Analamanga” or the “City of Thousand” referring to the thousand soldiers appointed in the 17th century by the King Andrianjaka, to protect the palace locally known as “Rova”, on the highest hill of the city. Explore the charming streets and visit the surrounding attractions such as Parc de Tsarasaotra and the Lemur’s Park to witness the island’s remarkable fauna and flora, including Madagascar’s most beloved animal, the lemur. Discover the pedestrian Haute-Ville, a quiet hilltop village famous for the architecture of its two-story brick homes, dating back to the 19th century.
With its palaces such as the Rova of Antananarivo dating back to the 19th century and the nearby Andafiavaratra Palace, museums, colonial-architecture, and bustling markets, Antananarivo is a charming and historical city. Located just beyond the outskirts of northern Antananarivo lies the Royal Hill of Ambohimanga, the country’s only cultural UNESCO site and a place of great significance. It includes the ruins of a fortified royal city as well as a burial site, and it remains an important place of pilgrimage for the people of Madagascar.
