Located just five minutes away from Antananarivo’s Ivato International Airport, Le Relais des Plateaux is a small slice of luxury for those short overnight Tana stopovers. The French and Malagasy-inspired hotel is known as the “oasis at the gates of Antananarivo,” offering an assortment of rare Madagascar indulgences such as a relaxing swimming pool, a delicious restaurant menu, reliable air conditioning, and plenteous hot water.
Le Relais des Plateaux features 42 spacious and spotless rooms, each showcasing a combination of local tradition and international modernity in both design and approach. Enclosed around the pristine hotel gardens, the one-story accommodations are accented in rich reds, vibrant limes, and billowing whites to reflect the lush, colorful nature found just beyond the shared front porches. Guests at Le Relais des Plateaux benefit from an array of amenities the likes of which are seldom found throughout the island, including large four-poster beds, televisions, minibars, private contemporary bathrooms with showers and consistent hot water, and the ever-exciting air conditioning. These are welcoming, comfortable, and quiet rooms dedicated to providing a good night’s rest before and after long days of travel.
The highlight of Le Relais des Plateaux is without a doubt the inviting salt-water swimming pool and restaurant area. The restaurant, overlooking the swimming pool and gardens, is a surprising display of sophisticated cuisine created from local ingredients. The mornings bring with it a wide selection of fruits, pastries, cereals, and made-to-order omelets, while the afternoons lend themselves to casual poolside dining among the palm trees, a cold THB beer or hand squeezed fruit cocktail in hand. In the evening, enjoy such specialties as freshly prepared seafood, zebu, and foie gras, finishing it off with an a la carte offering of rich, local chocolate or a widely popular apple tartlet. No matter the time of day, the restaurant and pool Le Relais des Plateaux are the places for peaceful and relaxing moments and offer complimentary Internet access for any social or business needs.
Downtime can also be spent wandering around the interior gardens and park, left untouched so as to let the resident birds thrive in their natural habitat, or finding the perfect souvenir in the gift boutique, where a notable selection of handicrafts and spices come in multiple sizes and packages.Request Information
