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.

Marking the hotel group’s arrival in Madagascar, Radisson Hotels has announced that it will open three hotels in the area that are set to change the city skyline, and will give visitors access to these charming streets as well as the surrounding attractions showcasing the island’s remarkable fauna and flora. Situated between the city centre and the newer waterfront development, all three Radisson offerings will bring something different to the ‘Tana’ table.
