An oasis amid the city centre at the Jardin d'Antanimena

In the heart of Antananarivo, the Jardin d'Antanimena is a typically Malagasy haven of rest, away from the urban bustle of the capital.

With its pink and orange walls and purple shutters, the old building oozes authenticity. Far from standardised resorts, this hotel is liked for its charm and city-centre location before anything else. The 10 bedrooms have been decorated in typically Malagasy fashion, gorgeous wooden floors and traditional furniture giving the premises a unique feel. Some even offer private terraces with panoramic views over the capital.
As soon as you arrive, you will be won over by the garden, in which the country's fauna and flora are well-represented. There, you will be able to have breakfast or dinner as you please. In that regard, try the La Table de Nanah restaurant's cuisine (the place was named after one of the hotel owners), especially the zebu-based specialities. All along your stay, the hotel staff will attend to all your needs, and massages are also available when you have to relax after a long day, away from the city's lively streets.
