Palissandre Hotel and Spa gets its name from Palissandre, a type of rosewood which abounds throughout the hotel, adding an elegant and polished feel to the rooms. It is located in the centre of Antananarivo, ideally placed to savour the sights of the 'Place of 1000 Warriors'. It is recognised as one of the finest establishments in the city and its Spa offers an array of treatments, along with free access to the Hammam, gymnasium and the swimming pool.
Accommodation consists of 46 airconditioned rooms, some with sweeping views of the city and its everyday hustle and bustle. Each room has an electronic safe, direct phone line, satellite TV, minibar, hairdryer and a well-appointed bathroom. There are also spacious apartments with a kitchenette so you can self-cater and a jacuzzi to soak in with your loved one. Not that you need to cook for yourself though - La Table des Hautes Terres provides top-class cuisine, enjoy hearty breakfasts and light lunches on the breezy terrace and try home-made rum at L'Amphore Bar.
From the rosewood that adorns the rooms to the decadent Spa centre, the Palissandre really does have that polished feel which sets it apart from most other hotels in Antananarivo. Its location could not be better, perched on the hillside right in the heart of the 'Place of 1000 Warriors'. Spoil yourself silly at the Spa with its range of treatments or work out at the gymnasium. The food is simply sublime and the home-made rum is sure to start a party. Those looking to chill out can lounge beside the swimming pool or bask in the bubbles of the jacuzzi!
