Any time of year is fine for a visit except from January to March, when heavy rainfall in many areas can make some roads all but impassable, and when there’s a high risk of cyclones in the east and northeast. In general, the best time to travel in most areas is April and October/November. The coolest time to travel anywhere is during the dry season (May to October).
Average maximum temperatures vary from about 30°C in coastal areas (higher in summer) to around 25°C on the hauts plateaux. In Antananarivo and other highland areas, temperatures during winter can drop to 10°C and even lower during the night.
Relais des Plateaux is conveniently located close to Antananarivo’s international airport and offers simple yet comfortable accommodation for an overnight stopover.
Relais Des Plateaux is the perfect choice for an overnight stay for those who are arriving into Antananarivo late at night or who have an early flight the following day, being situated just 15 minutes’ drive from the airport.
The 46 rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious with en suite shower rooms, TV, complimentary WiFi and air conditioning and are just a short walk from the bar and restaurant which overlooks an outdoor swimming pool. There is also a fitness centre and spa where you can enjoy a revitalising treatment to help you recover from your travelling. Here you can easily while away an afternoon before hopping onto a plane for your next adventure in Madagascar.
