After two years of complete restoration, this 1930’s townhouse has been reborn as the Lokanga Boutique Hotel. A genuine traditional Malagasy House, all in red bricks, with a balcony offering breathtaking views over the city. To recreate the charm of this past era, the charming hotel is entirely furnished with antiques, family souvenirs, old prints and photographs. Lokanga is centrally located, in the heart of an historical area, perched on the royal hill of Antananarivo, a few steps from the Queen’s Palace. Take a stroll in this romantic neighbourhood of cobbled streets to admire the ancient houses with nice red bricks, some of which date from 1800’s, visit the Museum, or the Royal Courthouse. The business areas of Antaninarenina and Analakely are only 5 minutes by car. Lokanga Boutique Hotel house faces the west and offers a 180° panoramic view of Anosy Lake, Mahamasina, Tanjombato.
The West Indies Room gets its name from its saffron and spicy colours because Madagascar was indeed on the route to India. It features a cast-iron bed, an ancient Indian cupboard and African framing. It has direct access to the terrace, overlooking the city. The tadelakt bathroom has a shower.
Each of the suites featured at Lokanga Boutique Hotel are designed to recall the early twentieth century. Charming antique décor and family souvenirs of the Baroque Suite, the Purple Colonial Room, The English Room, Rose’s Room, and the Explorator’s Room will make you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time to the French colonial era in each of these cozy suites. Fully furnished with either a double bed or two single beds (The Explorator’s Room), the rooms each come equipped with an antique bathtub or a shower (The Purple Colonial Room) and with terrace access featuring views of the city.
After a day in the bustle of Antananarivo, you can relax on the terrace with a cup of tea and homemade cookies or a sundowner whilst enjoying the breathtaking view out over the city and the distant hills. The Lokanga’s special at sunset indulges you with foie gras on toast with a glass of white wine. You can also enjoy a cosy evening by the fire in the drawing room. A full buffet breakfast, a Malagasy lunch and a European refined 3 course menu for dinner is made available daily.
