  The Radisson Blu Okoume Palace Hotel, Libreville boasts a scenic  location by the Atlantic Ocean, providing quick beach access and gorgeous  views. Conveniently situated on the Boulevard de Nice, this hotel puts guests  near city attractions and the airport, which is just 2 kilometers away.

  “The opening of the Radisson Blu Okoume Palace Hotel, Libreville further  cements our leading position in Africa and gives us the opportunity to  introduce the iconic Radisson Blu brand to a new country. We are proudly  operating a Park Inn by Radisson in Libreville since December 2014. The new  Radisson Blu opening takes our Africa portfolio to 26 hotels in operation, with  additional 28 hotels under development,” said Marc Descrozaille, Area Vice President  sub-Saharan Africa, for The Rezidor Hotel Group.

  The hotel features 330 rooms with designer furnishings and convenient  elements like a mini bar and 24-hour room service. Two convenient dining  options and two stylish bars include Restaurant Olatano which serves generous breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets,  as well as Restaurant Amaya which  offers upscale a-la-carte dining with a global flavor. Conveniently situated in  the hotel lobby, the Wai Bar is a  popular spot for locals and hotel guests. The modern atmosphere features bold  colors and creative lighting with a beachfront setting. Guests can also opt for  the more casual Pool Bar for drinks or snacks throughout the day.

  The meeting rooms in Libreville encompass versatile design able to  accommodate small groups of 10-80 delegates or a lavish gala for 700 guests.  Upscale conference facilities come furnished with state-of-the-art technology and  our signature Brain Box and Brain Food offer. Meeting hosts may also  utilize the assistance of dedicated event planners to assist with organization  and details like catering and decorations. The hotel also provides a  fully-equipped fitness center with cardiovascular machines, weights, and  relaxation facilities as well as access to the lap pool and kid’s pool. An  infinity pool is due to be added in early 2016.
