The construction lasted 5 years mainly due to the difficulty of supplies and transport. Indeed, ensuring the supply of materials from Antananarivo to Sahasifotra was a more than perilous and extremely long exercise.
In June 2011, with her experience in tourism and solidarity, Hélène joins Maurizio in Sainte Marie. She was mainly in charge of customer relations and commercial follow-up.
In August 2011, the Riake Resort & Villa opened its doors!
The name “Riake Resort & Villa” was given by Maurizio who wanted his hotel project to be as complete as possible: a Reception with library and craft shop, a Bar (the Riake Loundge), a restaurant (the Riake Lunch), 8 bungalows, 1 Villa Comfort.
The term “Riake” means “Waves” in a Malagasy dialect.
Maurizio and Hélène started the project together. At present, Hélène is leaving for professional updates in the managerial field, following the evolution of the structure and its development from afar. She also contributes to the growth of the Riake with her precious advice.
Their ambition does not stop there: two Luxury Villas are currently under construction and will be able to accommodate up to six people each. A swimming pool and a tennis court are also planned to complete this structure.
