This is a simple hotel with bungalow rooms set within pretty gardens. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, and the cooking delicious! The primary benefit of Setam, however, is the location, which is ideal for visits to Ranomafana National Park.


Setam is a small complex that centers on a main lodge where the reception, bar, outside terrace and dining room can be found. The accommodation, in bungalows set along the hillside and facing the forest, is separate to the main lodge. The rooms are large, airy and furnished in a clean, simple style. They feature electric fans rather than AC and a small verandah at the front.

A continental breakfast is served with fresh juice, bread, pastries and hot drinks. Lunch can be enjoyed on the terrace when the weather permits. The dinner menu changes daily.
