Located at the edge of Ranomafana National Park, Setam Lodge occupies a lovely location above the river, surrounded by fine views of mountains and rainforest.

The main building houses the bar and the restaurant, which has panoramic windows, however if the weather is fine lunch is often served outside on the terrace. Ten chalets, each of which has two bedrooms with functional en suite bathrooms and a small terrace with a view over the valley, are scattered across the hillside above the main building, connected by stone walkways and steep staircases.

The décor is simple with plain white walls, and pine from the local forest is used extensively in both the construction and furniture. Despite their simplicity, the rooms are equipped with all you might require, including mosquito nets and fans; electric heaters are provided for cold winter nights.
