Hotel Calypso overview

This modern hotel is on a quiet road about 1km from the centre of Toamasina (also known as Tamatave), 3kms from the harbour and a 10 minute drive from the airport. This location coupled with the hotel's well equipped rooms and suites make it a convenient stopover en route to Ile Sainte Marie or the Pangalanes Canal.

The 69 rooms are arranged over four floors and are all en-suite and air conditioned. TV, IDD phone and free Wi-Fi help you keep in touch with the outside world. There are several categories of room, mainly differentiated by size, with suites having sitting areas. Rooms are light and have stylish contemporary decor. 

The hotel has an impressive range of recreational facilities including a large, heated indoor pool and relaxation area, sauna, spa treatment rooms and a fitness centre.
