After 10 days of hardcore trekking around the rainforests of mainland Madagascar, we were hugely excited about resting on the secluded island of Sakatia, and Sakatia Lodge. We were not disappointed at all. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, and we relaxed instantly. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and will go to great lengths to assist you in planning your day, arrange transport, find somewhere to have lunch etc. They were not overbearing in anyway. The waiting staff are very polite and looked genuinely happy, which all contributes to the laid back, holiday atmosphere. The private beach is beautiful, and there is a house reef which is home to many beautiful tropical fish. We took a kayak around the island, visited other secluded beaches and saw three huge green turtles. We also saw dolphins one morning. Although we didn't dive, the facilities looked excellent. Snorkel hire was free for guests. The rooms are comfortable,tasteful and clean. The food is exceptional, and represents excellent value for money. It is also very easy to stay at the Lodge as they except visa, euros and dollars, as well as the local currency. Highly recommended.
