Sakatia Lodge is one of the best lodges I've ever stayed at! We stayed in the nature bungalows, which are gorgeous little huts under the trees and in the lush gardens. The food is amazing - in 12 nights we never had the same thing twice - and the staff and owners very involved, friendly and accessible.
The island doesn't have electricity, so rooms don't have aircon and there isn't a pool - something to take into consideration if you want to travel during the very hot season. Nosy Sakatia is a beautiful little island with wonderful snorkelling and animals practically on your doorstep.
I would highly recommend Sakatia Lodge to anyone wanting to visit an unspoilt piece of what is fast becoming a commercial holiday destination. The only thing I would recommend - and this has nothing to do with the lodge - is to avoid going to Nosy Komba. It's a tourist trap island where animals are kept in small pens for the tourists' enjoyment. It's a horrible petting zoo that shouldn't be supported at all. Instead, conservation and education efforts should be supported.
