Unsurpassed customer focus 24/7 while all our needs and wants were catered for always with a smile on the face. Great food, beautiful environment and many exciting activities to participate in. Superb snorkelling. Thank you Jacques and your team for a memorable holiday.

You arrive in your little corner of paradise by walking off the end of a pirogue through shallow, clear warm water onto a sandy beach while the staff carry your luggage on their shoulders. After 10 days of touring, pot-holed roads (at the best) and 4x4s you deserve this! Be aware that some of the rooms are up steepish stone steps behind the main building and as one of our group couldn't cope with this we were quickly given new beachside accommodation. Imagine this: bedroom doors permanently open to the terrace which was 6 steps from the sand and a few more to the sea (when the tide is in). Cushioned sun beds ready for you and when you stand up to move because it is too hot a groundsman runs over and wheels it under the trees for you. As we had come to expect, there was no menu but an enquiry if there was anything you didn't eat; the food was sourced locally, was fresh and organic and delicious, a lot of freshly caught fish and seafood was evident. An open lounge area with a well-stocked bar was the main meeting area.
Rooms and bathrooms were good, mozzie nets, AC, floor fan, wardrobes, bathroom toiletries and a decent shower.
The tide goes out for miles so if you want a swim you need to plan for hightide, 8 am is a great time then go straight to breakfast. My friends thoroughly enjoyed being taken to the reef to snorkel and all the gear is there to borrow as well as advice given on use of sun block etc.
This is a truly lovely place to rest and relax, leave your shoes and watch in your suitcase for a few days!

Very nice resort, good diving (whale shark!), 6 months later still thinking about the great time we had here. Lemurs were visiting us every night. The food was excellent! The staff is very friendly. Location is beautiful!

Getting there wasn't easy but apparently it is now possible to get there without flying to Tana first.

Two flights, a 45 min car ride and a short boat trip and we were in paradise. The water is clear and warm and host to the best snorkelling sites we have ever experienced. The staff were great and attentive, always checking in with us without being obtrusive with lots of helpful suggestions as to what to do in the area.

The food, mostly grown or caught on the island was delicious. The rooms are simple and adequate. Drainage on the shower wasn't great. The island is unspoilt, magnificent, tranquil.

The main islands are as one would expect: rural, basic.

Madagascar is not for everyone, but we loved it and will returning soon.

Check out Sakatia's Facebook page for some pics of the area.

We stayed in the three bedroom villa with our own huge balcony less than 10 metres from the beach. A mini bar, air con during the night and meals to die for. We booked with MadagasCaT Charters & Travel and will not hesitate to do this trip again. Thanks to Jose, Jacques and Isabelle for superb 5 star service for 3 star prices.

Room Tip: The villa is right on the beach and ideal for a group of four or six people; whilst the Oceans and Natures up on the hill affording a cool breeze.
