We recently were lucky enough to spend time at Sakatia Lodge.... and what an awesome experience. From the time of arrival on the beach and the warm welcome from Isabelle and the staff, the entire stay was exceptional. Isabell,Jose and the entire team made our stay memorable. The accommodation was spotless and beautifully decorated, the dining and bar area really welcoming. Isabelle prepared one of the most amazing creations of crayfish, langoustines and prawns I have ever experienced and Jose entertained us with hilarious stories. Can’t wait to return.

The diving experience was amazing. They had everything sorted and available for us. The food was great (breakfast and dinner was included in our accommodation. The rooms were clean and comfortable and provided the perfect holiday feel. Our villa was right on the beach and we were merely a few steps away from the water!

We had a mango bungalow (there was nothing else available) and WOW it was unbearably hot! There is no aircon, just one fan which doesn't even start to cut through the heat, and the power is off from 2am to 9.30am, so expect to wake up at 2.30am bathed in sweat. These rooms store up heat, and even with all the shutters wide open (which isn't ideal since some windows don't have mosquito netting and the sun rises early) they stay significantly hotter than outside temperatures. Absolutely do not stay in one of these, it was awful. Also there's no door to the bathroom, just a small cloth. For the rest - the staff is nice, the food is good (great vegetarian food), although there's no choice, they just ask you what you don't like at check in and you are surprised for dinner each night. The bar has some atmosphere during the day, but stops serving at 9.30pm, so there's nothing to do at night. We found it slightly short of sunloungers, and a lot of them were under trees, meaning you have a fry in deet or be eaten alive by bugs trade-off to make. The snorkelling with turtles is just in front of the hotel (swim out, walk along the side, or get dropped off on the way back from a boat trip), and they are huge! Don't miss this. The dive equipment is in good condition, and the boat rides aren't too long. The lady running the dive centre can be rather rude / unapproachable to try to organise anything with, although she is extremely good in an instructor / guide setting. Aim to talk to one of the other instructors! Also the fluro diving is amazing, give it a try.

Our Madiro bungalow was right on the beach and we were entertained by black lemurs in the adjacent forest on our first evening. We could lie in bed listening to the waves. In front of the lodge is a turtle reserve and we never swam without seeing at least one green turtle. Jose and his team are very friendly and attentive. Dinner in the evening was a set 3 courses which never disappointed and lunch could be ordered from an extensive 'snack menu'. We really enjoyed the cocktails. The service was outstanding. Mentioning we were going for a walk to watch the sun set, our departure was delayed while we were kitted out with a cool box, bottle of wine and glasses! Every evening our room was prepared with mosquito nets and a mosquito coil was lit. Our laundry was done for us and returned sparkling and ironed for a reasonable price. We dived on 4 days and it was wonderful. We were very well looked after by Masha. Emma, Tim, Jose and the team. The dive centre was very professional and the diving relaxed with a range of lovely nearby dive sites. The equipment was of high quality and everything was magically fitted, carried and cleaned for us. All we had to do was checks before dropping in and looking at the fish! Between dives we returned for coffee while the tanks were changed for us. We snorkelled with whale sharks on our way to the dive sites. We enjoyed a 3 hour guided nature walk which gave an insight into local lifeapart from this we didn't leave the lodge- Why leave paradise?

We spent one week here, snorkelling, diving and relaxing and just loved it all... we could have stayed longer. We booked a basic chalet type room with a large bed, storage facilities, toilet and shower. Built from stone, timber and palm the rooms go for a traditional natural style with no glass etc. Basically little rays of sunshine leak into the room during the warm days while the sounds at night really make the holiday - particularly from the resident lemurs. There are no room safes, security is not an issue here (doors etc. are rarely locked) and everything is perfectly safe. Wi-fi is available to each room but limited to 500mb ( more than enough if you really need it). There is a large bar, dining area, dive shop, gift shop and massage room manned by friendly and helpful staff. Meals must be pre-booked and the food was always very good. The hotel does it’s best to accommodate differing tastes and diets but it does sometimes cause (minor) issues as this is an island with limited foodstuffs and electricity (no power is available to rooms for a few hours during darkness and midday). On one occasion we really had to negotiate meal choices/times to avoid clashes over activities and meal times but to the lodges credit they did facilitate our requests - but they can only go so far! Activity wise, Emma & Tim are great dive guides and the ‘fluro’ dives were a great experience, there is a turtle sanctuary nearby overseen by Mascha who gave an interesting talk on her worthy project - we also got to see many large turtles. Boat trips are available and we got to snorkel with whale sharks, whales, rays & dolphins. Finally, the weather was awesome and the water really warm, we really enjoyed Sakatia and would love to return.
