We have just returned from an unforgetable visit to Sakatia Lodge. Our room- an Ocean View room, was great. Comfortable beds and a fan, beautiful local cut- out hand made cotton curtains in front of windows and doors. ( I loved them so much I took a taxi to Hell vile to buy some from the market) Also bought spices- vanilla, peppercorns, saffron, cinnamon, star annis and nutmeg from the food market. While you are there visit the Maki T-shirt shop and have a Three Horses Beer from the pub next to the Maki Shop. And then you need not spend any more time in the hustle and bustle, because Sakatia can't be beaten for tranquility, good food and very good diving! The food is very special, Try the smoked fish platter for lunch and dinners range from a buffet of local dishes to crayfish and prawn platters! We could not wait to see what was on the menu for our dinners and we were never disappointed. The diving was superb- good variety - from a wreck to muck diving where we spotted the pygmy pipe horse...... we saw dolphins and even a whale. Very professional Dive Masters Jacques and "D" made sure everybody had a good and safe diving experience. Good snorkeling around Sacred Mountain. The staff at the resort also needs to be singled out as they are very friendly and honest, we did not need to lock anything away. The only negative aspect in our whole experience was travelling on Air Madagascar! They change their time tables, re- route flights, do not load half a planes luggage, what a disaster!
