Built in 2006, located on the Islet of Nosy Sakatia, Sakatia Lodge is beautiful beach lodge.
Consisting of a shared area, 11 rooms and a fully equipped dive centre, Sakatia Lodge has a look and feel of a classic barefoot beach destination – somewhere to kick back with a cocktail under the shade of the palm tree, and is designed with a rustic style in mind, using local Malagasy wood for each bungalow and thatched roofs.
Food and service
The service at Sakatia Lodge is warm, friendly and extremely helpful. Food is sourced locally and the menu changes daily depending on the day’s catch and seasonal availability. Dinner is a three-course affair, with the option of a home-distilled rum as a digestive between courses for the brave. The bar is set on the beach and serves international drinks as well as cocktails made from the famous local Dzama rum, which is only sold on Madagascar. Wi-Fi is available in every room at the lodge. A laundry service is also available.
