Nestled into a beautiful sheltered bay on the southern tip of the island, the lodge is situated right on the beach with stunning views over the channel and Nosy Be. Set amongst leafy tropical gardens and spectacular natural forest that is home to black lemurs and colourful chameleons, Sakatia is a tranquil and impeccably run lodge that is ideal for fishermen and non-fishermen alike.

Limited to only 28 people, accommodation consists of rustic but stylish ocean bungalows, nature bungalows, a family bungalow and a three bedroomed villa, all located around a spacious and cool open air bar and restaurant right on the sandy beach. There is an abundance of coral right out front that makes for excellent snorkelling in shallow, calm and clear water.

All rooms have fans, mozzie nets and en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold water.

For non-fishermen there are a number of daily excursions and things to do on both Sakatia and and Nosy Be islands, and for SCUBA diving enthusiasts Sakatia Lodge boasts a professional, fully equipped dive centre.

Sakatia is also perfectly situated to access the best of the local fishing grounds, as well as legendary Castor bank. It is also the ideal base from which to explore the remote northern and southern areas by live-a-board yacht. All our yacht trips depart from Sakatia Lodge.
