Beachfront Villas - Nosy Sakatia, Madagascar’s Perfume Island
There are two Beachfront Villas situated on the small island of Nosy Sakatia; just off Nosy Be. They operate in conjunction with Sakatia Lodge and are not actually available for self-catering. That said they do offer more privacy and luxury than the lodge itself with large, private verandahs, lush gardens and they are situated just a few metres from the beach itself.
Villa Ranomasy has three double, en suite bedrooms and is the more upmarket of the two. Air Conditioning in each bedroom (limited between 1700 and 0200) and 24 hour electricity set this villa apart from the rest of the lodge.
The second villa, Villa Tonga Soa, is a bit further away from the lodge itself and is more suited to families with young children. This villa enjoys 24 hour electricity, 3 bedrooms with one double, en suite main bedroom (and additional single if required), one double en-suite and one with two single beds - also en-suite.
There are fans in the bedrooms and the 'wrap around' private veranda affords each room plenty of outdoor space without interfering with each other.
Breakfast and dinner is taken at Sakatia Lodge (there is nowhere else nearby) at an additional €28per person daily. The lodge has a great snack menu for lunches, a really good little 'local' restaurant down the beach and plenty of places to eat on Nosy Be itself. Sakatia Lodge can arrange all transfers to Nosy Be, excursions, activities especially diving and fishing and have a wonderful bar where you can enjoy sundowners etc.
Snorkelling in front of the villas is remarkable and you may even be lucky enough to have the local wild lemurs pass by your villa in the evenings.
