If diving is your passion and you couldn't imagine spending a single day of your holiday without getting your head under the water, this is the place for you. Ideally located on a heavenly beach, these small bungalows offer varying levels of comfort at varying prices. Prices can be twice as much depending on whether you have cold water or hot water. It's a shame they don't offer a mid-priced room with warm water!

    Location 3.0 /10

    The hotel is located on the small island of Sakatia, known as Orchid Island, to the north-east of Nosy Be. The two islands are separated by a roughly 800m stretch of sea, and a shuttle boat operates free of charge for guests staying at the hotel.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    Opened on 1st June 2006, this hotel is located right on the seafront. Offering two types of bedroom in the form of bungalows, the hotel is reminiscent of a small seaside village. The two large thatched huts, one for the bar with a very comfortable modern chic lounge area and one for the restaurant, are the two communal areas that are open to all. Another more modern and more spacious building welcomes diving fans. A wide choice of equipment is available and is regularly renewed according to the owner. Many paths around the hotel will lead you off to explore the island.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The bungalows are distributed over sloping ground. Some, such as the family bungalow with two bedrooms, are located right at the edge of the ocean, whereas others are accessible via some rather steep wooden steps. There are 4 large "ocean" bungalows for two people with hot water and 4 smaller ones known as "nature" bungalows to justify the fact that there is no hot water. In terms of decor, natural materials combined with brightly-coloured fabrics greatly enhance the charm of the accommodation. The beds are covered with a mosquito net, which is very useful near the sea, and there is a free-standing fan to fight the heat. Once again, simplicity, cleanliness, good taste and charm are the order of the day. A small bathroom with a stone shower and a round aluminium washbasin placed on a plank of wood is concealed behind a white curtain. All bungalows have a small terrace facing the sea with two wooden armchairs and a small light. This little area you can enjoy at any time of the day. The bungalows with hot water are almost twice as expensive, are more spacious, and have a bench seat as well as a bed, a larger cupboard and a separate toilet.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    There is also a large, thatched-type restaurant opening on to the beach and furnished with small wooden tables. Lunch consists of a choice of full meals, lighter dishes or snacks. In the evening, a single menu consisting of a starter, a fish or meat dish and a dessert is served. Dishes include zebu, lobster, shrimp, quiches, crepes, parfaits, crab, soups, etc. Dinner cost £15.80 when we stayed. A bar located next to the restaurant is open throughout the day. Be careful not to overdo the arranged rums!

    Beach 7.20 /10

    A large, pretty, white sandy beach lies at the foot of the hotel. Deckchairs and parasols are provided for guests' convenience.. At low tide the sea goes right out, but that's the principle behind any ocean.

    To know

    80% of the clientele is South African.
    The hotel works with the Sakatia Passion for guests who like fishing or want to hobie-cat.
    The hotel has a small garden where a few vegetables are grown during the rainy season
    There are many countryside walks to take around the hotel.
    The island of Sakatia has a few rules: You are not allowed to bring a dog along, bury someone, or do your washing on a Tuesday. (Do not try and find the connection between these three prohibitions, nor the reason behind them - that's just how it is!)

      Nature, sport, comfort and calm are the watchwords of this little hotel, which consists of bungalows in the middle of a luxuriant garden in front of an unspoilt beach. Nothing bothers you here (there are no children under 15), and you can do what you like when you like. Quad-biking and diving are the main activities on offer, but you will be happy whatever you like, provided you come with a convivial and relaxed attitude.
