Escape to the idyllic setting of Kaya Mawa Lodge located on Likoma Island, Malawi. Surrounded by rock, glorious soft sand beach and the shimmering Lake Malawi's clear waters, the lodge was entirely hand constructed in partnership with the local community.

Accommodation at Kaya Mawa Lodge consists of:

The lodge camp is set into a granite headland enveloped by ancient Baobab and Mango trees and comprises of 10 stone / teak-framed thatched cottages which include 7 premier chalets, 2 family chalets and a secluded honeymoon cottage. The stunning lodgings oozes an unbelievable ambiance with sumptuous mahogany four-poster beds draped in luxuriant netting, a decadent sunken stone tub offering astounding lake views, and private verandas. Take the boat or stroll along the long wooden suspension bridge leading to the private honeymoon cottage beautifully tucked away into the rock landscape, truly an exceptional love nest.

Take a flight of gastronomic delight as Kaya Mawa Lodge tantalizes your taste buds with an array of delectable eclectic dishes. Romance and mystery is added to the dining event as a different location is set up each night, might it be on the marvellous wooden deck overlooking the bay or on the beach, dining is a special occasion. Laze around the stunning rock swimming pool, order sundowners from the bar and chill whilst taking delight in the awesome sunsets.

Although Likoma Island's natural beauty is an adventure in itself, Kaya Mawa Lodge offer abounding leisure activities; from swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving the crystal clear waters to strolling, walking and biking around the island, it is pure delight. Interact with the friendly locals, browse the lively market and visit the impressive cathedral. Sail around the island in the wooden boat, go on a fishing excursion, or partake in the myriad of water sports on offer. There is no doubt that Kaya Mawa Lodge is exceptional and unique, a place where you can sink into blissful relaxation mode whilst nature pleasures your every sense.

This is literally Paradise out of water!! Come here and you'll not believe you are on planet earth. This place is like you are on another planet. You can visit as family, Solo or whatever but thus place just looks romantic. Those who'd like to have a honeymoon to remember from anywhere in the world, come to this Island. The Likoma Island on Lake Malawi. Unreal!!! Everything about this place is unreal!!!

After reading the reviews I was excited and Kaya Mawa, Michelle and team did not disappoint. A warm welcome, telling is this is a place to stop and relax and it really was. Our room took my breath away.... Msweka - right on the water with it's own private jetty direct into the lake, which laps like the sea. The room is built around a boulder and you can see the water whilst lying in bed! When you shower your are serenaded by the weaver birds busy building their nests to attract the ladies later! The sun sets directly in front of the room (and from the beach), perfect for a sundowner, which they will bring to your room at a time you like. The whole ethos is natural and recycled and puts back into the community - not a plastic bottle in sight, furnishings made from natural materials, created in the workshop they have set up creating jobs and purpose for the locals. The food is delicious (thank you Richard!) - each day we awaited a treat.... dinner is on the beach under the stars with lanterns scattered around and on our last night on direct on the sand with blankets and cushions - the water lapping before us. There is a fridge in the room and they couldn't do more for us! Michelle is an amazing host - her mission was to make it all perfect and she really did, along with her team! All in all a really special place if you want to treat yourself!..... even the flight back in the 6 man plane was an adventure in itself! Thank you.... Natalie & Stu

This is one of the most beautiful places in Malawi. Stunning location and scenic views , beautiful rooms, delicious food and the best hospitality.

All i can say is having been to the top places in Malawi I was thinking how much more better would Kaya Mawa be ?

The moment I set foot on the island then the lodge I knew it is something special and unique. No other beach property or lodge can match the excellence of Kaya Mawa it is truly a luxurious place with lot of facilities considering its on an island.

The best part of my trip is that the management and staff are so special and they run it with so much passion. Michelle is a professional, kind and very friendly manager who is so excellent at her job I have no words for her . She made the whole trip special for my wife on her birthday and did some unbelievable things to make it so memorable.

Thank you very much to Michelle and Richard too who is a commendable chef ! He can make for you pretty much anything and present it master chef style - delicious gourmet food and desserts on the beach.

All I can say is Kaya Mawa deserves all the awards they have received and we’re lucky to have such a place in Malawi. Not once did I feel any of the ground staff pull a face or say something negative - they were always glad to help.

I commend the owners, management and all staff for being part of a competent team who works tirelessly to give us guests the best time of their life. You are the best in Malawi and if anyone is thinking of traveling to Kaya Mawa then don’t think twice !! You will love it
