Enjoy a luxury African island holiday in Lake Malawi

Located on Likoma island in Lake Malawi, the luxury resort Kaya Mawa provides guests with an African island getaway. Surrounded by leafy greenery, stunning views, and a beautiful secluded beach, Kaya Mawa is tucked away in one of the most beautiful places Africa has on offer. 

Go scuba diving and snorkelling in the lake, try your hand at kite surfing, kayaking, water skiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding, spend some time fishing with the locals or just relax on the beautiful beach. Guests can also explore the island on foot; look out for the cathedral, the market, and the many community projects. Mountain biking and quad biking are also available and are both great ways to explore the island. 

Choose between Standard Rooms, Premium Rooms, Houses and Family Houses. All the accommodation options have stunning views of the lake, beautiful bathrooms, and plenty of space. Treat yourself to facials, massages and exfoliations at the spa, watch the spectacular sunset at the bar only a few meters from the water, enjoy breakfast and lunch at the restaurant and dinners wherever you please.
