Reviews

Our recent stay at this beautiful venue made us fall in love with this part of the world. The two owners Frank and Warren made our stay really something special. The whole vibe of the lodge is that of your home away from home. The lodge is well looked after and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The food was with-out exception of a high standard and more than enough. Every-one at the lodge was very friendly but we have to make mention of Derrick our daily host - he can not be called a waiter. When we were still thinking of asking, Derrick were ready to serve and pass a beer. Stay away from theoverpriced and a noisy Cape MacClear and make this little jewel of Africa your choise of residence at Lake Malawi. Last but mostly important, the lodge is well priced and above all safe to visit.

This was the end of our honeymoon tour of Africa and we couldn't have planned it better. Where do I start... the property is beautifully landscaped and picturesque, looking out onto a private beach and provided some rentable kayaks to go out on the lake. The food was consistently great - we had intended to eat out more but it was too good to miss. Our room was comfortable, spacious and well decorated and the hot shower was reliable (they installed solar panels to not rely on the local supply - VERY important in Africa!). It was all very reasonably priced. And what brought it all together was the amazing calm, pleasant atmosphere which seemed to be just naturally part of the charm here. The atmosphere was a combination of Warren and Frank's (owners) warm welcome, some amazing friends we made with fellow-travelers from NZ, Italy, South Africa; but none more-so than the TOP CLASS service and friendliness of Derek, the daily host.

couldn't recommend this place highly enough, the pictures do not do it justice! We stayed here for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The staff are extremely kind and helpful, the food was delicious and our room was very cosy and tastefully decorated! If you are looking for a relaxing escape on Lake Malawi with a beautiful sunrise and very cute rescue dogs, this is the perfect place!

Staff and owner extremely friendly and helpful . Good location, right on the lake. Simple but beautiful decoration and big bathroom! The lobby looks like your home’s living room! Beautiful garden to relax. The hotel gives you really a nice feeling!

Fantastic accommodation in a very nice, quiet and safe area. The staff and owner are very friendly. Delicious freshly made food, a very homey feel. Superb decor throughout the lodge. Almost every day some improvements are being made to the place as the owners are very serious and passionate about this place. Complimentary WiFi, breakfast and kayaks. There's a bar with various drinks which is always manned and a simple food menu through out the day. Definitely recommended A+

Had a fantastic stay here. The lodge has such a beautiful location, the rooms are really nice and clean, the place is well decorated, the food is awesome. You won't find better hosts than Warren and Frank, they really go beyond to make your stay perfect! The rest of the staff is also super friendly. I strongly recommend a stay here!

Awesome and tranquil location - just too beautiful. The team is extremely nice and helpful too. We had a very nice stay and would definitely go there again in future when we come back to Malawi.

Thanks to Ian and Lauren for recommending this place. Looks amazing and brand new, Frank is a fantastic chef and Warren takes care you have a great stay. A good place before entering or coming off the Ilala ship and to spend some days. Good hot showers!

Absolutely lovely spot on the water! My boyfriend and I arrived in the evening to a warm welcome by Warren and a wonderful and fresh dinner! Warren is a great host with very helpful recommendations for what to do. He also lent us the rowboats so we could paddle around in the lake. This is a quiet, peaceful, and well kept place with easy access to the town if you're taking public transport, and they have a safe parking area if you have a car. Highly highly recommend!
