What you’ll discover at Likoma Island in Lake Malawi won’t just be romantic settings, crystal waters, and stunning views of the mountains of Mozambique, you’ll find big, beautiful smiles everywhere you turn. Kaya Mawa was hand built by the local and neighbouring village workers into stone and teak-framed thatched cottages within the granite headland. Each of the 11 rooms faces the lake with mahogany four-poster bed, shower and sunken stone bathtub. Every part of this luxurious stay is catered to comfort and gives back to its local community.

Set among fine golden sand, mango trees and ancient baobabs, the Kaya Mawa reaps the spoils of a timeless seaside location. Relaxation is a key activity here, but not the only one. There are endless ways to make the most of this water wonderland with water-skiing, kayaking, sailing, fishing and fantastic diving to see the famed lake’s plethora of fresh water fish species – more than any other lake in the world.
Each room is individually designed in partnership with Katundu Textiles, a workshop set up on the island to empower single mothers. All the workforce come from the neighbouring villages and have been trained on site. The result – a uniquely stunning lodge with a feeling of contemporary rustic whilst ultimately chic.
