Kaya Mawa Luxury Resort, Malawi (Lake Malawi)

Lodges located on the sparsely populated Likoma Island

  • Kaya Mawa Luxury Resort, Malawi (Lake Malawi)

WHY WE LIKE IT

Bad phone coverage, barely internet connections available on the island. What an advantages! Because of the remote location of the island, it mostly is in his original condition and still intact like it’s supposed to be before the development of modern technology. Therefore we think it’s a good exit from modern day life for those who are looking for a place without the stress of work and home. 

HOTEL DESCRIPTION

Ever wondered how it is to have holiday on an island where cars are barely, and still isn’t really affected by modern society? If the answer on this question is yes, you should go to the Kaya Mawa Resort. Operating on the southern tip of the Likoma Island this luxurious resort has everything to offer for a unwinding and relaxing holiday.
For the concerned holidaymaker this is the chance to experience the feeling of being spoiled in the resort, but at the same time contributing the local economy. Perhaps some time for volunteering during the ‘on the land’ activites?
