Highly rated by both Conde Nast and by Tatler, Kaya Mawa, meaning “maybe tomorrow” in the local dialect, is a luxury beach lodge situated on the edge of Lake Malawi on Likoma Island. From the construction of the lodge through to its staff and the way the lodge integrates within the local community, there is literally nowhere else like it.
Each of Kaya Mawa’s rooms and houses have been individually designed in partnership with a local textile workshop set up on the island to empower single mothers. Kaya Mawa’s staff are mostly from the neighbouring villages and have all been trained to a high standard, resulting in a luxurious lodge projecting a feeling of contemporary rustic but chic charm.
Kaya Mawa is the perfect lodge at which to unwind but if you are more active then there is plenty for you to do on the land, on the water and below it. The lodge offers its guests a Decleor equipped spa as well as a PADI dive centre providing sport diving and dive courses for those looking to experience the underwater world for the first time.
