About the property

With it's almost supernatural vibe, there is nowhere else on earth quite like Kaya Mawa. Hidden away on Likoma Island in Lake Malawi, at Kaya Mawa you will be transported into a world of simple pleasures. Embraced by the warmth and hospitality of the enchanting Malawian staff you will enjoy timeless luxury and only the best of modern conveniences. "Kaya Mawa" translates as "Maybe Tomorrow"... the Likoma Island version of mañana... without the urgency.

Each of Kaya's eleven rooms, and private villa, is unique and offers something very special. Serene and secret decks for sunbathing or romantic dinners; secluded lakeside chalets with private lounges. You may find yourself showering under the stars, taking a midnight dip in your private pool or simply walking hand-in-hand after moonlit supper on the beach.

If all the relaxation is too much, your days can be filled with everything from stand-up-paddle boarding, kayaking, kitesurfing, waterskiing, sailing and quad-biking; plus a full PADI dive school. And as the sun goes down on another perfect day enjoy a massage at the spa, nestled in the rocks on the lake, and have the last of your cares soothed away as you wonder to yourself "Shouldn't I be leaving?...maybe tomorrow"

- Rates are fully inclusive for accommodation, meals, transfers and some activities (snorkelling, paddle boarding, kayaks, mountain biking, sailing).

- Ndomo House has minimum policy of four full paying adults for three nights.

- Single Person Supplement 30% of per person / per night rate

Unwinding and relaxation a must!
