Kaya Mawa £££££

  • Malawi
  • Beach and Island Escapes

Kaya Mawa is a beach safari lodge on Likoma, an isolated island covered with mango trees and ancient baobabs and surrounded by sandy beaches and rocky coves. With breathtaking views of the mountains and wilderness of Mozambique, Likoma remains almost untouched since its discovery by Scottish missionaries at the end of the 19th century. Rated by Condé Nast Magazine as one of the planet’s ten most romantic destinations, Kaya Mawa has seven rooms and four-family houses. All have en suite bathrooms, private terraces, and either a private plunge pool or direct access to the water. Each house faces the lake and has a large mahogany four-poster bed, a shower, and a sunken stone bathtub. There is a beach bar and a restaurant, both with lake views.
