A visit to Likoma island is an absolute treasure for travellers who enjoy feeling the naturalness of Africa but like some home comforts and can afford them. It is a very romantic retreat for couples offering barefoot chic rooms and a healthy balance of tranquility and lots of active splashy fun in the alluring lake. It is also suitable for families and the family house appeared to be far away enough from the couples so as not to disturb. great spot for a small wedding or a getaway for a small group. Management by Michelle and Richard is of a relaxed and welcoming nature that is sensitive to guests needs and respectful of the need for privacy. Rooms are very well positioned for privacy. Snorkels masks and fins are provided in every room so you can adventure into the lake and meet the chichlids in all their pretty forms. Kayaks are available from the beach whenever you feel like a paddle and I really enjoyed the contrast of the freedom in Africa where you can be trusted to get on with doing your own thing having experienced the nanny state approach on other continents and the extra costs sometimes associated with any such activities. Kaya Mawa has a relaxed beach bar overlooking the paradise beach and outdoor lounge for evening chilling. Unfortunately as the weather was a bit unseasonal we did not experience their usual habit of dining under the stars but would imagine it to be sublime. The kitchen was lovely and accommodated a vegetarian preference very well. Its impressive how well people manage to produce such good standards with genuine logistical difficulties. We were able to access wifi from the office which was usefu for us. Highly recommend visiting Malawi and this magical place.
