We stayed in one of the very comfortable thatched cottages, which had a very comfortable bed and enormous shower. The rest of the family stayed in the dormitory, which was clean and spacious. The food was excellent, one night we had the most perfect beef Wellington and every Wednesday is Pizza Night with the most amazing pizzas from a wood...

I have stayed here a few times now and each time I love it just as much. On the last occasion we stayed in the dorm on the first night, and then camped the second night as part of our travelling around Malawi. The owners Chris & Sandi are always so welcoming and friendly, attentive and fantastic hosts. The staff...

Like the reviews before us, we cannot praise both the location and the warmth and friendliness of Sandi and Chris and their staff enough. We were able to relax and wind down before travelling around Malawi and then we stayed a few more nights to wind down again before our trip home. Beach was quiet and beautiful, food was lovely...

From the moment I arrived, Sandi & Chris made me feel like an old friend on a visit - totally relaxing! They have made such a peaceful spot, where the rooms blend in to the location. There's a beautiful beach, an area that they've turned into protected wetland where a plethora of birds collect and display themselves below the most...

I spent one week at Ngala Beach Lodge over christmas. It was a wonderful relaxing holiday. Sandi and Chris are great hosts and the staff are friendly and helpful.
