We visited Njaya Lodge in Nov / 20 and had an amazing time. The staff worked hard to make sure we had delicious meals and a relaxing time. Dixon was amazing! We love the private beach and our room was overlooking the ocean. The boat trip to feed the fish eagles and snorkel was a highlight. This was our second visit to Njaya Lodge and we can't wait to return. We have four kids and they had the time of their life.
My husband and I do charitable work in Nkhata Bay. The village is about a 45 minute drive, however we choose to stay at Njaya.The price is fair and makes the trip doable.The staff there have become family to us and take very good care of when we are there. I love the views and the dogs....I don't miss mine as much when there. Dixon, Gilbert, Kingston Cornice, The Captain's son and on and on have been nothing but helpful, curtious and a joy. They allow me to make popcorn and ice tea and I share it with all of them. This is my home away from home! My husband and I enjoy the food, however becuase we are ther for a good lenth of time we will eat out to change it up a bit. When it's time to leave it is so diffacult...they really our my family. Kind regards Dave and Diane Durniok
The room is nice and clean with a lovely view staff are friendly and helpful services are OK, Food is served was fine, we enjoyed it, we must thank all staff put all their efforts to keep the lodge well running.
This review is a little late..by about 22 years. I was a 45 yr old solo woman travelling around Malawi after having worked there for a year. I stayed 5 days at Njaya when the owners were back in Britain and an absolutely lovely couple were managing the place. Sorry to say I don't remember names very well but she was so good to me. I was invited by this couple a few times to join them on evening visits to other places. The staff were outstanding, and believe it or not I think Dixon was there then too and was exceptional..I always had a someone to play bao with and the food was fine. The bed was hard as the foamy was wearing thin but I loved my entire time there. I have thought of this place several times over the years and wondered how that couple temporarily managing the place made out.…
Make sure you book the Beach Cottage with lake view. Spent one night, wish we had stayed one more. Absolutely amazing view! Great service from Dixon. Meals were fresh. Definitely planning a longer stay.
