It must have been somewhere around 2006 that Kuchawe became a Sunbird in stead of Le Meridien hotel. Having been there quite often before that, I feared that standards would have slipped since. Well, they did. But not very much. The only real issue is the maintenance of the (bath)rooms. Staying at Kuchawe Inn is still very enjoyable: the location is stunning, the building itself is worth the visit, the restaurant is OK (by Malawi standards).
The only real sting was in the winelist: prices easely double that of other (Sunbird!) hotels.
Try to arrive in the afternoon, have tea in the lovely garden, have drinks in the cosy bar, and during diner ask staff to light the fire in your room. Most likely you will enjoy your stay.More
