I'd like to start my review by telling you what kind of people my wife and I are, because I find that it helps you decide whether you can trust the review or not.
We're in out mid-twenties, I'm a freelance web designer and my wife is a optician so we've got more cash than some of our friends but are by no means loaded! We both love travel, and especially love 'off the beaten track' type places. We often spend most our holiday budgets on just getting to places and then stay in hostels etc. but this being our honeymoon we fancied some luxury.
We both love africa and went on to stay in the Seychelles for 2 weeks after Kaya Mawa... and what can I say..... Kaya Mawa blew the Seychelles out of the (crystal clear, fresh) water!!!
Likoma island is pretty much the most beautiful place in the world as far as I'm concerned and Kaya Mawa is the perfect accommodation. Granite bath tubs, private jetties and hand crafted chalets are the order of the day and not soulless white walls and it is all the better for it.
The water is warm and clear and full of fish (better snorkeling than the Seychelles) and the beaches are beautiful too.
The service was top quality, everyone was so friendly and approachable. Great bar, good wine.. my only slight reservation about the whole place was that the food wasn't as fresh and fishy as I had hoped but it was explained to me that a lot of the produce had to be imported in at great cost, so bearing that in mind they did a great job with what they had.
Take a boat tour around the island, it's a great way to see most things in a day and then just relax relax relax.
I'm actually getting depressed writing this review that I'm not there right now!!
