Njaya Lodge - Nkhata Bay - Knacred Fantastic location! Excellent staff, and excellent service. This lodge, which once had fantastic facilities now needs a serious upgrade. 15 years ago the poor workmanship may have been excused as TIA, this now is no longer valid. The fittings are old and some look dangerous (fusebox in one room for example), doors don't... More

Spent a couple of days in Njaya and thoroughly enjoyed it. Gilbert and Dixon are amazing and do everything they can to ensure your trip is completely stress free. The lodge is ran by Malawians and you get the true feelings that you are part of the community. Food and bar areas are great and the views are amazing. The... More

Nkhata Bay has a lot of history,Paul and Clare back in the day had a dream-to build a little piece of Heaven to share with fellow travellers, many years later their dream comes true. I have visited Njaya many times and the smile not only on the guests faces but the loving staff says a lot!! Besides the good food,cold... More

We absolutely loved our experience at Njaya Lodge. It was our first time there and we stayed in two different chalets and the experience was beautiful! Our verandah looked out on to the lake and Paul (the owner) and his gf visiting from England and all the staff were absolutely the warmest and friendliest people ever. The food was actually... More

As this was my first trip to Malawi, I wasn't sure what to expect but staying at this beautiful beachside lodge made my virgin voyage exceptional. The exquisite setting of these lovely chalets built into the hillside overlooking the lake, was breathtaking alone. However, what I wasn't prepared for was the wonderful atmosphere at Njaya. I was fortunate enough to... More

Part of our tour which we unfortunately managed 2 stay only 1 nyt in the beautiful stone chalet just on the beach. waking up to the breaking of the waves along the rocks was just amazing. The best of all was the food which was reasonable and mouthwatering i would definately recommend this place to all. Grant n Gill

I travelled with a friend and when we arrived we were given the opportunity to see the rooms and then decide which to stay in. We had three nights in one of the stone rooms on the beach- it was lovely waking up and walking outside to be right on the ocean. There was a watchman there which allowed us... More

Just returned form almost 3 weeks in Malawi and our second stay at Njaya. It met our expectations yet again. Stayed in the Villa which was beautifully furnished and must have the best view in the area. The atmosphere of the place and the fabulous staff encouraged strangers to talk and become new friends. Highly recommend this place again.

I stayed here for four nights and if I ever get to Nkhata Bay again, I will choose Njaya. I had originally planned on staying at Maoyka but they were full. As soon as I arrived, the view from the restaurant terrace convinced me that I didn't care about my first choice anymore. I got a reasonably priced very nice... More
