We were suppose to be staying at Mayoka Resort but it was booked out, so as a last minute decision, we found this place. It was a little hard to find (we did arrive at night). The staff were absolutely amazing. Special mention must go to Gilbert and Mr Lubley Dubly, one of our waiters. They just made the stay that more enjoyable. WE had a 4 bed cabin down at the bottom by the lake which was clean and comfortable. I wouldnt recommend the bottom rooms if you have bad hips, knees etc as the climb up and down was quite arduous. In saying that, it only took a couple of minutes to walk up, so it wasn't like you were doing a hike! They were helpful at arranging some dug out canoes for us to have a go in (this was an extra cost). Be prepared, if you are ordering meals (which you need to as there is no self catering kitchen) it takes a couple of hours to get your meal, so if you want dinner at 7pm, we would go up to the restaurant and order and 5pm then grab some drinks and admire the lake views. Meals were huge! I would definately return here if I was to travel back to Nkhata Bay.
