The views, views, views! Utterly breathtaking - coupled with the service I received from the staff who were very attentive to all my needs. Myself and my girlfriend had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend! Really enjoyed, already planning to visit Malawi again next year due to the experience we had. Really down to earth owner who gave us... More

I really don't understand how they justify charging 60$ for a room. The rooms are small and of average quality and the restaurant is actually quite bad, especially given the prices. Also the name claims it is a beach lodge but although it is almost on the beach, there is no lounge area and there are no reclining seats available.... More

It's a long dirt road to this spot on the beach, but nice place with relaxed vibe. Still got some hitches (bugs and smells), but folks seem to be working hard to improve the place. Very nice folks, very accommodating, very pleasant. Good security, great views.

This hotel was great! The staff was exceptional. Davis, the owner was extremely accommodating as were Felix and Blessing! A beautiful setting and very comfortable accommodations. We had a group of 12 who stayed here from the US, we were extremely happy with our experience!

The hotel sits on the West shore of Lake Malawi. The water is clear and the sand is very soft. It has black volcanic look once on your skin. The views are great and the hotel staff is ready at your request. The rooms are very simple and really only serve a purpose for sleeping and cleaning. We did have... More

Improve on yo food. Breakfast wz terrible same things everyday Staff wz paying more attention to the owner and his family more than guests. Even the limited parking space wz taken up by Mpasta cars. Dining used as a shortcut to the beach by non residents.

The Manager is a lovely guy and really helpful too. The Lodge overlooks a beautiful part of Senga bay beach and there are gorgeous views each morning of the sun rising over the Beach/Lake /Sea. A bottle of beer is approx. 80 pence - breakfasts and evening meals are good which was important for us as we were on a... More

I stayed at this hotel whilst doing some voluntary work in nearby Salima. The hotel's setting is wonderful - great views accross Lake Malawi. And the hotel was reasonably clean. However, the service needs to develop to be acceptable to us Europeans - only one towel per twin room - and when asked, only a hand towel provided instead of... More

We stayed here for a weekend at the beach. Our room and private ensuite bathroom were very clean, and thankfully the AC worked great! The beach is just ok here - it didn't really entice us to go swimming (unlike the beach at Cape Maclear, for instance) but was nice for a walk by the water. The meals we had... More
