My wife and I had been in Malawi for two weeks prior to staying at this hotel, doing aid work. Sunbird was a two day excursion for our group to debrief on the previous three weeks.
It is probably one of the nicest hotels in Malawi. The beach and lake are wonderful. The exterior of the building and the grounds are also beautiful.
The rooms are fine, esp by Malawian standards. The deluxe and chalet rooms are much much nicer than the standard. The mattresses are open cell foam, not very thick, and not exactly new. There was hot water (!), and the plumbing worked - so these are pretty great things to have in the country.
Don't compare this to a resort in first world countries though. You will get bugs. The beds aren't great. The food is pushing the low end of average - especially for the price (the breakfast buffet was really the only highlight of food there). Quite frankly I thought it was a little steep in price all around.
Nonetheless it provided a nice place to stop and take a breather and think about the world.
