Club Mak is an oasis in the Southern Region, with beautiful mature gardens and lots of shade trees. The hotel is quiet, calm and a great place to unwind in relative comfort. The southern end of the Lake is not the best of it, but Club Mak sports a lovely pool on the beachfront and a breezy bar, with a long golden beach and plenty of space to soak up rays without feeling crowded. Staff are friendly, polite and obliging - most Malawians are gentle smiling people and Club Mak is no exception. Malawi is third world Africa, so the pace is slow and relaxed, but that's why you take a holiday after all! It is nice to get away from refrigerated rooms and enjoy a natural breeze with fans to turn the air - and less noise! If you travel anywhere in the tropics you will experience insects like ants and mozi's, especially in the rains, but Club Mak has no more or less than anywhere else.
Cuisine at the hotel is very good, presented well, hot on arrival, cosmopolitan in theme, and a welcome change from much of the usual fare on offer in most venues in Malawi. Rooms are not just rooms, quite self contained and spacious so you can really get away and relax in several ways at the hotel: from outdoor wallowing to indoor wallowing. Or get active with water sport's or sightseeing or walks in the gardens! If you are looking for a grown up, uninterrupted, private and very comfortable place to retreat in lush surroundings after hours on the road or weeks in the city or a stressful job or want to let the kids run and play while you watch from a distance - Club Makokola is a winning spot.
