For the best experience, take a look at our selected lodges on Lake Malawi and the surrounding beach areas.
With a third of the country taken up by the lake, it is fortunate that Malawi has such beautiful lake shore beaches. Happily, the luxury hotels and lodges in Malawi take full advantage of the calm waters, golden sands and vast views. There is a widespread selection of properties on offer along Lake Malawi: some are authentically rustic, some embrace an island lifestyle aesthetic, and some are colorful and contemporary.
In our opinion, these Lake Malawi hotels offer a superb post-safari break, especially if you are after an authentic safari with some relaxation time at the end. As there are direct flights from Zambia's South Luangwa to Lilongwe, this is a perfect combination for a Zambia and Malawi safari.
Kaya Mawa is a superb beach lodge! With its stunning rooms, beautiful stretch of white beach, and high-quality food and service, it’s easily the finest property on Lake Malawi.
Simple and rustic with a stunning beachside location, Nkwichi is well loved at YZ. The whole lodge is full of character, and there’s a wonderful range of things to do!
Pumulani is an excellent option for travellers seeking something smart, contemporary, reliable, and offering good food and service. It’s built on a hillside overlooking Lake Malawi, and boasts spectacular views!
