My husband and I stayed over at the Lodge for one night during an extensive self-drive trip through Africa. The Lodge’s setting was lovely and the staff superfriendly. However, the accommodation, as well as the dining and bar areas were most disappointing. We don’t have...More

Wonderful location, my room was right on the lake. Only issue was the lake can be noisy with waves, so if you have trouble sleeping you might want to be further back. Sounds weird but the waves are really loud! Sunrise is spectacular. I loved...More

The room we stayed in was very clean and had a beautiful view of the bay and the private beach. The staff is wonderful and very efficient. I would give it 5 stars but the hot water was not working in our room.

About
Description
Opened for business on Christmas Day 1993, Njaya Lodge was built as a labour of love in cooperation with the people of our adopted home. In fact, many of the staff who helped build Njaya and make it what it is today, ...More are still there extending their typical Malawian warmth, humour and character to all our guests. Nestled into the side of a hill, and overlooking magnificent Lake Malawi, we've built a collection of chalets and houses spread over lush gardens and terraces that lead down to beautiful Chikale beach, the only beach in Nkhata Bay. There should be something to fit every budget, from brand new cottages perched over the water, to family houses and garden chalets, all ensuite with four poster mosquito-netted beds, fans and views. "The kind of place you could wake up in one morning and realise that you were supposed to be back at work months ago" from the book, 'Swahili for the Broken Hearted' by Peter More (Bantam Books).
