I would like to start by saying that the very few negative reviews on this lodge impress me as being very strange and perhaps intentionally distorted. But I think it raises the point that while Kaya Mawa may be a luxury resort, you may not think so if your idea of luxury is to be in the Four Seasons George V in Paris.
Food, service, quality of the lodging, and location. First, we experienced the food to be very good to excellent. You won't have a full menu from which to choose, but everything we had was really nice. Second, James, the owner/manager, is extremely pleasant and helpful. No complaints about any of the staff -- the service level was very good. Our room was fabulous in terms of view and floor plan. You must expect, though, that you will sleep under a mosquito net and the room will not be airconditioned. It can be unpleasantly warm at some times of the year and there are a lot of flying insects and ants, and some spiders. Don't go if you can't handle this. Finally, the location is extraordinary. If you like to swim, dive, or snorkel, you will probably love this resort. It is unique in my experience as a superbly clear fresh water environment with a lot of fish to look at. We had a lot of fun and are glad we went, even though in truth we prefer something more "civilized".
