You can quench your thirst at any time of day at our beach bar – that seamlessly merges understated modernism with African boutique heritage. Hand-carved and cushioned fishing boat loungers embrace you, locally weaved sofas and comfy pillows relax you, and cozy corners give you intimate secluded enclaves.


Our drinks list offers an interesting and quality range of tipples. You can sip a cocktail whilst gazing out over the gentle waves of Lake Malawi; enjoy a glass of wine with a good book; glug a local beer over a game (or lesson) of Bao – a game considered one of the oldest in the world – with one of our local staff; or simply sit back, relax and enjoy another cup of coffee. Some evenings, a local choir even joins us on the beach to perform some unforgettable rhythms of live Malawian song and dance.


The south-facing beachfront bar – just metres from the lake – offers panoramic sunset views and one of the most romantic settings on earth. At Kaya, we massage all your senses at the same time – there’s nowhere else quite like it.
