It was a bit hard to find but worth it (on google map look for sani beach) the location and the sandy beach on the lake are amazing! The managers are very knowledgeable and friendly. We hired a canoe (we paid for it) and this was fun. No major activities around just relaxing. The food was good and large portions- as vegetarians/ vegans the option are enough.
TNM is the only available network there.
We got the big villa which was enormous for our needs. The self catering & BBQ outside was big plus so we could have dinner or lunch on the balcony to enjoy great time
All in all highly recommend 🤙😄

We were 4 travellers originally traveling från mbeya tanzania to malawi, we found no other hotel who could help us with transfer except Dalene and Mike. Our trip changed so half The group travelled from mbeya and half flew to malawi. They were absolutely Amazing and fixed us transport both from The north border and from another hotel. They picked us up personally. Dalene and Mike are Amazing people from South africa, they both have big hearts and wants The best for their clients. All The price are fair, nothing is overprice. The lodge is fresh, clean and very Nice. The beach to The lake is very beautiful and The food is exceptional. Mike even cooked us home cooked food, which you miss when you travel long. Their staff was Amazing and bazil thaught us to play bao and he walked up a hill with us.

The scenary is Amazing around this lodge and people are so friendly. No worries to take a morning jog or play football on The beach with The local kids.

IF you ever go to Malawi, it is a Must to stay here and get to know Dalene and Mike. You will be amazed and have a wonderful vaccation.

Thank you so much Dalene and Mike for giving us The best memories, your 4 swedes.

Stayed there for the half night early June 2016.

I was alone and took normal rondavel which was spacious, clean, quiet and naturally-ventilated with good mosquito protection. Rondavels are located close to the beach and restaurant at reception area. Lodge has night security post/patrol led my Moses, who is knowledgeable and interesting collocutor. Hi Moses!

I spent 10 days in Malawi and visited almost all areas in central and south part of country but this lodge was the only place where Chambo fish is cooked in great way. Somehow, its taste reminds rather a lobster that lake fish. Very impressive!

Thank you.

Fish Eagle bay run by a lovely couple, was one of our stops during the Calendar Lake Project 52 day expedition around lake Malawi. We were warmly welcomed by staff and owners who proceeded to ensure that all we required was available to us. Unfortunately we only stayed one night but wished we had more time to spend on their beautiful beaches. They gave a personalized service and ensured that we were well watered and fed. Huge Thank you Dalene who went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. From the Calendar Lake Crew.

A rather pretty small lodge with rather nice beach about 6km off the road but well sign posted (but you might think you are lost - so just keep driving). We came last year for 2 nights and this time stayed 5, it is under new management and we did think they were excellent, friendly and obviously enjoy their work. Lovely beach and even though was caught the edge of some bad weather which turned the usually beautiful waters a murky brown it was still fun to swim in and even managed to body surf. Locals are friendly and not in your face. Fish and chips for 2 and a rather nice bottle of white SA wine for about £18... As an omelette expert (well I eat them everywhere) I think their morning vegetable omelettes were pretty good.

Room tip: Room 1 & 2 rather nice... see the lake whilst reading on the bed. I believe there are some self catering cottages.
