We had originally planned for a two night stay but arrived 24h late due to a missed flight Connection. Relly a pit since this Place is Beautiful and the perfect Place to start of you vacation and wind down into vaction mode. It is right on the beack. Very nice garden with a small poll and of course direct access to the beach. The dining and bar areas are shady and cozy and it is a perfect end to a Lovely dinner to just stroll over to the bar and have a sundowner, play some games and relax. The have PADI centre for all you snorklers and divers and it is easy to go out sailing on the lake. The staff is attentive and very nice. If you are not into water activities you can take walks on the beach or to the local village or just sit in a beach chair and enjoy a book. I would easily have put five stars on this but the room do need a refurbishing. Not that you spend any time there but it is a Little bit outdated and worn down. If we even have the opportunity to revisit Lake Malawi and Cape Maclear it is very likely that we return to this Place.
