Kaya Mawa, Malawi

Completely renovated in 2010, this beachfront lodge prides itself on integration with the local community – the workforce comes from neighbouring villages and is trained on-site, and each room was designed with an island textile workshop aimed at empowering single mothers. Situated on Likoma Island on Lake Malawi, the property’s activities include sailing, kayaking, kite surfing, diving and snorkelling – or you can take your time wandering the 18-sq-km island by foot or by quad bike.
