Cob Houses

The two spacious earthen houses “Casa Branca” and “Imbondeiro” each have their own private area away from the other chalets and bungalows. They both have large windows and a front veranda with an open view to the sandy beach.


The sleeping area and en suite bathrooms are tucked into the bush and “Imbondeiro” even has an outside shower and a stone bath tub directly at the foot of a huge baobab tree, providing guests with complete privacy but full access to nature.


Both houses are equipped with a luxurious King size bed, Scandinavian duvets and pillows, crisp white linen, large walk-in mosquito nets and locally handcrafted furniture


Beach Bungalows

Four spacious and luxurious wooden chalets are located directly at the beach. They have been erected on stilts to cause minimal impact to the fragile nature of the dunes. Through their picture windows all of the beach chalets offer an unhindered view of the lake and the bush countryside.


From your en suite bathroom, and even standing under the shower, you can look out onto the water and enjoy the manifold sounds and sights of nature around you. Like in all of Mbuna Bay’s guest houses, all furniture and decorations have been carefully crafted by local villagers; pillows and curtains have been sown by our own local tailor.


Enjoy moments of leisure in the hammock on your veranda and admire the spectacular daily sunset over the mountains of Malawi on the opposite side of the lake.

Bush  Houses

Four traditional brick bungalows provide an ideal setting for bush lovers and those on a smaller budget. They are arranged around a cozy courtyard, situated about 80m from the lake, surrounded by bush and large Baobab trees.


The bush bungalows offer the same comfort as the other guest houses, including an en suite bathroom and the exclusivity of an external private shower hidden in the bush under the open sky. Each bungalow has its own stony terrace from where you will experience that “the bush is alive”.
