My family rented one of the self-catering cottages for a weekend and had a lovely time. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach. The staff was very attentive. The cottage was fairly basic but very spacious and clean. We had a lovely experience and would recommend it to others who are looking for a relaxing beach vacation.

We are a family from the UK travelling Malawi seeing family and friends as we go along. We arrived after a long journey down the lake shore road and we were pretty tired to say the least. But from the moment we arrived at the Lodge the staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The rooms were nice,...

Relaxing & stunningly beautiful beachfront location with very attentive staff. Kika ,Joseph & their colleagues were excellent. I would recommend Fish Eagle Bay Lodge to anybody travelling down the west coast of Lake Malawi.

Nice quiet place to relax on the beach. It's a little distance from the nearest town (Nkhotakota) so you should probably stock up on anything you might need before going, unless you have a car. The food is great.

Had a great time at this lodge. Arrived late in evening vut was still accomodated with good food (best chips in Malawi) and drinks. Very friendly staff. Lovely self catering cottages. Resort is much prettier that the photos suggest. Had one of the ladies cook for us for dinner at the cottage. Lovely experience. Thanks a lot!

The location of the lodge is lovely - just along the beach - and its setting is nice too. Its biggest pro is the round pretty bar on the beach, which is very inviting and comfortable. Its down side is the interior of the rooms. Ours was crawling with ants, coming from the bathroom and climbing onto our beds. Unfortunately...

The best lodge in Nkhotakota district! Fish Eagle Bay is situated on a beautiful soft sand beach, close only to some sleepy Malawian villages. The rooms are beautiful and you are guaranteed a great night's sleep. The restaurants serves wonderful food - including THE best steak in Malawi. Best of all, you can watch the dhows sailing across the sunset...

Stayed camping at the beach. ON the beach. Super spots. Only us and another car, totally calm. Friendly staff. Restaurant makes Ok food at fair price. The entire place is solar powered (water and lights). Everything seems clean and well Maintained. There also are hobby cat boats for hire. Laundry can also be done. The only major downside taking 1...

A perfect spot for a relaxing few days by the lake - calm, remote and with open access to a large expanse of clean white sand and clean lake. The staff are very friendly and helpful and we wanted for nothing - my two kids spent most of the time on their own in the lake whilst my partner and...
