Kitesurf Lake Malawi with the Luxurious Kaya Mawa Resort

Likoma Island, Malawi – Reported by Erin Riley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Somewhere in the midst of loyal destinations like South Africa, Kenya and Botswana and problem zones like Sudan and Somalia are a cluster of recently stable and lesser-known countries that have begun to open their arms to luxury travelers. Only recently coming into its own as a tourist destination, Malawi is an example of a truly untouched retreat, with empty beaches and exclusive luxury lodgings that will entice even the most seasoned of elite jetsetters.

True to its name, Kaya Mawa, or ‘maybe tomorrow’ in the local Chewa language, is a stunning five-star lakeshore resort that urges its guests to leave their worries behind and anticipate the bevy of once-in-a-lifetime experiences inherent in every detail of this magnificent African destination.

Along with its extensive selection of water sports and activities that includes sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and some of the world’s most famous fresh-water diving, Kaya Mawa has launched the first and only kitesurfing school in Malawi.

The perfect choice for adventurous couples and families, these kite surfing lessons will give guests of all sizes the opportunity to enjoy the singular and fun-filled sport. The school offers a range of new Cabrinha kites and boards suitable for every level and uses rigid inflatable boats which maximizes the time kite surfers spend in the water, as a boat captain will be on hand at all times to ensure safety.

Laden with giant baobabs and fringed with soft, golden beaches and rocky alcoves, Lake Malawi is seductively warm and blissfully salt-free. Kaya Mawa’s ten romantic stone and teak-framed thatched cottages offer breathtaking views of Lake Malawi and private terraces allow direct access to the water. 11 rooms and guesthouses sit atop rocky knolls and house 360-degree views and infinity plunge pools, while a honeymoon chalet sits on its own private island.
