Ulisa Bay Lodge
Ulisa Bay Lodge
Situated on the West Side of Likoma Island, with spectacular sunsets, Ulisa Bay Lodge offers affordable island luxury. There are Deluxe & Standard Chalets, with large verandas overlooking the lake, solar powered backup lighting and airy mosquito nets. The campsite is beside the lake between the mango trees.
The well stocked bar and the restaurant have a wooden deck open on three sides to catch the breezes off the lake.
The lake water around Likoma is some of the clearest in the world and perfect for snorkelling – several species of brightly coloured fish are found only in the waters around the island. The lodge is built on the edge of Ulisa, a busy fishing village, so guests can relax at the lodge, meet the islanders at the bar, see the fishing boats going with their bright lights to fish at night, and wander through the village. There are tracks & footpaths throughout the island with wonderful views over the lake. It is very safe to walk anywhere on Likoma, even at night and even alone. The lodge staff will be happy to escort guests on walks to view Likoma’s many attractions including the enormous brick & stone Cathedral built on a rocky hillside over 100 years ago by the English Missionaries, and still filled with over 500 people and 3 choirs every Sunday.
Likoma has a new airport with flights from Lilongwe most days.
