Why Detox at Kaya Mawa Luxury Resort?
If you’re after a digital detox, well Kaya Mawa Luxury Resort isn’t your average gadget-free holiday. It’s certainly no hippie haven with yoga and meditation and you don’t hand over your phone and laptop when you arrive. You don’t have to because this is one of the worst connected places in the world!
Nestled on the tiny Likoma Island in Lake Malawi, this chilled resort openly boasts bad phone coverage on its website, meaning this isn’t a digital detox by choice, there really is no 4G, 3G, barely a wifi signal, barely any cars and a distinct lack of people.
Because they’ve all been eaten by crocodiles.
Only joking! That’s some East African humour there, you better get used to it!
“We’ve gone on holiday by mistake!”
While a distinct lack of connectivity would have many people quoting classic film Withnail and I, in truth bad coverage translates to quality time to concentrate on the important things in life… no interruptions from texts, no emails, no TV, no adverts - just you, your loved one, the magnificent surroundings of Lake Malawi and a pile of good books!
Make no mistake, all this doesn’t mean you’ll be slumming it, not by any means! You’ll be staying in stunning, stone-walled, luxury eco-lodges, sleeping in four poster beds and drinking white wine under the most excellent canopy of o'erhanging African sunsets and stars.
The resort organises under the water, over the water, on the water and on the land activities. On the land, activities consist of trips to the market, the beautiful cathedral or community projects by foot, mountain bike or quad bike.
