I've stayed here before and will certainly return. Our group had been travelling for a couple of weeks among remote rural areas right off the usual tourist routes and we use the Malaika Beach as a place to relax peacefully before the long flight back home. Views over Lake Victoria are spectacular and the whole experience from check in onwards...

First, I chose this resort since it was close to the airport and I had to take an early flight. But when I checked out, I was amazed with the location, ambience and service. The staff were quiet friendly and food was also great. I will recommend this resort for a relaxing holiday

If you are looking for a place 'home far away from home,' then Malaika Beach Resort is the place to be. I found this hotel very excellent. You definitely have excellent view of Lake Victoria. I'll visit this place again and again.

Great location on the shores of lake Victoria with large swimming pool with view on the lake. Spacious, some outdated rooms and bathroom with jacuzzi, large restaurant with great food and a sumptuous (champagne) breakfast with too many nice dishes. Good wifi especially in restaurant. Highly recommended.

Cannot recommend Malaika enough - so glad we stayed - such a gem in Mwanza and a good spot to start and end a visit to the game parks - attentive customer service but still have your privacy by wonderful staff and management. The rooms are extremely comfortable, spacious and very clean with plenty of storage and lovely big bathrooms....

Enjoyed seating by the lake side taking some Kilimanjaro. Nice breeze from the lake. Didn't check into the hotel but this is a nice place to visit once in Mwanza. The service from the beach area is a little slow but it gets done ultimately.
