Property Description

Soul Rebel is located right at the Lake in Nkhata bay, a beautiful village in northern Malawi. The village center with access to public transport, shopping, restaurants and bars is just a 5 minutes walk away.
Staying with us, you will be surrounded by nature and gardens, our private beach and stunning lake views.
Our mission is to fill this place with good times, good food and good music. Our focus is to be as environmentally friendly as possible

Our rooms are completely renovated (last renovation in 2023) and equipped with everything you might need.
Therefore all of our rooms have solar panels, some of our rooms have compost toilets to save as much water as possible and our greywater is being filtered. Each room has a private bathroom or a shared bathroom nearby and is equipped with fans, lockers, international sockets (with usd) and lights near the bed

We believe in local and seasonal products and try to source as many ingredients as possible from surrounding farmers and the Malawian industry.
Our menu is a mixture of Malawian and international food with specials such as our Tapas hour or our Pizza day

We organize a variety of activities such as trips to special places and beaches in and around Nkatha bay as well as paddle surf, our jam sessions, volleyball and boat trips including snorkelling, cliff jumping and possible sighting of the fish eagle!
We can also organize activities like Scuba diving, long hiking trips and Safaris with our partner companies.

Just let us know what you would like to experience while you are here and we will be happy to advise you on different options!

Very Good
Aug 12, 2023
Great owner and staff, very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful view over the lake and close to town. Free sups too! Nice restaurant bar serving OK western food at OK prices. The lodge is newly renovated from an old lodge but still feels like a work in progress in parts. Needs more comfortable places to sit, aka more cushions.
