The set up of the property is amazing but not physically friendly for challenged guests as a lot of staircase up and down and limited lifts in certain areas only.Have to improve a lot on their restaurants the food is of very poor qualities for a beautiful place like that and expensive!.

10/10 Exceptional

Our son, who works in Mwanza, recommended that we stayed at Malaika. We were not disappointed. The staff were, without exception, friendly, helpful and courteous. The room was well equipped and was everything that we wanted. The dining options were excellent and the quality of the food was also very good indeed. If we ever go back to Mwanza, we would definitely stay at Malaika again - in a heartbeat.

Great place to stay.
We would recommend this hotel. Buzzing with local nightlife, families, business and pleasure. You can’t go wrong but don’t be fooled by the name beach - you can’t swim in the lake at that point. Great swimming pool though.
