Norman Carr Cottage

Boutique hotel in Central Malawi

Balancing simplicity, character and luxury, this beach retreat's six suites and two-bedroom family cottage have massive handmade king-size beds, small living areas and open-air garden showers. The beach and gardens are full of hanging chairs and sun beds and there’s a beachside pool and whirlpool – perfect for a Malawian gin and tonic.

The food is great and activities include snorkelling, sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. It is about 15km south of Monkey Bay.
