At Kaya, we offer a variety of luxurious rooms, all with spectacular views of the beach or lake. Each chalet having its own unique décor and some offering private pools.

Standard chalets



The first chalet on the beach, closest to the bar and restaurant makes Khuyu the perfect place for those who wish to just relax and enjoy the lake.



Our second chalet from the beach. Built higher up the rocks Mbungu has stunning views across the lake and across the Kaya Mawa beach. Below the chalet down a stone stairway is a private deck with access straight into the lake.



Nestled right on the edge of the lake, Msekwa is a photographer's favourite. Enter through an arched doorway. The wooden walkway allows you to make the best of the lake.

The other room perfect for children can fit two single beds with space for another that hangs from the roof leading out on to a shaded terrace.

Ndomo House

Ndomo is ideal for those wanting complete privacy from the outside world, a great family home or a magical escape for two.

The house accommodates 8 people with access to your own private beach, kitchen and large living area. Your own plunge pool for the lazy days when the lake seems too far away.
