Lupita Island Resort has thirteen uniquely crafted cottages, which all benefit from breathtaking lake and mountain views seen from their open verandas, making the most of the balmy breezes and memorable sunsets. Dotted amongst a tropical forest of indigenous trees, the property strives to leave as little mark on the natural environment as possible. Our smallest cottages are 1800 square feet and our two-bedroom, two-bath family suite is 2500 square feet. 

The resort design features undulating roofs thatched from local grasses, and the lakeside of each room is completely open-air, so you can enjoy the lake breeze and soak in your natural surroundings.  As you relax under our refreshing waterfall showers, life’s stresses simply melt away. Each villa includes bathtubs and plunge pools on either the deck or terrace, as well as a bar and large living area, ideal for relaxation or entertaining.

The Livingstone suite caters for families of up to five, with an additional sleeping area and bathroom as well as the option of private dining.

A butler is on hand to help make your stay unforgettable and see to all your everyday needs. 
Our attention to quality and service will surpass guests’ expectations from the moment the flight touches down on our private airstrip.

Spa & Gym

Set high on the hillside of Lupita Island, our spa and wellness centre has magnificent views of Lake Tanganyika and the neighbouring mountains.

Balancing the rustic grace of the natural landscape with modern salon facilities, the spa offers classic aesthetic treatments using essential oils and trusted massage techniques. Natural treatments with our experienced therapist will renew and hydrate your skin and feed your soul – a wonderful treat after a long day in the sun.  


End the day around our fire in our cozy boma. Lanterns light the way and delicious snacks are brought to you by our waiters accompanied by drinks of your choice and that sound of ice tinkling in your glass. Watch the lights of the fishermen as night takes over the light of day.

The Beach Shack

Newly built, our private beach and beach bar are a great hit with all ages.  Sun loungers and umbrellas are set up throughout the day for guests to use whenever they feel they would like to enjoy the lake from a different place. Cold drinks are readily available and kayaks and snorkeling equipment are easily on hand at any time. Enjoy an evening BBq organised on special balmy nights, while local fishing boats with their lanterns twinkle across the lake.

Pool & Pool Bar

Laze around our lovely freshwater pool under the African skies, with an ice-cool cocktail of your choice, ordered from the pool bar. Or swim up to the water bar to cool down after relaxing in the sun. For privacy and tranquility, the pool is set away from the main area.

Games Room

Our games room is a great hit with teenagers and adults alike. A pool table, a foosball table and table tennis, not to mention the darts are available for use at any time. Plan a tournament with the family or just a knockabout with friends before dinner.
