8/10 Very good

Th setting is beautiful. The monkeys greeted us several times. The pool was clean. The bathroom in our room was beautiful. Breakfast choices were fantastic and tasty. The smell of mold in our arrival was overwhelming. We asked for the aircon to help dry the air and remove the smell but it was broken. We were promised that it would be fixed the same day. It was not fixed. That night it rained and the roof leaked several places, hence the mold and therefore the smell. Another room was never offered even though we mentioned something right away about the smell.

I loved working with the staff. The personalized attention to the guests needs was exceptional! The food is the best I have eaten in Lilongwe. The only thing that could be improved is the wifi access. It was very unreliable and I had to ho purchase my own mifi To be able to work

Relaxing location with superior service.
Having to travel to Lilongwe for business I looked for a hotel with superior service and comfort and am pleased to say Kumbali hit the mark. The staff were extremely polite and responsive to requests. They were proactive in every manner. The managers took the time to address me by my name. The rooms were very large and comfortable. We took advantage of the airport transport and used their car service a few times, which was timely and safe. The food service was also good. Best of all while this would be a great place for a vacation, as I was on business the WiFi service was perfect. Fast and reliable.
