From Kilindoni through the village Otende is Maia Island Lodge facing the lagoon and Chole Island

From a dhow the lodge seems small

- a dining center and 2 main stocks of rooms
It was former a government conference center - now transformed to a lodge with 50 doubble rooms
Rooms are entered from the back
From all over,
Chole Island is part of the view
From the restaurant
- and from the the room
On a sand bank - reached by dhow - in the lagoon a small full moon party took place
