Lupita island

Lupita Island is a remote, unspoiled private island occupying 110 acres of uninhabited space.

The resort offers luxurious, comfortable, mostly private accommodation that allows guests to relax and enjoy breathtaking views of the lake and mountains. The resort offers top notch facilities like fine dining options, gymnasium, spa, swimming pool, games room, bar & lounge, boma and a beach shack.

Situated on a private island, on the incredible Lake Tanganyika


Cooling breezes flow through Lupita’s open dining room, sitting at the highest point of the island. The calm ambiance and extraordinary view of the lake delights the eye, but it is their menu of fresh fish – delicious grilled Nile perch and a creatively seasoned Kuwe straight from the lake – that satisfies the palate. Our chefs specialize in modern African cuisine, prepared with fresh local ingredients and always accompanied by our delicious desserts.Meals may be taken in our convivial open-air restaurant – a charming thatched dining room, which is lit by candles at night as we serve three or four course dinners. For a more casual affair, lunch or dinner may be set up by the pool or around the bar.


Lupita Island Resort has ten 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. There smallest cottages are 1800 square feet and their 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.
