Chintheche Inn


A true African experience

Chintheche Inn is a well-priced and welcoming guesthouse on the western shores of Lake Malawi. It is about 40km south of Nkhata Bay, one of the lake's most visited and attractive towns. Chintheche opens out onto a beautiful beach with the glistening waters inviting you to the lake shore. The rooms are spread around lush gardens brimming with birdlife, the perfect place to begin your day with a hearty breakfast. There is a swimming pool and tennis court to keep you occuppied as well as a games room for the young at heart. Savour a drink from the beach bar, wine and dine at the a la carte restaurant or enjoy a beach barbeque under the night sky.

Accommodation comes in the form of 10 en-suite bedrooms that echo the bright colours and feel of the lake. You will surely spend many an hour on your beachfront balcony with stunning views over the crystal clear waters, the perfect place for an ice-cold cocktail or sundowner drink. And when do leave your deckchair, you can take a welcome dip in the lake or go snorkelling, windsurfing and sailing. Landlubbers can enjoy a spot of hiking, fishing, mountain biking and cultural visits to nearby villages.

Chintheche is not a private island paradise nor does it pretend to be one. But it does offer a real and relaxed retreat on the shores of Lake Malawi. It boasts a beautiful, white sandy beach and is nestled below tropical forest. The gardens are lush and inviting, and the lodge promises a spell of serenity and seclusion, ideal for couples, groups or even families. The staff are warm and friendly, and you probably will feel more at home here than at more pretentious establishments. The beach barbeque is an event not to be missed and there are an array of water sports which are the rival of anywhere else on the lake. Oh and did we mention this all comes at the prices that won't break the bank?
