We finished our 4 day trek here and nothing could have been more perfect - friendly owners and staff, beautiful location, hot luxury showers and a menu to die for. The roof bar Is the best place to be for sunset and the night sky.

The owners were excellent. Food brilliant. Had the balcony suite. Amazing room. Great location for night time photography. They arranged activities for my brother in law and his family. Very caring and considerate.

About
Description
Welcome to Kachere Kastle! After nearly eight years in the build, we are delighted to be open to welcome guests. We are located on a beautiful stretch of sandy beach, on the shores of Lake Malawi; approximately ...More 30km south of Chintheche & 310km north of Lilongwe. We have 12 beautiful, airy & spacious en-suite rooms: six of which are centred around our large pool, & the rest face the lake. Four of the lake facing rooms are tower suites; each with their own lounge. The upper tower suites also have a balcony & a private roof terrace ... where you can sleep under the stars! The castle is centred around a large pool, that has a swim up bar ... there is also a full sized squash court on site, and we have many activities that are free for our guests to use; ranging from windsurfers for the active, to sunloungers for the chillers! Our restaurant offers a variety of delicious home cooked, European style dishes & we happily cater for dietary requirements (many of our dishes are already gluten free). We also have an extensive bar. Day guests are welcome to come for lunch, with a prior booking. We look forward to welcoming you in person. Oh! Did we mention the great campsite? Every group of campers has their own cooking prep area, flood- light, charging socket, basin with running water, barbecue and fire pit. Showers are hot and strong! Warm regards Russ & Kate Less
