This is a beautiful small resort situated on a lovely stretch of beach on lake Malawi. The beach has white sand, plenty of rees and very nicely furnished with local crafts. Food was also great. A bit pricey, but you certainly get your money's worth. All the staff were very polite and helpful. The only con was that none of the boats were working to explore more of the lake, so we did some kayaking instead. A memorable stay even if its pricey.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Chintheche Inn is set in extensive, lush gardens dotted with splendid, shady trees and overlooking Lake Malawi which, oceanlike, stretches to the horizon. The distant Viphya Mountains form a dramatic backdrop. There is a central dining area and bar, and meals often take place (weather permitting) under the stars or in a secluded corner of the garden, near the large swimming pool. Chintheche Inn boasts some of the finest beaches on the lakeside as well as excellent freshwater activities such as boating and snorkelling. Meeting and interacting with the local people, biking through villages and learning about the Chintheche Tree Planting initiative from our staff are just a little of what makes the friendly, laid-back Inn such a unique place to visit. Birdlife is abundant, while the reclusive mutable sun squirrel may be sighted in the gardens. ... more less
