Chintheche Inn

Discover Chintheche Inn

Chintheche Inn is situated on the western shore of Lake Malawi in an area which boasts some of the finest beaches on the entire lakeside. The distant Viphya Mountains form a dramatic backdrop.

Within lush gardens overlooking the lake are 10 rooms and a 2 bedroom family cottage. All rooms open out onto a patio and grass lawns sloping to the beach. The Inn has a central dining area and bar, and meals often take place (weather permitting) under the stars or in a shady corner of the garden. There is a large pool, and campsites are discreetly situated in the ample gardens. During your stay you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, mountain biking, exciting birding and visits to local fishing villages and the nearby Bandawe Mission.
