Accommodation rating: Good Standard
Chintheche Inn is set on the western shores of central Lake Malawi. The pristine sandy beach curves endlessly away to the horizon and is palm-fringed, dotted by fishing villages and patches of lowland tropical forest. Accomodation at Chintheche Inn consists of 10 comfortable brightly furnished rooms with en suite bathrooms. Each has its own beach-view balcony overlooking the panoramic shoreline of Lake Malawi. The extensive grounds and gardens feature a lively campsite and a large pool. There is a central dining area and bar, although dining usually takes place (weather permitting) under the stars.
Activities at Chintheche Inn are directed not only at the obvious watersports of a lakeside resort, but also at land-based activities and explorations of nearby tropical forest. Knowledgeable local guides are on hand to lead birding walks or hikes in the area, head up mountain biking trails, or to arrange visits to the local fishing villages. The nearby Bandawe Mission also offers a fascinating peek into the country's colonial past.
Watersports at Chinheche Inn include swimming and snorkelling; beach barbecues are an excellent reason spend more time outside; and for the intrepid, a trip out to deeper waters on a fishing expedition with local fisherman should not be missed.
