“The location is impressive, the white sand of the beaches and clear blue waters are so inviting. The views out onto the lake from your veranda are pretty amazing too. There is something here for the whole family and they have so many great activities to enjoy.”

This is an excellent place in Malawi. We arrived late after a long drive from Malawi and found the restaurant closed, but the staff made us sandwiches. and had personalized greeting cards on arrival :-)The views of Lake Malawi are fantastic and a provide good scenery for rest and relaxation.
The restaurant was also good and we loved the attention to detail they had with each of the guests.
Nice little resort on the shores of Lake Malawi. Only 10 rooms or something so very intimate feeling. Room facing beach and lake with mini terrace in front of your room. Bathrooms a bit outdated . Excellent food. Some nights served on the candlelit beach.
This is one of the best destinations that i have ever gone to so far. I had a wonderful time staying at Chintenche… The view of the lake under the stars in the night was amazing! i enjoyed every bit and i look forward to going back very soon. I would suggest that you spend not less than 2 nights here so you can have a full experience.
