Situated on one of Kenya’s most pristine beaches, this idyllic lodge is the perfect place for an African experience. The property is set on a three and a half acre estate bordering an endless pristine beach. The house has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and is surrounded by verandas.When we think of Kenya, safaris always come to mind, but not the image of its beaches. The coastline is exceptional, with miles of fine white sandy beaches surrounded by coconut palms and lapped by the incredibly warm waters of the Indian Ocean.Malindi is a haven for those seeking relaxation, uncrowded places where life revolves around the sea and the beach. It is a hideaway destination, traditionally chosen by some members of the jet set, such as Richard Burton, who sought the privacy that few places can offer like Mailindi, specifically in the bay known as Che Sale.Isolated, surrounded by lush vegetation and a few metres from the unspoilt beach of Che Sale, we find this magnificent Lodge composed of a main house and a guest house.Built with local natural materials, it is configured to live with all the comforts that can be achieved in such a brutally wild place. It has the charm of an authentic castaway hut on the edge of the sea, and it is here that our African adventure begins where we will learn first hand about Swahili culture.
The main house has 2 bedrooms, one bedroom on the main floor with 2 beds and en-suite bathroom. The other bedroom is upstairs with king size bed and en-suite bathroom. The main house has a kitchen and common areas.
The guest house has 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has 2 beds and the other has 1 king size bed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. It has a nice porch. A total of 4 en-suite bedrooms, 6 beds and with an accommodation capacity for 8 persons. The house has service staff who live on the property. Breakfast service, transfers, local daily guide, home chef, etc… are offered. Lunch and dinner service on request. From here we will visit the best safaris, temples, national parks, we will recommend you the best places to practice water sports, main cities, original activities such as seeing a snake and crocodile farm, as well as touring the spectacular coastline, a few metres from the farm we will find a kite surfing school, and the Che Shale hotel, designed from the traditional “bands” hidden among the coconut trees.They have a bar and restaurant specialising in international cuisine where we highlight the local seafood as one of the specialities of the local gastronomy. Welcome to a “Memories of Africa” experience.
A place of inspiration where the fashionable concepts of “eco slow” and “eco chic” reach their peak, but in a natural and authentic way…they invented it. While enjoying your stay at Malindi Lodge, our manager will organise a series of unbeatable activities that will crown your total experience in this beautiful land of a million opportunities. These activities are tailor-made, tailored to suit your time and are easy to take, most importantly with memorable adventures worthy of your hard-earned money! Should you need more capacity “bandas” can be booked at the Che Sale Hotel, accommodating around 18-25 people.
ACCESS TO THE FINCA
The access to the finca is by a dirt track of about 5 km. It is a sandy road made of coconuts where you can already foresee the enormous particularity and beauty of this place with zero visual or acoustic pollution. Few places have the personality of Che Sale. A team can pick you up at the airport and take you directly to the house. We have reliable local guides on site with whom to organise any activity, visit or transfer. DISTANCES AND TRANSFER RECOMMENDATIONS The lodge is located in Che Sale Bay, we recommend flying to Nairobi and from there taking a domestic flight to Malindi (1 hour), or flying to Mombasa and driving to Che Sale (approximately 3 hours on a decent road). Malindi is 30 minutes away and Watamu is a 1 hour drive. The drive from the coast of Watamu, the southernmost marine reserve, to the Tsavo reserve is 2h30 by car, but the trip is a spectacle in itself, as we will drive on film-like roads, see the sunrise, (in the parks it is recommended to enter at 8h AM at the latest) and be able to feel the rural areas, see the small constructions in which the rural population lives, and the exuberant vegetation of the coastal strip that expands along the coast of the country. To the south of Malindi Bay is Silversands Beach, surrounded by hotels, discos, casinos, pubs, old mosques, golf courses and the Malindi National Marine Park. The northern part is characterised by its ravines, such as the Hell’s Kitchen
