About Che Shale

Ideally situated on the pristine coastline just 20 minutes north of Malindi, Che Shale offers style, simplicity and seclusion. Awaiting guests are miles of unspoilt deserted beach, five stylish beach bandas, delicious fresh cuisine, and a myriad of activities from deep-sea fishing to the best kite surfing in East Africa.

Che Shale offers two styles of accommodation, Deluxe and Standard bandas. Che Shale has been styled by acclaimed Milan furniture and interior designer Marzia Chicherretti, in a style that has been described as tropical contemporary, featuring Kenyan hand-crafted furniture and using home-grown materials and locally trained talent. Under our large palm thatched roofs, over-sized cushions and comfortable daybeds invite you to relax. In your room you will find unique furniture carved out of blocks of mango and cedar wood, soft natural colours, large lamps made out of palm fibre, private verandahs with daybeds, open-air outdoor showers, and a constant ocean breeze that flows throughout.

The on-site Che Shale Restaurant is known on the Kenyan coast for its fresh seafood, grilled meats, home-made pasta dishes, tropical fruit platters, freshly baked bread in safari-style tin trunks, and other home-made specialities. Guests staying full board order from our a-la-carte menu for lunch and from a three-course set menu, which changes daily, for dinner. Breakfast includes a selection of fruits, toasts, eggs, bacon, yoghurt, cereals, and pancakes.

Che Shale is all about relaxation and barefoot luxury. Guests can lounge on large comfortable cushions around the bar or in our loft lounge overlooking the beach. Sunbeds and over-sized lounge daybeds invite you down onto the beach where waiters will keep drinks and snacks coming your way; don't forget to visit our juice bar for a delicious, healthy and fresh tropical juice. Our massage banda is a heaven of relaxation for indulging in reasonably priced massage, while the newly opened beach boutique offers the latest must-have styles of beachwear and accessories with a local African flavour.

The beach has been blessed with the most ideal conditions for kite surfing beginners and experienced riders alike. We offer a range of courses with professional instructors, providing everything you need to learn this addictive sport. Other activities include stand-up paddling, scuba diving, surfing, and deep-sea fishing.
