Simple. Stylish. Secluded.

Che Shale is a rustic beach lodge on a remote stretch of Kenya’s northern coast, about 20 kilometres north of Malindi. This laid-back tropical resort epitomises relaxed barefoot beach living, with comfortable rustic accommodations to suit couples or families in a beautiful natural setting away from the busier tourist hotspots further along the coast. One of East Africa's top kite-surfing destinations, the lodge offers other exciting watersports and ocean-side activities, endless sandy beaches to explore, and plenty of space to kick back and do absolutely nothing at all. Pack a kikoi – it may be all you need!
Stylish beach retreat with world-class kitesurfing.
Well distant from crowded beaches, indulge in miles of serene and deserted sands, against a lush backdrop of coconut palms and indigenous vegetation. With its blend of low-key luxury and natural beauty, Che Shale has been one of Kenya’s most iconic destinations for almost 40 years.
All the charm and quiet of nature are captured in 9 uniquely designed, castaway-chic style beachfront bandas that combine laid-back style and attention to detail.

For a mid-budget, rustic holiday, where you can do as much or as little as you fancy, Che Shale gives you everything you need – comfortable living spaces, friendly staff, and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!
