This is a particularly nice place to stay on Lake Malawi. The cabins are cool, comfortable and airy, the food is good, particularly the breakfasts and the view is superb. The staff are efficient and friendly. The grounds are walled, more to stop hawkers wandering in and out than from any real need for security as the people of the...

I spend a night here with my Malawian hosts. The resort is small in size. The compound is very well maintained (evident from the photos attached) and fenced off for privacy. The scenery is amazing! The room was clean, comfortable and there was not much mosquitoes at night. We went for a sunset cruise costing us USD 15 per person....

We were booked at Chembe for three nights and left after the first. The smell of fish drying right behind that camp is too much to handle! We are fisherman and simply couldn't handle it!!! Very disappointed.

Beautiful, deserted beach surrounded by mountains. The chalets are simple, but well appointed with aircon. With temperatures reaching the low 40's over this time of year, this was an absolute bonus. The staff were very friendly and even made me a birthday cake for my birthday. Great food and lovely experience.

We camped at Chembe Eagles nest although rooms are available in a nice garden setting on the shores of Lake Malawi. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice bar and good food in the restaurant. We went snorkeling, enjoyed a fish barbecue on the beach and fed Fish Eagles. Bathrooms were clean.
