About The Sands at Chale Island

Specifically built with nature and the environment in mind, The Sands at Chale Island is one of the most low impact hotels in Kenya.

Spread out to offer the utmost in privacy and romance, even when at full capacity one has a tremendous feeling of peace, tranquility and seclusion.

The combination of white beach, tropical plants, laid back island flair and Kenyan hospitality is what dreams are made of.

Every effort has been made to keep the natural vegetation of the Island intact.

All gardens and imported plants are carefully integrated into the Island’s original flora with an aim at increasing the indigenous wildlife.

Chale Island is a contemporary mix of Swahili structures, Italian stucco, Lamu furniture, objects of African art and varnished Mahogany.

Great care has been taken not only to preserve the natural environment of the island, but also to give a truly Kenyan feel by only using natural Kenyan products.

All buildings are constructed with locally quarried coral blocks and are roofed with high, palm leaf “Makuti” thatch. Internal walls are finished with Kenyan made Italian “stucco Venezziano” in hues of pale pink and blue.

The aim was and is “the buildings should be elegant but not luxurious, blending into the natural environment and reflecting the traditional architecture with a minimum four star standard”.

Room Features

The Sands at Chale Island offers six categories of accommodation to suit all tastes and demands, while always fulfilling the philosophy of “the buildings should be elegant but not luxurious, blending into the natural environment and reflecting the traditional architecture with a minimum four star standard”

All rooms are fully air-conditioned.

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible the main generator is turned off from 10:30 until 18:30. During this time there is no power available in the rooms, however the central public area of the Hotel is powered by a smaller generator.

 

Standard Rooms:

Carefully set into the natural environment, the main buildings with 28 spacious semi-circular en-suite rooms and Swahili day beds set on breezy verandas facing the ocean ensure all comforts are taken care of.

 

Bandas:

The Bandas (Swahili: small house) offer a unique and truly coastal holiday.

All Bandas have high, palm thatch roofs with views either out to sea, over the beach, or panoramas encompassing lagoon, channel, mangroves and the setting sun over the Shimba Hills. Sun beds set on private front lawns and large verandas with Swahili day beds give relaxing views.

Penthouse Suites:

Set well above the swaying treetops these suites offer breathtaking views of both ocean and island.

Featuring a separate sitting room, a veranda with a stunning 270 degree view of the ocean and an upstairs grotto with a Jacuzzi on the roof facing the sunset, the penthouse suites will give you the ultimate all round island view.

Overwater Suites:

A first of their kind in Kenya, the Water Bandas are located on the northwest of the island with stunning views of Bird Island, Gazi Bay and, in the distant sunset, the Shimba Hills.

The suite has a large bedroom with an en-suite bathroom which looks out over the channel and a separate sitting room.

Suite on the rocks (Honeymoon Suite) :

Not only a honeymooners dream, everyone’s dream!

Situated on a separate islet connected to the main Island by a stone bridge, a thatched roof soars high above the circular construction, then plunges down in the middle allowing rainwater to fall directly into a mini garden in the center of the room. A circular stairway leads one around an intricately crafted wall garden to an upstairs lounge, while the front veranda overlooks a private Jacuzzi on the cliff face and sunbathing deck.

Extravagant opulence at its peak

 

Dining & Bars

A blend of traditional Kenyan cuisine with a healthy twist of Italian panache and a hint of the Orient ensure that each meal is an event to be looked forwards to and enjoyed.

This, coupled to an extensive international beverage menu with a local taste of the exotic, and a well stocked wine cellar will complete your dream holiday.

With a selection of bars and restaurants to choose from, let us indulge you to the full.

Resturaunt:

With steps leading straight down to the center of the beach, the main restaurant is ideally situated to give the true island feeling.

Our expert team of highly trained cooks lead by Chef Evans will make sure that every meal is a pleasure.

With a strong emphasis on seafood, the live grilling station and Pasta corner ensure that your meal cannot be any fresher.

Traditional Kenyan cuisine, mixed with both Italian and Oriental dishes, will not leave you wanting in any aspect.

Bars:

Our friendly staff are at hand to serve Espressos, cold drinks, cocktails and a wide variety of wines and spirits at our bars.

Nestled between the Reception and the Restaurant is the Main Bar, always open.

The Galana pool bar is located by the Standard Rooms in unique tranquillity with stunning ocean vistas … Champagne always tastes better with a view of the ocean!

Tea time:

An essential part of the Chale Island day, offering a stunning selection of tea while one quietly contemplates the passing of Island life, and the daily pleasures afforded by nature.

Testimonials

Hi Desire

Just to say “thank you” for all that you have done for us to make Brian and Lisa’s honeymoon a great one! I am also sooooo glad you offered and we did the travel insurance – Lisa ended up being in hospital yesterday with drips for rehydration due to food/water poisoning. What a mission it would have been had we not done the insurance, but we are ever so grateful that your advices were followed!

Again “thanks” for the great service!
