Che Shale

Che Shale has a very unique style. The bandas and restaurant are built with renewable local materials such as Casuarina trees, palm trees, doum palms, coconut fiber, mango wood, and other local woods. You will not find any plastic or any signs of a modern complicated life at Che Shale. Furniture, fittings, and accessories have been carefully crafted and designed to give Che Shale’s natural setting a slightly contemporary feel.

What makes Che Shale so unique is its style. Che Shale has been styled by acclaimed Milan furniture and interior designer Marzia Chicherretti. Marzia’s style has been described as tropical contemporary. Her furniture is handmade in Kenya using homegrown materials and locally-trained talent.

Under the large palm-thatched roofs, oversized cushions, and comfortable daybeds invite to relaxation. In your room, you will find unique furniture carved out of blocks of mango and cedar wood, soft natural colors, large lamps made out of palm fiber, private verandas with daybeds, open sky outdoor shower, and a constant ocean breeze that flows throughout.


For budget conscious customers or those interested in a long stay with Che Shale, the Kajama bandas were entirely rebuilt in 2011. You will find them more comfortable and better appointed, with even solar power.

Each Kajama banda is built on stilts and tucked in the doum palms. In your banda, you will find one double bed with a mosquito net, a mirror, a large lockable box, and a covered veranda with a table and two chairs. Kajama customers are steps away from the beach. Showers, sink area, and toilets are shared with the other Kajama guests and are located behind the bandas. You will enjoy the same facilities and lounging areas as Che Shale clients, as well as take your meals in the main restaurant.



Che Shale Restaurant is known on the Kenya coast for his fresh seafood, grilled meats, homemade pasta dishes, tropical fruit platters, fresh-baked bread in safari style tin trunk, and other home-made specialties like seaweed in batter (picked up fresh from the beach), and spicy chili jam.

You will find some of the following dishes on the menu: Zanzibar style calamari, grilled mixed seafood platter, crab and coconut soup, grilled lobsters, fresh catch of the day ceviche, various meat and seafood stir-fries, penne crab, spaghetti vongole, greek salad, passion fruit cream, coconut pudding, and many more.

You will stay with half board basis during your surf camp. Breakfast includes a selection of fruits, toasts, eggs, bacon, yogurt, cereals, and pancakes. Che Shale also offers a light snack menu with a selection of sandwiches for quick afternoon bites.
