The Sands at Chale Island is an amazing hotel on a private island just south of Diani Beach. It is one of the most environment friendly hotels in Kenya, built to guarantee a stay with ultimate privacy and romance. Even when all rooms are fully booked, you still feel totally peaceful, tranquil and secluded.
The Sands at Chale Island offers six different sort of rooms. They differ from standard rooms, to banda’s elevated over the ocean to a luxury suite on a rock just before the island. The traditional, luxury way of building, the white sandy beach, the lush tropical greens and the island life make this a unique hotel.
An ancient mangrove forest covers two-thirds of Chale Island, home to the highest mangrove trees of East Africa. This is the so-called sacred forest or kaya. Inland there is also a mystical mangrove lake influenced by the daily tides. The resort covers fifteen acres of this forest and has a beautiful cove of 10,000 square meters. The beach here has white powdery sand, a blue ocean and living coral reefs that protect the cove. Seeing how far this beach is from everything, this is the only truly private beach of Kenya.
