Sited on the slopes of the Thyolo Mountain, this historic tea planter’s bungalow is a relaxed, family-friendly retreat surrounded by lush, protected, subtropical rainforests. With its beautiful manicured gardens and panoramic views, Chawani has been sensitively refurbished to retain the rustic character and charm which has made this property enormously popular with visitors to the highlands for decades.
The house consists of four rooms, each providing comfortable accommodation; the main bedroom is en-suite while the other three rooms share a bathroom. A fully equipped kitchen is available for self-catering. With fire-heated water systems and screed floors, Chawani is typical of farm living and what it may lack in design features and polished finishes, it more than makes up for in character and comfort. While self-catering rates are available, our team of staff at the house will take care of your every need, and we offer rates inclusive of wonderful meals prepared using fresh estate produce.
Chawani is surrounded by the protected evergreen forests which are host to a variety of birds, making the property an ideal choice for birding enthusiasts. Satemwa is a working tea estate and guests are encouraged to visit the factory for tea tasting and tours of the factory which produces some of Malawi's finest export quality tea.
