We've stayed at AfroChic for several days and loved everything: the comfortable, well-appointed and clean rooms, soft beds, great showers. After our first night, we were lucky to get a free upgrade to the suite - spacious, with a large bathroom, and terrace with a perfect view of the ocean (although it seemed that the building was located in such...

Stayed for four nights in this little spot of paradise. It has everything- great staff, gorgeous setting with direct access to the beach, and truly amazing food. Travelled from Nairobi to Ukunda air strip with Air Kenya, a one and a bit hour flight. Richard met our flight and from then on he and his highly competent staff team made... More

A well appointed boutique hotel with a wonderfully warm team. Richard the manager on hand to receive you and ensure your stay is most comfortable. Nice beach. Loved the beach side beds for the lazy afternoons. Our room -Punda Milia - was most tasteful. Enjoyed the concept of dining at your own time. And no room service charges! Nice. We... More

We flew from Cairo to Nairobi early in the morning, changed planes, and flew to Uganda, Kenya for 2 glorious relaxing nights at the AfroChic resort. We were met at the little airport there by the manager, Richard Johnson, a delightful and well-organized host.. Everything is included in the price including all meals which you order from a huge menu... More

We arrived late into Mombasa Airport. We got lucky and go straight on to a ferry and arrived at Afrochic at 11pm. We were met with big smiles from Betty and the team. They told us not to worry about checking in formalities and we seated for dinner which we had preordered. The food and the cold beers hit the... More

Driving from Nairobi to Dar Es Salaam we decided to have a break for a couple of days. Chose AfriChic and we're not disappointed.

Everything about AfroChic made our holiday memorable. The welcome was delightful, the decor and room refreshing. Sufficiently quiet to offer complete relaxation. The staff were very professional, service was top notch. I loved that they noted how my husband and l loved our tea and provided it just that way during our entire stay. The food was amazing.
