Facing a wooden gate brings about a mysterious aire to entering this property. As we sit in our van waiting to enter I wondered what lay a ahead. The gatesman opened up asked who we were and welcomed us in. Our first impression didn't wow us but that was short lived! A warm welcome from the Mangeress Beatrice and a...

We stayed somewhere else in Diani and wished we had known about this hotel instead. We wanted to try a new restaurant out along the beach and walked up to this beach front property. It looked inviting on first glance and it certainly lives up to it. We were immediately welcome by the local staff and they introduced us to...

We would, first of all say Thank you to Mr. Shridhar of Elwana Sky safaris for suggesting Afrochic. We needed a break and we got it. Each and every staff member took care of our comforts with a smile. The room was very clean and i think they cleaned it twice a day. The whole property is very nice and...

AfroChic is one of those perfect places that you want to tell all your friends about, but at the same time you don't want to tell anyone about, as it feels like your own little secret piece of paradise. I have been several times, most recently last month, and everything about it is perfect. If there is ever a tiny...

Having stayed on the Diani coastline several times before we thought we would take the opportunity to see what Afro Chic had to offer. After a short flight from Nairobi and a relatively quick transfer from Moi airport in Mombassa (likoni ferry no delays) we arrived at resort in the early afternoon, met with a glass of bubbly and first...

Afrochic was the perfect getaway in every respect. The hotel itself is stylish and comfortable, the staff attentive but discrete, the location simply stunning. I don't think we've ever felt so rested -- what a break is for, after all! With thanks to Adriaan and the team, who we hope to see again soon. Howard and Alta

My wife and I visited Afrochic earlier this month after a few days in Nairobi. The idea behind visiting Diani was to spend some time relaxing and Afrochic really hit the spot! We were greeted at Ukunda airstrip by their driver and within the first few minutes got a taste of their first class service. After the journey from Nairobi,...

Situated on the white sands of the sparkling Diani Beach, AfroChic dazzles with views of exotic, ancient dhows in full sail. The graceful curve of the Diani shoreline tempts all to walks in the warm shallows along the edge of the African continent. AfroChic offers ten individual, uniquely-styled rooms with ocean and garden views. This 'home-from-home' retreat will see you return again and again. ... more   less
