My only regret is not finding this place sooner. Here is what makes AfroChic uniquely different: 1. Personalized service: I was met at the car park by Beatrice, the Assistant Manager. The staff are also friendly, with a fast check-in process at the Reception and capable yet welcoming dining staff. 2. Exceptional house keeping: At first when I was shown... More

We stayed here in Nov 2015 with my parents as a luxury beach getaway. The service was excellent, the food was fresh and delicious and the menu was superb. The beachfront location is great, and the private beach means you also don't get hassled by the beach boys. The staff went out of their way to provide whatever we needed.... More

I would give Afro Chic seven stars.....and that should say it all!! After my last visit to Diani, I thought I had seen it all......but this small, beautiful boutique hotel has the classiest, the most tasteful and most elegant interior decor I have ever seen! The decor for the public areas downstairs should feature in 'Vogue" or "House and Garden"... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Afrochic in June 2015. Service was first class from the moment we arrived at Ukunda airport and throughout the entire stay.

The service was good, but as we were a small family I felt we got forgotten as the larger groups over shadowed us.
