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,...

I recently had a 2 night stay at AfroChic with my cousin; we couldn't speak highly enough of the experience we had; all staff were extremely friendly and hospitable and couldn't do enough for us; the room overlooking the ocean was of a high standard and the food was delicious.

My cousin and I spent two luxurious nights at this beautifully maintained beach hotel with the waves of the Indian Ocean lapping just metres away. We were pampered to the full by the highly attentive staff and given a wide-ranging menu of delicious meals to choose from. The ocean-view room was elegantly furnished leading onto a large balcony complete with...

Afrochic is a very small hotel consisting of circa 11 rooms packed into a small mansion. Its addressed to people looking for a cosy calm atmosphere away from big resort. However, the hotel is unfortunately situated for this purpose: It is tightly confined by two rather noisy neighbours (loud music playing long into the night). On one side is an...

Nice small hotel located on a quite small ground, surrounded by very big hotel complexes. They are trying to offer you a romantic surrounding unfortunately but every evening there are bands playing 70 years music very loud. Neighbors burned their rubbish on the beach. You will hear the bands playing even with closed windows. Food is excellent and the staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
