This was the first hotel I stayed in on the coast of Kenya, it was a very pleasant surprise, from being greeted with cool towels and drinks to late evening meals. Afrochic is a small boutique hotel, however it is a very luxurious place to stay. The beach is very quiet as tourism has dropped severely in the last few... More

We all loved Afrochic! Lovely small boutique hotel. Amazing food (chef is really talented!), very hospitable stuff and attentive service. Rooms are very comfortable and nicely appointed. The top floor suit is especially pleasing. Will be back!

Great hotel, excellent location, delicious food, undeterred service and an eye for detail!! The family and I just returned from this hotel after a 5 day stay. It was with out a doubt the best hotel on Diani we have stayed at. The small size gives it a cozy effect and home like feeling. It has a great beach location... More

Having been to Afrochic before I was more than happy to go back. This time around, the food as usual was to die for and this perfect little boutique hotel gave us a great room too.

A small boutique holiday perfect for families as it is rather informal but yet very tasteful. You don't have to walk miles to get to the beach. The hotel is stunning and the views breathtaking.

I chose AfroChic as the last leg of our honeymoon. I came expecting 5 star accommodation and service, they superseded my expectations.

Stayed in this little boutique hotel for 4 nights with my husband and our daughter and her partner. The setting is magnificent right on Diani beach yet far enough set back for absolute peace and tranquility. Well kept lush gardens, very nice pool, lovely furnishings.

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
