I am very glad for the excellent service and fine dining i got with my wife for my anniversary. The 5th of May was such a delight. From the exquisite meal, ambient set-up of the room and attention to detail.... we were left speechless.

Thank you for such a memorable afternoon.

My husband surprised me on our one year wedding anniversary at Afro Chic. I suspected we were going to the coast until we came to this beautiful place. The staff were so welcoming and the service was so amazing. The food was so delicious.... Aww the starter soup!!!!!Delicious. The scenery of the beach and the rooms.... Omg!! Spectacular!!! I couldn't contain myself cs everything was just so beautiful.
Thank you Afrochic for the amazing time and for even going an extra mile to ensure we had reliable transport back to the airport in Mombasa despite the flight issues we had with Jambo jet. Our stay was brief and definitely I want to plan for a longer visit there.
This is a place I will definitely recommend to anyone who wants an amazing getaway at the coast.

We stayed here for 9 nights, in between we were on safari for two nights.

The hotel is small but the more gracious. All ten rooms are of different themes (we stood in the "Simba") and very lovingly funished with some old wood and pieces of african art.

The staff is very friendly without being overly sensitive, the kitchen chief comes out for a talk with you after having dinner. The food was very tasty and in different directions from Italian to Indian to Kenyan.

The journey through Mombasa is a bit exhausting, unfortunately it has to be taken on most excursions and also from / to the airport. Directly at the hotel is the Ukunda Airstrip, where you can fly directly from Nairobi / Mobasa to avoid this.

If you want to have a relaxing holiday in a very kindly environmet, we can absolutely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ocean view is very nice

Thank you for your wonderful review!

Indeed Afrochic offers a relaxing and fun-filled holiday with a home away from home feel. We were so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and the chef is delighted that you enjoyed the different varieties of meals on offer. Chef Massoud enjoys coming out to greet his guests and ensure they are enjoying his creations, and like him, we hope we will be welcoming you again very soon!

As well as location, food, accommodation, cleanliness, pool, beach, spa etc what makes this little gem stand out is the outstanding staff. Their attention to detail and joy of making your tailor-made stay a beautiful memory is so special. Each time they remember even the smallest detail and go all out to make sure three days feel like a week. Their collective aim is to make this a special stay and they truly care. Each one of them wonderful and most being there for years showing their commitment to this exceptional team.
This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel and each time we dream of our return.
Afrochic sets standards of care I’ve not seen met anywhere I’ve stayed worldwide.

We really enjoyed AfroChic hotel. Hotel staff provided a good service, being available but not when we just enjoying sun set moment.

Rooms are nice, our room was facing ocean and what is more beautiful that looking for sun set in your own balcony?

Food was mostly very tasty and chef did his best and came to talk after meals.
