Gem of a resort on Kenyan coast!!
We stayed at AfroChic for 5 days, this past August, after our 10 day safari. We have been on many safaris to Kenya but it was the first time we decided to fly down to the coast after and relax, before flying home. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful AfroChic was. The people are fantastic that work there, The food was great. We stayed on the top floor in the "zebra" room. It was absolutely beautiful and the views were first class. I even went on a deep sea fishing trip, caught a 25 lb Dorado (Mahi Mahi), brought it back to the Chef and he cooked up the most fantastic macadamia encrusted Mahi We ever had. It was better than any Mahi we have had in Hawaii. I told the Chef to feed his crew with the rest. We had such a great time there with all the staff. A BIG SHOUTOUT TO OUR WAITER DONALD, THE BEST DANCER IN KENYA!!! Jan and I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for first class accommodations, service and highly motivated staff.
Wonderful Beachfront Hotel
We stayed at AfroChic Diani Beach at the end of our safari itinerary on our honeymoon. It was an excellent way to unwind and relax at the end of the trip. The property is beautiful and incredibly well decorated - our room was also very comfortable and spacious - each room also has an outdoor deck space. The hotel is relatively small (ten rooms) which enables a really quiet and peaceful atmosphere throughout the day and night with ample seating & daybeds for all guests and wonderful warm and attentive service from all the amazing employees as well (including coordinating activities, spa, transport, etc.). Meals were also amazing - the dinner menu is made to order and covers an extensive menu. The beach is world-class and great for a swim, particularly at high-tide. As others mention, the beach boys can be a bit overwhelming at times - particularly in that they will often see you walk into the water and then wait for you on the beach, so that the second you start to walk back to the property they can intercept you. Outside of this behavior though, they were all friendly, welcoming and respectful, and excited to see travelers returning to their community since the impacts of the pandemic.
A piece of Paradise in Kenya
I visited Afro Chic after 12 days of staying in tented safari camps. I spent two and one-days watching the ocean. The resort is fabulous with warm, accommodating staff and lovely rooms. The restaurant is excellent with a very friendly chef. Ian, the receptionist, was very helpful in securing my hard copies of papers needed to leave Kenya. He also found my Tusker bottle caps. Thank you. Donald, a waiter, was always smiling and willing to serve as needed. Thank you. The grounds are immaculate with numerous plants, trees and flowers. The only downer was The Beach Boys. They were young men roaming the beach looking to sell most anything. Very polite but also very persistent. There was a security guard to insure they weren’t too troublesome. A wonderful way to finish a trip to beautiful Kenya. Highly recommended.
Relax On The Beach
Super friendly and helpful staff. Food is excellent. Menu covers Indian and Swahili cuisine. Postcard view from the room, dining area and pool area. Grounds are immaculate. Security guard is always on duty for walks on the beach at any time. VERY SAFE! You can arrange day trips of Shimba Hills, shopping (we took the tuktuk into town to shop, so fun), dhow cruise, snorkeling, Mombasa city tour, etc. at the property. Laundry service is available. Paradise on the beach!
A really lovely place
We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at AftoChic. We were the only guests and were treated with such warm hospitality. All of the team are an assist to the Elewana brand and went out of their way to ensure that we were well looked after. We had our three month old baby with us and they were great at working around his naps etc. The food was all fresh, plentiful and delicious. There was huge variety on the menu too. The room was kept very clean and the pool and main areas were great too. Thank you very much we hope that we can come and visit again soon.
