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"...

Dear Imran Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at AfroChic. A holiday should, I believe, result in one feeling noticeably rested and rejuvenated. I hope that this is what you felt after your "escape" with us. It is rewarding to know that you enjoyed the various aspects of services and offerings. I have shown the...

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. We didn't imagine we could have such a fun and restful experience at a hotel with our 5 year old and 2 year old kids, but everyone at Afrochic made sure we...

The service was good, but as we were a small family I felt we got forgotten as the larger groups over shadowed us. A couple of times the dishes we had ordered came with other things than we were expecting and we were only informed after the dish had been placed on our table and we had to ask why...

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
