Reviewed 28 February 2013

AfroChic is far the most impressive hotels I have been to in south coast. The staff were friendly and so organized. The rooms were to die for, spacious and meticulously arranged to the last detail. I will definitely go back.. its heaven on earth.

Room Tip: Junior suite was beautiful with the view of the ocean.

Afrochic Diani is truly heaven. From the moment we arrived and were greeted, not at a reception desk, but seated on beautiful couches, given iced-water, lavender soaked wash towels, and served fresh-squeezed passion fruit juice, everything was perfect. Every room is spacious, beautifully decorated and meticulously clean. We enjoyed massages in our room, but, for the most part, we spent our days on the large, wonderfully comfortable, beds under canopies that look out over the pristine Indian Ocean. The service is impeccable. And just when you don't think it can get any better, the food is some of the best we've experienced anywhere in the world. I only wish we had stayed longer.

Room Tip: The garden room has only a small balcony - not facing the ocean - and may be noisy as it's at th...

This is one of the best hotels we've stayed at in Mombasa! The staff is very friendly and helpful! The chefs are very good - they can make for you whatever you need! The ambience is amazing! Loved the swing beds by the beach! The rooms were great! Overall we absolutely loved it! We's definately go back to Afro Chic whenever we go to Mombasa!

This is our kind of hotel:-). Travelled there for our honeymoon and it was simply exquisite. We had a lovely room overlooking the beach. The property is beautiful especially at night time when the lights are switched on. We loved the 'no set meal time', the wonderful staff - Zipporah, Fiah, Norman, the amazing chefs who made unbelievably great food. Thank you for a wonderful time and a divine honeymoon:-). We shall certainly be back, severally:-).

From the moment you step into the lobby reception - the light coloured upholstery, wood furnishings, unique art pieces, and interesting decorative items all ooze style!

The lobby flows out onto the veranda where a stunning pool invites you to step in, as you can hear the miniature waterfall cascade into the shallow end. There is also a small rock pool which is an extension of the main pool..its very pleasaing on your eyes!

The smiling receptionist ushered me in, and the pleasant waiter served glasses of champagne and fruit juice..this is even before I got to be mesmerized by the 'Zanzibar' room!

This junior suite is located right on the top floor, so keep this in mind ... one does have to walk up stairs and quaint corridoors. Sliding windows overlooking the palm tops into the azure ocean, lead out to a small balcony allowed for one sun-bed and a chair with a coffee table.

The main room is the bedroom and its huge with double door wooden cupboards, a safe, a dressing table with chair, cushion-filled divan, full length mirror, air-conditioning (that really kicks in the cool air), tv, dvd, kettle, mini bar, 2 chairs and a coffee table which has a fruit platter on your day of arrival.

... And the biggest bed in the world (well maybe not ... but its a huge king size-extra long) with a stunning wooden carved headboard.

Then ...... there is a wooden stairwell that takes you up to another level in the same room where another divan and huge lamp sit. Carpets and cushions are arranged throughout the room which gives it a very nice feel - after all this is laid-back luxury at its best!

Bathroom had a big sink and expanse of mirror, alongside a jacuzzi bathtub with 2 brandy glasses filled with pebbles and tealight candles.. a walk-in shower, toilet by the window so you have a view.....and boudoir.

I was told it was to be refurbished but all was very functional, if perhaps only the shower curtain which gave a slight dated look. The towels are fluffy and they stock an eco-friendly range of toiletries with robes hanging behind the door. Water pressure is excellent and plenty of hot water (remember if you want a shower mid-day then you need to switch it on - switch is outside the room along the corridoor).

A small bottle of complementary mineral water is availed daily.

You can spend your morning pouring over the menu incase you don't have a book (there is a collection of books and dvd's from reception by the way and a laptop with wireless connection available for your use in the lobby - incase you need to google certain ingredients!). Cuisine is prepared freshly which is why they don't really mind when you eat - but you must choose what you want to eat in good time.
All palates are catered for here and every dish I ordered was a feast for the senses - only telling you my favourite was infact a starter: calamari & beetroot salad and the best dessert: passion fruit sorbet that refreshed me from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet! you can eat anywhere you want..from the sun lounges to the dining area - inside or out..or even in the luxury of your room!
Beverages are priced on the higher side so bear this in mind, but they have almost anything you want to quench your thirst here!

Service of this established really impressed me for Kenyan standards which is generally mediocre at its best - smiling faces, quick steps and a great team spirit amongst the staff was very noticeable. The manager is down-to-earth , knowledgeable not to mention charming. I felt very comfortable and looked after despite travelling on my own!

It is a small hotel but it is well laid out with private sun lounges and beds with swings enhancing privacy ; the grounds are well maintained. For some peace and quiet - to put on a little weight and swim it off with all the luxuries of home and more... this is certainly the place to visit!

Enjoyed the in-house massage services - done in a simple but calm room. Good quality products used, zen-like music in the backround and a glass of water is served afterwards.

They arrange for airport transfers and well knowledgeable about places/shops to see and visit - if you can pull yourself away from AfroChic.

For me ... my favourite spot was the sparkling swimming pool - enjoying the view of the gardens and the ocean in the distance with jacuzzi bubbles jetting around whilst sipping freshly picked 'madafu' (coconut water)!

Room Tip: zanzibar is pure luxury - with a good view and very spacious. balcony area is small though. rememb...
