AfroChic is a beautiful and quaint small family friendly hotel! The welcome by Richard and his staff was very friendly which made us feel at home immediately. The great thing about AfroChic is life is scheduled around each individual guest with no set meal times. With only 10 rooms you never felt your were surrounded by too many guests. During... More

I'd been curious about AfroChic for a long time and finally got a chance to visit. It's not perfect, but it is quite charming. 1) Diani Beach: Diani beach is beautiful - the beach stretches on forever and the ocean is Caribbean blue. However, it's difficult to enjoy it. As soon as you walk out of the hotel property, you... More

This place is really a boutique hotel tucked away on the South Coast of Mombasa. I felt at ease and comfortable and relaxed here. Everything is at arms length. I mean the rooms and the pool and the beach are just there, almost merging together and nestled enough to feel private at the same time. The sandy beach was clean... More

Situated on the white sands of the sparkling Diani Beach, AfroChic dazzles with views of exotic, ancient dhows in full sail. 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
