AfroChic is a hidden gem in Diani. We've visited Diani on several occasions but AfroChic was a wonderful surprise! It's a small boutique hotel and is just absolutely beautiful!

Apart from the location and beautiful surroundings, the staff at AfroChic are the ones that are the "cherry on top"! Attentive, efficient, fun and just beautiful people.

The food is delicious and nothing feels rushed...just total relaxation under the palm trees of Diani.

We had a pleasant stay at Afrochic recently. We were given a warm welcome & an easy check in process.
The boutique hotel is very cosy & superb service by the team there. The room is well equipped with all the amenities & great view of the sea.
The food is just outstanding & must say we have had the best food ever in Diani. The chef was amazing & would also go out of the way to make food off the menu.
Well done & thank you to Afrochic & their team !!!! We shall meet soon again.

Dear Kunj,

Our memories of your stay with the family are still very fresh in our minds. All of the staff enjoyed your jubilant and engaging character. We appreciate your mention of Chef Masudi and his kitchen brigade.

We are thrilled to hear that you will be coming back soon, we await your return.

With warmest wishes

The best part was the chef. He cooked up amazing food, and catering to some of our more idiosyncratic requests. We did not stray from seafood and vegetarian options, and in the latter there was some of the better Indian food I've tasted.

The rest of the staff were decent. They tried their best but there were obvious gaps in their professionalism. The welcome to the hotel was slightly awkward and left us feeling unsure what to do. Waiter service was ok, but not great. We were a large group, so I can understand that creates complexity for what seemed to be an understaffed hotel (because of covid, I expect).

There are really no facilities at the hotel other than beds by the small pool and beds overlooking the ocean. Even the board detailing tides and activities seemed to be stuck on a day long past. So if you like some activity in your vacation, you may want to look elsewhere. If you want to be lazy and do nothing, this could be a good place. The beach is a public beach, and you can try to negotiate activities with some of the beach boys - mangrove forest canoe trip, glass boat, camel rides, etc.

The rooms are very nice. No need to get an ocean view room unless you plan to spend time in your room instead of on the beach or by the pool. Wifi was pretty good everywhere.

Room tip: You likely will spend very little time in an ocean view room. Maybe worth it if you like to see the ocean upon waking up in the morning.

Had recently stayed at Afrochic for 4 nights with a large group of friends and children. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience (rooms, food, hospitality and service from staff). No disappointments at all to share. All positive comments and would definitely like to come with my family and friends again. Keep up the great work!!

I'm in the process of writing to Tripadvisor to arrange for a 6th star! Thank you for acknowledging the COVID-19 protocols that we've put in place; we are trying our utmost to ensure the safety of our staff and guests. I'll let the kitchen know about the food and the rest of our staff know that you found them friendly and accommodating. We're all waiting for your return.

Warmest regards
