Some destinations are timeless; others are often well kept secrets. On the South coast of Kenya’s coastline, on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, lies Afrochic Diani – the perfect getaway for the discerning traveller who wants to simply ‘flop and drop’ and enjoy the spectacular views of exotic and ancient dhows in full sail.
Afro Chic resort is nestled amongst coconut palms and tropical trees. With only ten en-suite rooms, the hotel offers exclusivity and a personal touch to your stay. Each of the en-suite rooms are air-conditioned, have lounge seats on the verandas and an African-inspired eclectic décor with modern amenities. Meals are served Al Fresco by the free-form swimming pool with a rock fountain, with options for private dining.
Miles of expansive and near deserted beaches await discovery, and for those who wish a more active way to spend the day, an 18 hole Championship Golf Course is within three minutes drive from the hotel. Local boutiques, spas, and craft markets are a short ride away, and day trips to Shimba Hills Reserve and Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary add to the Kenyan coastal experience.
I was so lucky to have experienced this little piece of heaven what a personable boutique hotel.
