Sheltered on a coral cliff, Alfajiri is a stylish retreat consisting of 3 luxurious private villas, the Alfajiri Garden Villa, the Beach Villa and the Cliff Villa.
The villas are beautifully appointed, with large verandas under high makuti roofs, large overflowing swimming pools that seem to merge with the sea and the horizon, ocra Danish floors, wooden beams, beautiful Lamu doors and unique artefacts that have been collected from all around the world.
Situated on the gorgeous Diani beach, the villas provide panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. The cuisine is mainly fresh seafood with a Mediterranean touch, accompanied by a great selection of fine wines from South Africa and Italy. Private dining is a la carte, served in the villa or al fresco.
The Cliff Villa is considered by many as one of the finest private villas on the East African coast. It has a huge veranda with hand carved sofas as well as a stretch swimming pool set on the edge of a small cliff. The Villa sleeps up to 9 guests in 4 air-conditioned bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin and 1 triple), which are all equipped with spacious ensuite bathrooms. The Villa has a separate kitchen and can be booked on exclusive basis only.
Alfajiri Garden Villa can accommodate up to 8 guests in 4 lavish double bedrooms, each with a large ensuite bathroom, air condition as well as individual and tasteful room décor.
The Beach Villa also has 4 bedrooms, of which the 2 on the ground floor and one on the first floor have air condition. The Villa is elegantly furnished reflecting a strong African influence in its interior design.
Considered one of the finest villas on the East African coast, this glamorous white-pillared house on Diani Beach provides excellent food and superlative service (the 20 staff includes nannies and butler), as well as stunning views of the Indian Ocean from its verandah and infinity pool.
The constant rhythmic surf, just meters below, is the best lullaby at night. Clear skies by day translate to star-filled night skies, all adding to the magic that is Alfajiri.
Alfajiri is a very well kept secret – one which I am only grudgingly prepared to share! Fabrizio is the making of it – huge attention to detail without intruding on a special family holiday. Excellent food, wonderful people, magical country – the height of luxury but nor ridiculous! We loved every minute!
