AfroChic Diani Beach is a contemporary boutique hotel belonging to the Elewana Collection, a portfolio of high end properties throughout both Kenya and Tanzania. Approximately two hours’ drive from Mombasa and only 15 minutes from Ukunda Airport, the hotel is located at the northern end of the stunning Diani Beach, southern Kenya.
The main building comprises reception area, indoor lounge and dining area. Outside is a very pleasant terrace overlooking the hotel’s large swimming pool, and landscaped lawns lead to a private section of white sand beach, fringed by the Indian Ocean.
Mealtimes are extremely flexible with à la carte menus offering European, Indian and Swahili cuisine. A choice of locations includes individual table service either in the dining room, in the pretty gardens, or on the beach. Private dining can also be accommodated.
There are plenty of activities to choose from, including kayaking, kite surfing, and windsurfing. Snorkelling excursions are available to Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park, famed for its dramatic coral formations and diverse marine life, and reef tours with local fishermen can also be arranged. The local PADI dive centre offers scuba tuition for beginners, and boat excursions for more experienced divers. Land based activities include game drives to Shimba Hills Nature Reserve, home to elephants, leopards and the rare sable antelope, and visits to the Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary, and the historic and atmospheric Mombasa Island. Massages and beauty treatments can be booked at the hotel, and there’s a fabulous tropical golf course located just a few minutes’ away.
The accommodation comprises eight guest rooms and two suites, all individually designed with eclectic, African themes. Each of the eight double rooms accommodates a maximum of two guests. The Junior Suite contains one double bed and one single, whilst the larger Executive Suite houses two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with a single. All units have an ensuite bathroom with either bath or shower, along with air conditioning, ceiling fan, mini-bar, TV and DVD player, and safe. Each unit boasts a private balcony with superb ocean or garden views.
Children are most welcome at the hotel, and the two suites are particularly suited to families. Under 12s are accommodated free of charge, and there are discounts for children under 18 years of age. A babysitting service can be arranged.
AfroChic Diani Beach offers intimate, tranquil accommodation and attentive service in an idyllic beachfront location. The hotel will appeal to travellers in search of a good variety of activities combined with simple relaxation in a beautiful setting.
We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.
Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.

We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.
Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.
Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.
Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!
One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.
Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

I had just the most incredible time on the climb.
The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.
George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.
