Fabulous place to end our honeymoon after an active time at Kichwa Tembo in the Masai Mara. The area has been hit hard by recent Kenyan events but that did not stop Afrochic from pulling out all the stops. We were greeted with passion fruit mimosas and the trip kept getting better from there! The food was out of this...

After our first night, we were lucky to get a free upgrade to the suite - spacious, with a large bathroom, and terrace with a perfect view of the ocean (although it seemed that the building was located in such...

A well appointed boutique hotel with a wonderfully warm team. Richard the manager on hand to receive you and ensure your stay is most comfortable. Nice beach. Loved the beach side beds for the lazy afternoons. Our room -Punda Milia - was most tasteful. Enjoyed the concept of dining at your own time. And no room service charges! Nice. We...

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
