We spent 6 nights at AfroChic in December 2011. We had planned the trip a few months prior, and were excited to get away to Mombasa's south coast, an area we had both been before (at a different hotel) and had enjoyed for its gorgeous beaches, warm blue water and laid-back feel. Our expectations were greatly exceeded from the moment we landed at the Diani air strip and were greeted with cool lavender-scented towels by the AfroChic hotel driver.

When we arrived, we experienced the most low-key and relaxing check-in, with a welcome drink by the pool. Stephan, the GM, introduced us to the hotel, its amenities and services. Our room - with a 20' ceiling - was amazing. We highly recommend the Zanzibar suite - great vantage point to view the beach/ocean from the balcony, luxurious Swahili furniture, and an added bonus - an upper-level loft with daybed. Each room is simply and beautifully decorated with a different African theme, and the common areas are elegantly and comfortably furnished.

We were introduced to different members of the hotel staff, all of whom were truly exceptional, anticipating our every need in a way that felt natural and unintrusive. Zipporah was always gracious and helpful; she helped plan day excursions for us, including a visit to the Colobus Monkey Trust. Norman, Donald and Lucas helped make the meals unforgettable. And Betty is simply wonderful.

It's hard to say what part of the experience was the best. As beautiful as the hotel is, and as attentive as the service is, the food rivals both - just superb every time. There's an extensive menu, and we tried different items every day. The staff takes your order in advance and lets you decide where you want to eat - in the treehouse, by the pool, at the covered terrace, etc. We loved all the seafood dishes, as well as the African specialties (the matoke was great); the desserts were delicious (the passion fruit sorbet was out of this world). Even the morning fruit platter was special.

We spent most of our time lounging on the extra-large daybeds on the private beach (slightly elevated above the main beach). We enjoyed the pool as well as its adjoining spa, even at night.

We highly recommend AfroChic and feel it deserves all the awards and recognition it has recently received. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Top-floor rooms have the best views.

My husband and I spent five days at AfroChic last month. They nearly had to drag us out of there. We didn't want to leave. We were pampered from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Stephan, Zipporah and the staff are amazing. The design and decor in this small, boutique hotel are gorgeous. We were in the Punda Milia (zebra) suite. It was huge and plush, complete with california king bed (it felt like my husband was clean on the other side of the room), a built in chaise lounge/day bed, gigantic bathroom with jacuzzi tub, plus a large sunroom with a huge day bed and two comfortable overstuffed chairs. A great thing about this hotel is the intricate, hand-carved furniture and fittings. It's all so beautiful that I found myself wondering how I could carry it home with me. We had a huge balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. It was a great place to relax in the morning.

Let's talk about the food. They let you choose what you want to eat, when you want to eat it, and where you want to eat it. You want tuna carpaccio, avocado salad, sesame crusted snapper with vegetables, and a chocolate brownie, poolside at 1:30pm. No problem. The food selection is a wonderful. I tried to eat something different for every meal. But I did return to the tuna carpaccio and cashew icecream on several occassions. They were just that good. The kitchen staff was even kind enough to pack us fresh fruits and baked breads for our trip home, as we had to depart at 3am.

The beach is calm and warm. We hung out in the water for hours (until the tide retreated so far that you could walk out 700 yards or more before touching water). We spent the day reading, relaxing, and napping on AfroChic's huge swing beds by the beach. They're big enough for the whole family.

We will definitely return, and bring friends!

When we decided to book Afrochic for our december break we were taking a bet on our holiday . As it turned out ,that was to be the best decision we have made in selecting a hotel in mombasa . The small boutique is unigue and pleasant making it a home away from home. The staff are fantastic and the food is incredible . We did not want to leave after 5 nights of total relaxation and great food. Please do not change a thing ...........We shall be back soon !
