South of Mombasa, set right on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, AfroChic represents a perfect getaway for discerning travellers wanting nothing more than to ‘fly and flop’ amid spectacular views. With just ten rooms and a lovely pool, the hotel is intimate and personable; you can walk straight from your room onto the white sand
Exotic, ancient dhows will sail across the Indian Ocean in front of you. Diani’s ten, palm-fringed miles, some near-deserted, await discovery, while those craving a more active day can visit an 18-hole championship golf course within three minutes’ drive. Local boutiques, spas, and craft markets are also only a short ride away, and day-trips to the Shimba Hills National Reserve or Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary are easily arranged.
