Afro Chic

Kenya Coast & Lamu Kenya

Afro Chic is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Richard Johnson and his team have a real ethos of personal but unobtrusive service which just doesn't exist any more in Europe. As well as Richard, I'd particularly like to mention Donald and Fiah who really brightened my stay by talking at length about ordinary life in the Diani area. The food, setting and service are amazing and I have never enjoyed a hotel stay so much. The only slight issue is that you are certain to be surrounded by beach boys trying to sell you stuff as soon as you step of the hotel grounds on to the beach, but this is not a problem as long as you're firm with them, and is something you are likely to experience anywhere in this area. When my transfer to the next hotel didn't turn up, Richard personally drove me over to Msambweni - how's that for service!?
