Elewana AfroChic Diani Beach sits on one of the world’s best beaches, on the migratory route for humpback whales and dolphins, and is protected by a coral reef known for its colorful sea life. From snorkeling and deep-sea fishing to sky diving and quad bike safaris, Diani Beach offers something for all travel tastes and interests.

Recognizing the value of time well spent with family and friends, the Elewana Collection introduces discerning travelers to East Africa through impeccably designed lodges that invite true relaxation, as well as the thrill of a real adventure. Complementing their locations in prime game-viewing areas, on quiet white-sand beaches or even in a coffee plantation, are lavish comforts, including fresh cotton sheets, elegant rooms and gourmet meals. Family-friendly, individually styled and exuding warm and personalized hospitality, the lodges are a savvy blend of high-class safari and low-impact tourism. Guests are encouraged to become part of the local community and conservation projects, thereby returning home with a piece of East Africa instilled in their hearts forever.

Accommodations

Ten uniquely styled rooms await guests at AfroChic Diani Beach, each with an Indian Ocean or garden view and outfitted with coastal furniture and fabrics. All rooms are air conditioned and offer a stocked mini bar. As a whole, the accommodations feel akin to a large, Mediterranean-style family villa, where guests may relax together or separately on individual balconies, in the crystal-clear pool or in public lounges dotted with soft furnishings and African artifacts.

Amenities

Dedicated “AfroChicers” return time and time again to the resort, earning itself a reputation as a “home away from home,” where one can fully relax while taking advantage of world-class amenities in a gorgeous natural setting. Accommodations have direct beach access, free WiFi is available in all rooms, and there is a spa, book and DVD library (to complement the in-room entertainment systems) and a gift shop.

Activities

The sea is the shining star at AfroChic Diani Beach, and guests may venture out for snorkeling or scuba expeditions or on a glass-bottom boat to view the kaleidoscopic sea life. Diversions include wind surfing, kite surfing, dolphin safaris, camel riding on the beach, golf at a nearby 18-hole championship course and day trips to Kisite Marine National Park, Funzi Island, Shimba Hills Reserve (home of the elusive Sable antelope) and the Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary. Of course, there’s always the opportunity to simply sit back under an umbrella on the beach, relishing in a state of pure relaxation. Diani Beach serves as a vital breeding ground for the Green Sea Turtle, and guests may have the chance to see a turtle hatching.

Dining

Dining at AfroChic is as individual as the guests who arrive at its powder-white, sandy shores. An à la carte menu is available, with European and Asian flair and a subtle Swahili influence. Meals are served at the location and time of guests’ choosing, including beachside, poolside, in the lush gardens and on the terrace. Seafood is sourced especially for the dish being created, so diners are encouraged to order at least an hour and a half in advance. An extensive wine list complements the menu. A children’s menu caters to the youngest guests.

Location

Elewana AfroChic Diani Beach is in East Africa, a 15-minute drive from Ukunda Airport, which is a one-hour flight from Nairobi. The Moi Airport in Mombasa is a 90-minue drive from the hotel, via the Likoni Ferry. The resort coordinates are S04˚16’ 18” E39˚35’50.24”.
