Alfajiri: The Lowdown

Extraordinary Africa>Kenya>Kenya Coast>Alfajiri

Alfajiri is a collection of three incredibly stylish, laid-back villas on ravishing Diani beach. All of the villas are decorated with effortless, laid-back chic, and are entirely self-contained and private, but owners Fabrizio and Marica are on hand to make sure your stay is flawless.

What’s Alfajiri really like?

Each of the three villas has its own character. Cliff Villa’s decorated in a mixture of African and Asian styles, and sits perched right on the edge of the cliff. It has four rooms and sleeps up to 8, though because the rooms vary wildly in style and size, we’d definitely say this is better for a family than four couples. The turret suite has the real wow factor, then there are two further double rooms and a twin on the ground floor.

Garden villa sleeps up to 10 guests in four bedrooms (three doubles and a twin), all overlooking the ocean. As all room are a similar size this could work well for four couples travelling together.

Lastly sweet little Beach Villa, tucked away amongst the palm trees, has a more African flavour, would work well for a family or honeymooners hiding away in total privacy- it has two double rooms and a twin (all three are air-conditioned) then a further double with no air-conditioning.

Each villa has its own pool, top quality discreet service and scrumptious food and wine which make the most of the local seafood and reflects Fabrizio’s Italian background.  There are two nannies on hand for families (just let us know in advance) and the staff really do their utmost to make your stay effortlessly magical.

What can I do at Alfajiri?

One of the things we love about being in Diani is that should you wish to go out and about in the evenings this is certainly an option, and Alfajiri can help arrange transfers for you. They can also book massages, organise snorkelling out on the coral reef in a traditional ngalawa, and take you on visits to local villages and community projects. For an extra fee, you can do diving, play on the nearby 18 hole championship golf course, kite surfing at the nearby school, dhow trips out to the marine park, and deep sea fishing.
