Alfajiri Villas, Diani Beach

The perfect complement to any safari any safari in Kenya, Alfajiri Villas overlooks Diani Beach to offer unparalleled levels of relaxation and luxury on the Kenyan coastline. A collection of just three exclusive use villas, each offering a differing perspective on a seemingly endless stretch of Indian Ocean, Alfajiri invites romantic escapism and family reunions alike. A place where your time, your space and your wishes are your own; where menus are crafted according to how you’d like the daily catch prepared and soothing massages arranged at the drop of a hat. Alfajiri is curated just for you.


A stretch of sands that many are yet to leave footprints in, Diani Beach offers all the azure-watered wonder of the Seychelles, but with a sense of having uncovered a place few others know about. At Alfajiri, pristine sands stretch five miles north and five miles south with few people other than local peddlers to encounter on your stroll. Take a direct scheduled flight straight from the Masai Mara down to Diani, with your private villa at Alfajiri just a five-minute drive from the tiny airstrip to make this bush to beach combination oh-so-easy.  Spend your days here snorkelling with whale sharks, diving, kite surfing, jet skiing with the dolphins, quad biking in the Shimba Hills and relaxing in the warmth of the African sun.

Your Room

Whether you’re a group of two, four – or a whole lot more, Alfajiri has a private space that will suit you all. Each of the three villas have their own pool, private entrance and direct access onto Diani beach as well as your own butler. For honeymooners looking for something romantic, the Cliff Villa with its 270 degree-view turret suite and private position has garnered it a reputation as one of the finest villas on the East African coast. For families, choose between the rolling lawns of the Garden Villa or the untouched sands of the Beach Villa with its gorgeous infinity pool that seemingly flows into the Indian Ocean. Or why not craft a multi-generational getaway everyone will love and take all 11 bedrooms across the three?

Why we like it

A family-run property, Alfajiri is as much about the people as it is the luxuries they shower you with. Owners Marika and Fabrizio are always on hand to help, with their love and attention to detail running throughout the villas they have individually designed. Join them for a beer on the beach or a stroll along the sands and tune into the fascinating tales of their travels thus far. It’s not just Marika and Fabrizio though, but the whole team, who will welcome you into the Alfajiri family with open arms. You can’t help but leave Alfajiri with a feeling that you’ll always have it as a home to come back to. Kick your shoes off and relax the Alfajiri way.
