The perfect complement to any safari across the plains of the Maasai Mara, Alfajiri speckles Diani Beach to offer unparalleled levels of relaxation and luxury on the Kenyan coastline. A collection of just three 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. An easy one hour drive from Mombasa and a two and a half hour flight down from the Mara, spend your days here snorkelling with whale sharks, quad biking in the Shimba Hills and relaxing in the warmth of the African sun.
Whether you’re a group of two, four – or a whole lot more, Alfajiri has a space that will suit you all. 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 12 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.
