About Alfajiri Garden Villa

Alfajiri Garden Villa overlooks the Indian Ocean and the elevated position ensures privacy and stunning views of Diani Beach, considered one of the best in Kenya, where it is possible to walk for 5 miles in either direction. Large main veranda under a massive makuti roof, ocra Danish floors, wooden beams, Lamu doors and impressive artefacts all reflect the outstanding attention to detail and high standard of interior design, most of the furniture is made in the family-run workshop. Your private infinity swimming pool sits right in front of your veranda merging into the sea and the horizon. Private dining is a la carte, served al fresco or in your villa. All meals are included, served daily at each villa, and all drinks including local and imported brands of alcohol.

Eight guests can be accommodated in four large luxuriously appointed double bedrooms each with their own large bathrooms, all rooms overlook the Indian Ocean. The rooms are air-conditioned with split-level units and mosquito nets. All rooms have different interior decoration; the furniture and artefacts have been collected in different countries around the world.

Discreet service from 25 experienced staff as and when required. Alfajiri won the 2002 Harpers and Queen award for the private villa providing the best service worldwide.

Fresh seafood is brought daily to order from the beach and includes some of the best crab, prawns, lobsters, octopus and sea fish available. The menus have a Mediterranean influence, olive oils, Parma ham and some cheeses are flown in weekly from Europe. The salads and fresh vegetables come daily from local farms and the fruit is hand picked from trees and bushes around Diani. The Molinaro's will adapt menus to suit the guests. The villa also has a large choice of good quality South African and Italian wines available.

The house is owned and hosted by Fabrizio Molinaro and his wife Marika. After completing medical school in Italy, Fabrizio has spent the last 25 years in Kenya in the safari business and travelling the world. Marika was in the fashion business for many years and she is now an interior designer for some of Kenyas most luxurious houses. The butlers speak English, French and Italian.
