Me and my partner had a pleasure to stay in Asha Cottage in mid May. It's a pieceful place where you can recover your body and soul. Thanks to David, Lara and all the personnel - it was amazing time. I felt like I'm visiting friends while I was there because of hospitality of people living and working there.

Despite the FCO warning we decided to still go ahead with our holiday last week, and so glad we did. Asha cottages is like staying at a great friend's house. Staff were attentive, friendly and accommodating. We feasted like kings on a ray of lobster, king prawns, crab and calamari salads. Weather permitting do ask for a BBQ near the... More

I spent a week at Asha on my own in March 2014. It was one of the best low-key, comfortable, and classy places I have stayed at (and I've stayed in many). I felt very comfortable on my own, the service was very friendly and efficient, but not overbearing, and the food excellent. I really appreciated the personal atmosphere in... More

We stayed three nights in Asha during the Easter holiday. We really enjoyed our stay! The moment I arrived there, it felt like another world! The room is clean, beautifully presented, and the staff are really helpful! The food there is really delicious too. We had lobsters, king prawns, and all kinds of seafood during our stay, and really enjoyed... More

After some sour experiences in Diani I decided to have a look at trip advisor on which Asha Cottage came highly recommended. I was planning to stay elsewhere that night, but thought I'd pop in to have a look in case it changed my mind. Greeted at the gate by Dominique - once we finally found the property - I... More

Asha cottages is an absolute treasure. The location is obviously amazing and they have made the most of it. Rooms are spacious, luxurious and really very well finished. Most memorable however is the welcome and service you will receive from Dominique and all the staff. It was the most relaxing and pleasant few days I can remember.

Our first visit but definitely not our last! We were made to feel so welcome not only by the hosts David, Lowra, John and Dominique but also by their excellent team, all so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. 6 comfortable rooms, pool, delicious dining and a lovely "ledge" overlooking the stunning beach with nearby kitesurfing centres to...

It really is a wonderful place, with truly lovely staff, most of whom have been there since our first visit in 2008. Some are newer, ie David & Lara, the managers that... More

My husband and I had such an amazing stay at Asha Cottage. The beach was beautiful, the food was delicious, the room was very comfortable, the staff members were lovely; we could not have asked for a better, more relaxing trip. I would recommend taking a flight to the local airstrip rather than driving from the Mombasa airport to Diani.... More
