My wife and I were fortunate to secure a last minute booking for 4 nights in February 2012. From our arrival and warm, personal greeting, complete with a smart salute from Suliman at the entrance, we knew we were somewhere very special. The place is quiet and intimate and ideal for those who prefer intimacy over activity. We were beautifully...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Asha Cottage at the end of a 3 week trip in Tanzania. Our 200km trip from Tanzania and across the border was long, tense and unpleasant and when we arrived at Asha Cottage the whole experience became forgotten. We were greeted by Dominique who is professional, yet welcoming and charming and quickly...

My husband and I stayed 6 nights in Asha Cottage last February 2012. We didn't want to stay in a big hotel and Asha Cottage corresponded perfectly to what we were waiting for: refined, warm, peaceful and charming place. The owners were so helpful and welcoming hosts, as well as all the staff! We felt like "at home"! The food...

Service, location, food and staff are just excellent. One of the best places ever. Besides, the part of the beach in front of the cottages is the best of all Diani beach as for tides, absence of rocks and seaweeds. It is a little piece of paradise on earth. More than 3 nights it is really worth it in order...

My husband & I stayed at Asha Cottages for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon. The room was clean and beautifully decorated.

We spent the first few nights at Asha Cottage as part of our honeymoon in September 2011 - it's such a special place, a calm and peaceful oasis.

My husband and I recently enjoyed a nine-night stay at Asha Cottage and it was everything we hoped for after a fantastic but busy safari. From the moment we arrived we felt completely at home, and any worries about a guest house feeling too intrusive instantly disappeared.

My husband and I stayed at the Asha Cottages recently and it was wonderful. The location is very convenient- only a 5 minute drive from the Diani airport and the owners will arrange round trip transportation for a small fee. There are only 5 cottages but they have everything you would need including air conditioning (although it may go off...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Diani Blue is a charmingly small, intimate and exclusive beach lodge, lapped by the waters of the Indian Ocean. Ideally located on Diani Beach, which was recently voted the 'Best Beach' in Africa by the 'Oscars of the travel industry', Diani Blue features just six spacious Swahili-style rooms (all with AC) clustered around a central pool and overlooking the silver-white sands of Diani Beach. The palm shaded beach restaurant - The Edge offers the perfect dining spot overlooking the Indian ocean, well re known for the piquancy of its cuisine - a fusion of Swahili exoticism and Italian Pazzazz. ... more   less
