“one word: wonderful”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I stayed at Ashiyana for two weeks and was sorry to leave! The owners, Tariq and his wife Celine, are very friendly and conscientious owners making sure that you are well cared for -- you can't find better guesthouse owners! The guesthouse is very clean and the rooms have large bathtubs which is almost unheard of in this price range -- a bathtub was definitely a selling point for me! There are both AC and non-AC rooms and the rooms have small terraces. Ashiyana just opened late 2012 and a second floor will eventually be added as well as a small buffet area for breakfasts. Ashiyana is a short walk to North Cliff, very convenient. I would absolutely stay here again!

We spend 6 nights at Ashiyana and had a great time there. It's a quiet place, just 3 minutes walk to the beach, very big rooms, european bathrooms (bathtub included), Wi-Fi, affordable prices ...

The owner (Tariq) is very helpful and always friendly - he cooked for us and had a party with all guests and his family.

I stayed at Ashiyana for 5 nights and were wery pleased. The hotel is located about 200 meters from the cliff down to the beach so its very quiet but at the same time very close to everything.
Very nice beads for india and clean as well.
The internet (Wifi) is very fast and stable.
The AC was completely new so they where perfect.
Very affordable!
