We were greeted by one of their lovely and attentive waiters with cocktails and cold flannels and Dominique, who quickly made us feel at home! All staff, from the owners Dominique and...

This place is Heaven on Earth! Small size, excellent service, clean and spacious rooms, and both the sea and the pool are right at your doorstep. I can't praise highly enough the serenity and peace this place brings. Friendly staff, effective management, attention to details. This place has it all. We went twice, and are going again in a month...

Asha Cottage is a lovely small family run hotel. Dominique and John, and their kids, make you feel at home the soon you step into the hotel. The fact that Asha has only 5 rooms makes it cosy and luxurious at the same time. The service is outstanding as is the food. No reason to go out and eat somewhere...

The small resort and it's staff are great. They make you feel at home. The food is better than great, it's SUPERB (our respect to the cook). The white beach and nice swiming pool, comfortable rooms, excellent service, reasonable price, kind owners. Don't forget about massage (very professional). Asha is a little slice of paradise. Couldnt ask for more.

Had a very relaxing 6 nights here. The staff were very attentive in an unobtrusive way. Food varied and good quality. Lunch taken at the Ledge was memorable with a superb view of the beach. Highly recommended for a restful holiday enjoying the sun and lovely surroundings.

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
