Asha Cottage is a small, owner-managed, guesthouse with just six rooms, all of which face onto the small, landscaped pool area. Run as a family business by Dominique De Bonis-Cosgrove and husband John Cosgrove, it concentrates on providing a very personal, low-key service to guests who actively want to avoid large resort hotels but still want to be in the heart of Diani Beach.
Our view of Asha Cottage
With 22 staff – almost two per guest – Asha Cottage achieves high levels of personal attention, offset by relatively modest accommodation and meals. We really admire its work in the community, the investment in its staff, and its supply chain and environmental ethics. One of the most appealing and personable properties on Diani Beach, Asha Cottage is very much a family home rather than a family hotel, and guests will feel most at home if they are solos or couples. However, its affordability, size and appeal to the local market mean that it needs to be booked well in advance.
