We stayed here for my friends birthday for fours days, what it started with some challenges in terms of the cottage we had been given was changed by their great Manager Mr. Francis.

Shambani Cottages is a great place in this little paradise place of Diani Beach. The cottage I had was very clean, quiet and the whole team is just willing to help any time. I enjoyed my time there and would definitely recommend this place for your stay at Diani!

Lovely cottages, fantastic service, the beach is seconds away and they have a great pool to cool down in. There really isn't much else to say: this place is a lovely little gem perfect for small or big groups.

My family and I stayed in the Colobus Cottage. Roomy cottage with a large garden for the kids to play football in. It was magical listening to the sound of the ocean as we fell asleep. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. We are definitely coming back!!

Thank you so so much for the great hospitality extended to us during our stay at Shambani Cottages over the Easter weekend.

We were 12 Dec 2014 - 19 Dec 2014, the Baobab Villa was excellent! But we didn't exspect that 1-bedroom Twiga Cottage has no condition.

“Shambani Cottages have 1 bedroom cottages, 2 bedrooms cottages and 3 bedroom cottages. We stayed in Flamboyant cottage which is 2 bedroom one bedroom was downstairs and the other bedroom was upstairs. Both bedrooms were en-suite. The living room is spacious with plenty of natural lighting during the day. Upstairs there balconies are spacious enough for relaxing and have an area for outside dining. There is also an open roof deck for sunbathing.”
