What a paradise it is at Ras Kutani. Situated at the Indian Ocean and a fresh water lagoon with a forest it is very well located with an... More

My wife and I just came from a two-day stay at Ras Kutani. It was our first time there and my wife was celebrating her 48th birthday. The staff are dedicated and very friendly. They prepared a delicious cake (complimentary) for her and we all sang Happy Birthday. It was very good. The hotel is in a very secluded, relaxing-inducing... More

Ras Kutani is a magical place, the perfect place to unwind after safari adventures or a peaceful retreat for locals needing a break from the hubub of dar. The beach is pristine and without hawkers, a common blight on the beaches of nearby Zanzibar. The property itself is beautiful and the accomodations truly lovely--we adored our two hammocks, porch overlooking... More

Where do I begin? My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this beautiful place. It's hard to put into words (although I'll try), but this place is just special. It takes you away from whatever craziness you have in your life and makes you appreciate the little beauties around you. From the moment we arrived, the service... More

After visiting Siwandu & Jongomero we completed the set by having 4 nights here and it really is the perfect place to relax for a few days. It's not the place for anyone looking for loads of activity or adventure as it's more about escaping and relaxing but there was still enough to do for a few days. We had... More

We had one of the best holidays we've ever had. Lovely people, shilled atmosphere, beautiful beach, great food. Our kids were kept busy swimming, playing a local game called " bow", snorkelling and looking for crabs. They can survive with minimal Internet ...... Yeh. Thank you to all the amazing staff for making this such a memorable holiday.
