Stayed at Ras Kutani for 6 nights after a week on safari. The drive from Dar airport took less than 2 hours, including a fascinating short ferry trip. We were greeted with great warmth and hospitality by the charming Emil, which set the tone for the friendliness we encountered from all the staff during our stay. The bandas are perfect for the setting, open to the elements and made of natural materials, and are kept spotlessly clean. No aircon is required as there is generally a cooling on shore breeze. The food was of excellent quality and served in quantities to satisfy the largest appetite. Drinks were reasonable. Activities are limited to a nature walk around the lagoon, snorkelling or body-boarding, and those seeking nightlife should look elsewhere. Ras Kutani is an ideal place to unwind and enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings, cossetted by the delightful staff. Managers Sarah and Russell are delightful hosts and couldn't be more attentive.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This beach destination in Africa offers the visitor that increasingly rare commodity - long stretches of pristine deserted beaches, warm blue seas and an opportunity to experience the peace and tranquility long since swamped by overcrowding in more publicized tropical resorts. The setting ensures that feeling of being on one's own tropical island. The lodge is flanked by a fresh water lagoon abutting onto a coastal forest, which spills to the edge of the unspoilt and undeveloped beach. Accommodation is in nine spacious, charming cottages constructed of natural, local materials that harmonise perfectly with the wonderful surroundings. On top of the hill we have also four suites and a family house all with stunning views. ... more less
