We fell in love with Ras Kutani, an absolute haven. If you want a rustic experience without compromising on 5 star hotel service this is the place for you. Marc, the manager, cannot do enough for you along with his wonderfully attentive, clever and fun staff. Mark and I enjoyed a great Christmas break here after spending time at the Selous Safari Camp which also lived up to the group's extremely high standards - in fact the reason why we checked out of our 5 star well known hotel in Zanzibar to go to Ras Kutani (another story all about building works, poor service and blooming awful food!)
I note one negative review about RK being dirty, pulling up the hessian carpets to find bugs etc. It is certainly not dirty. Our accommodation was perfectly looked after and was nothing but perfect paradise. Marc upgraded us to suite with plunge pool but in all honesty we loved our cottage just as much on the first night with the hammocks as we did the suite.
No need to take shoes or even flip flops, we went for Christmas dinner in our bare feet, as we did for all of our stay - very refreshing.
Very jealous if you decide to go soon. We certainly plan to go back after our planned adventures in South America - any recommendations welcome,
- 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
