“Excellent option pre or post safari”
Reviewed July 11, 2006

After a 10 hour overnight flight from London we were booked into Ras Kutani for a couple of nights to recharge the batteries and wind down from busy lives at home. I can't think of a better choice.

Just 2 hours by road and a 10 minute flight from Dar (we were driven by the way and it was fine) this small boutique hotel on the Indian Ocean nestled around a lagoon was perfect.

Our large cabana was open to the breeze and had about the biggest bed I have ever seen. At the front was a large and comfortable verandah looking out to sea from where we lay in hammocks and watched the sun set. It's also where monkeys gathered every morning to try and steal the breakfast that had been delivered! Amazing.

The resort feels private and intimate and the staff were friendly and accommodating. It felt like nothing was too much, including a fantastic dinner on the beach on our last night.

The food was excellent and a wonderful flag system on the beach ensures you are never more than 1 minute away from a beer.

Boogie boarding is a must on the beach, but watch out for the waves. They are very powerful!.

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
