Ras Kutani

Ras Kutani Lodge sits on the coast of Tanzania, lapped by the waves of the Indian Ocean. This is the ideal escape after a safari in the African wilderness, with warm waters and long white beaches. The lodge is bordered by forest and a lagoon, which guests are rowed across to reach the lodge.

The lodge offers guests spacious accommodation in the form of 9 cottages, all of which possess an en-suite bathroom. The cottages are constructed out of natural materials and possess their own private veranda to look out upon the vast blue of the ocean. There are also 4 suites on top of the hill and a house for families.

Ras Kutani is a place of upmost tranquillity and peace, the beach is very much deserted and it is unlikely you will meet another soul. The lodge has a lounge, bar and restaurant and cuisine is prepared fresh, with seafood a big part of the menu. The dining area and lounge are the perfect place to relax, with the former providing shaded tables at which to enjoy the view and the latter comfortable sofas to sink into and enjoy a cool sae breeze. For some adventure snorkelling and kayaking are on offer, with a shipwreck able to be explored. Another nice feature of this lodge is the turtles that come to the coast to nest.

We enjoyed this hotel more than we initially thought we would. The beach was great and staff friendly. We would consider going back.

Ras Kutani was intended as a small bonus of respite and very much the least expensive aspect of our honeymoon. That all said, we were in absolute awe and amazement of how incredible it was. The service was second to none, the food to die for and the range of activities were fantastic. Given the relatively low costs involved, we would without a doubt recommend Ras Kutani to anyone visiting Tanzania and looking for some relaxation time. The only change we would have made in hindsight would have been to upgrade to fully inclusive as the drinks inclusions for this were far greater than one would normally expect. That said, the drinks prices were still very fair, and fruit juice and tea and coffee were complimentary.

The place was perfect for us as we wanted 3 days of chill out to start the honeymoon and thats exactly what we got. Cottage was great, huge bed, very natural feel to the place - perfect for relaxing. Food was really good and loads of it. Staff were exceptional all of them took time to speak to you and get to know you. Turtles were being hatched first afternoon we were there - amazing sight. We had dinner on the beach and a dinner on the pontoon over the lagoon beautiful. Only downside - couple of their cocktails not quite up to scratch and the snorkelling off the reef/beach was dire - vis was less than 2 feet! Good bodyboarding though.
