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.

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…Read full trip review
