Quiet, secluded, fabulous rooms, great food and friendly unpretentious service; this is the best value beach accommodation and one of the most beautiful small lodges to be found anywhere. It should be on everyone’s itinerary and previous guests over the last years have consistently agreed with our judgment, wishing this style lodge was to be found on Zanzibar. You must go there, it is as simple as that!
Ras Kutani -The Details
Located on Tanzanian mainland coast which is a 15 minute charter flight from Ras Kutani.
The open-plan bar and dining area are liberally furnished with colourful cushions to create a refreshing atmosphere in which to enjoy the extremely high-quality cooking and friendly, attentive service.
Ras Kutani has just nine spacious bandas along with four Upepo suites and a family unit. The standard rooms are bamboo and thatch Polynesian style bungalows, verandas and views out over the sea, gardens or freshwater lagoon. Higher up into the hills, the 4 Upepo suites overlook the forest and out to the sea, each with massive beds and private plunge pools....where monkeys are your only neighbours.
Overall, Ras Kutani provides an escape from the outside world, a dreamy environment for visitors to relax in hammocks on their private bamboo banda veranda, in the bar or on the beach. This is, without doubt, one of Tanzania's finest beach hideaways. Cards, chess and backgammon are about as stressful as this place gets!
