Ras Kutani - "A hidden treasure!"

Ras Kutani is an idyllic beach getaway located on the tranquil Indian Ocean. Home to a scattered, well-appointed cluster of bandas, peace and tranquility is assured. Long stretches of pristine beach and warm blue seas offer romantic hide-aways and total relaxation before or after the excitement of a bush safari.     


Beach Resorts in Tanzania:


Despite its long and tumultuous history, this beach holiday 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.

None more so than Ras Kutani, set on a crescent of white sandy beach, washed by the gentle surf of the temperate Indian Ocean. The lodge is situated only 35 kilometers South of the port of Dar es Salaam but offers the perfect hideaway, far from the madding crowd. 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 unspoiled and undeveloped beach.

Accommodation is in nine spacious, charming cottages constructed of natural, local materials that harmonies perfectly with the wonderful surroundings. Ethnic furnishings impart a sense of the Tanzanian coast's rich cultural heritage. Each cottage has its own en suite bathroom and large veranda with views of the azure ocean. Our chefs pride themselves on preparing the fresh "fruit of the ocean" fare from the readily available local fish and crustaceans.

On top of the hill we have also four suites and a family unit all with stunning views.
