Ras Kutani Beach Lodge, Tanzania

The best beach lodge in east Africa!  As a company we have explored the entire coast and there  is nowhere that gets near to Ras Kutani.  It is ‘bare foot beach luxury’ at its best and comes at fantastic value.  It is secluded, private and spectacularly beautiful. Team this with fantastic rooms, lovely food and great service and we have ourselves a champion of beach lodges.

Ras Kutani - The Facts 

Ras Kutani is a 15 minute charter flight south of Dar es Salaam or a couple of hours by road, on the Tanzanian mainland coast .  It is in a beautifully secluded spot that is still a hidden gem in comparison to the more popular beaches of Zanzibar.
The sandy paths wind through the undergrowth leading to the main restaurant area, the swimming pool and guest rooms.  The main area is all completely open and blends in fantastically with the surrounding environment.  It is relaxed, laid back and the restaurant staff are always there, on hand, to attend to any requests.
The cottages are spread along the coast with views overlooking the sea and the fresh water lagoon.  They are large open, private huts that come with a thatched roof and a spacious veranda where you can relax in complete privacy.  The suites are similar but much bigger and sit further up in the forest with a spectacular panoramic view of the coast line and monkeys for companions. They also have a private plunge pools; which are perfect for any Tanzania honeymoon treat.
It is quite easy to spend a day at Ras Kutani lying on the comfortable beach, reading a book and enjoying the service of the friendly and ever attentive waiters.  Equally, you can borrow a kayak and go exploring the mangroves or watch baby turtles hatching on the beach and make their desperate dash for the Indian Ocean!
The food is also incredible, with lots of fresh fish and meat being cooked up on an open BBQ in the evening.  It caters for everyone on a Tanzanian holiday .
Ras Kutani is a beach paradise that completely destroys anywhere on Zanzibar in its price bracket, and long may that continue!

Ras Kutani - Reviews

Ras Kutani's setting on the Indian Ocean could not be more beautiful and the staff more helpful.  Our suite up the hill had an amazing view and was completely private. The staff immediately made us feel at home and like a part of their family.
