We arrived here as the first stop on our 3 week honeymoon, straight after getting married so needed somewhere quiet and relaxing to unwind before safari. What an amazing welcome we had with the short canoe ride on the lagoon to the jetty where Rebecca and Lana greeted us with cold drinks and towels! Perfect. We were shown to our suite (number 3) which had a lovely view, ridiculously huge bed and beautiful outside plunge pool, sun loungers and sitting area. It was so peaceful and tranquil and the monkeys running around you in the trees added to the awe and wonder of the experience.
The food was simply sensational. All lunch buffets were tasty, hot and freshly made. My wife is a vegetarian and often struggles on holiday for hotels to offer her a good choice. However, Ras Kutani had plenty on offer and made special meals for her every meal time, making her feel more than included and very welcome. The last night, we were treated to private dinner on the lagoon jetty by candlelight with lanterns lighting the way down and a bottle of bubbly waiting for us! We simply were blown away. All in all, the whole experience was incredible. The staff couldn't do enough, the location is beautiful and the beach and accommodation is stunning. We only had 2 nights and would definitely, definitely go back for longer next time before safari. Thank you all!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This beach destination 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. 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 unspoilt and undeveloped beach. Accommodation is in nine spacious, charming cottages constructed of natural, local materials that harmonise perfectly with the wonderful surroundings. On top of the hill we have also four suites and a family house all with stunning views. ... more less
