Truly a place that will ensure you relax from the first minute you until you leave! The location, views, food, service, suite, staff are all excellent. The service being attentive and available when needed, not overbearing but always warm. Highly recommended, spoil yourself! Will be back.

Ten min flight from Dar, 5 min in a Land Rover and the row boat across the Lagoon. Ras Kutani has to be on one of the most beautiful locations. Lush tress, pale golden beaches, the Indian Ocean, the accommodation is no let down either, they are well equipped and Possibly have the biggest bed I have slept. David the manager and his staff are very attentive and all want you to have a pleasant stay, the food is first class and made sure my husbands fish allergy was not an issue.
Although we had our teenage daughter with us, this is not a place that I would recommend for kids, or teenagers that like 'action' it is has a very quiet atmosphere, There is not much to do here, walking on the beach, swim in sea or a dip in the pool, Kayak on the lagoon, and treat yourself to a spa session or two, and that is about it, but it was a great way relax and chill out after being on safari.

Dear Ladyrebecca66

Thank you so much for taking time to review Ras Kutani - we really appreciate it! Ras Kutani is the perfect place to unwind and relax - soak up the African sun and the sea breezes. As you mention our location is perfectly places in a virgin coastal forest and adjacent to a fresh water lagoon and the stunning neverending beach.

Come back and relax with us soon!

Twelve minutes by plane from Dar to the hotel's private landing strip or a potentially very long but fascinating road trip will being you to what has to be one of the best hotels of its kind. Located on a quiet, golden beach, the place is informal but extremely well run. Welcoming, friendly staff, spacious and well-equipped rooms, most with sea views and first class food. There is not much to do, you can take a kayak on the lagoon, or do lots of walking or treat yourself to some spa sessions but that's about it! It's a place to relax and unwind and to feel a little bit pampered by the smiling staff who seem genuinely anxious to make your stay as perfect as possible. David is the new manager and he was attentive and pleasant and working so hard to ensure everyone was having a good time. Congratulations to everyone who has worked sop hard to give this place its deserved ranking.

Room Tip: You wont be disappointed, whichever you choose.

Dear journeymancannes

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Ras Kutani - as you say Ras is all about relaxation - after a busy safari circuit, unwind and truly ease in to beach life with staff to bring you cocktails in your hammock. Its a slice of paradise and we're so pleased you enjoyed it

We stayes in RasKutani for 3nights after spending 1 night in Dar Es Salam.
The hotel is about 1-1,30 hours from the capital and once you reach it its a real paradise.
Staff is very friendly and lodges are spacious and functionals. Also the restaurant was awesome. Location is in the middle of nothing but the lagoon and the beach are impressive.
Great and quiet place.

We have stayed at a lot of lodges in East Africa over the last five years. I think Ras Kutani has the best food we've eaten anywhere! The staff was incredibly friendly and kind and accommodating, and took very good care of our vegetarian diet. The massage room was really great - basic services that were very reasonably priced and well-delivered. It is a nice escape from the daily life of Dar, and we LOVE the policy of no little kids because we really appreciated the night away from ours. We enjoyed the kayak and snorkel equipment. Drinks being delivered to the beach was so lovely. We would recommend this hotel highly to honeymooners and other couples alike. They have thought of all of the small details to make your stay wonderful. We had an amazing night! Remember: the food is especially fantastic!

The only "negatives": although not really serious at all: if traveling on your own, it is hard to find! I know that is on purpose because they don't accept day visitors and don't want backpackers, but it is still a bit tricky even when you know the general area of its location. Also the rooms were much closer to each other than we expected. This made the rooms feel slightly less private. But otherwise - perfect!
