stayed for 7 nights , after an 8 day safari, always in the past we thought we would not do a safari , then a beach holiday , we were wrong. our original plan was to fly back to Dar from Kwihala camp , pick up our luggage we had left with Safari Air , then drive to Ras Kutani , Imagine our surprise when we were collected and our luggage was on the plane , and we were dropped off at Ras Kutani's private airstrip all for free , Thank you
Met at airstrip by land rover , driven to lagoon , and rowed across , lovely touch , could have driven us to reception , but makes it special
The lodge , nice swimming pool . lovely al fresco , or covered dining , good massage room , beach activity hut with bar ,shop,relaxing areas and bar but.....absolutely amazing room.
we stayed in suite 2 , one of the 4 rooms with a private plunge pool . outside is a large circular seating area , where morning tea and coffee is left , and where the monkeys may steal your biscuits , do not be put off , this is charming . then you walk into the bedroom , which is gigantic , the largest 4 poster bed , tables chairs , wardrobes , windows are open to the wind , but covered with bug screens , fantastic views . then 2 doors , one of which leads to a very large bathroom , twin sinks ,large shower etc , the other leads to another outside seating area , with a private plunge pool and sun loungers. perfect for the afternoons and laying in the tub , watching the stars
The food was , very good indeed , clever , inventive , and very tasty. the chef is talented .
alcoholic drinks were reasonable , and a good cocktail selection - well it is a holiday.
did we have any complaints , not in the slightest . we were very well looked after
we each had a couple of massages , which were very reasonably priced , and well done .
we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves , and would recommend Ras Kutani to anyone who wanted a peaceful , relaxing ,stress free time
- 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
