We stayed at Ras Kutani over the New Year period. Overall I'd say it was ok. Our room was a cottage not a suite, the suites might be better. Our view was not exactly beachfront, actually you are quite a way back from the beach. It was roomy, with a nice front porch with a hammock. Big king sized bed and then the bathroom. Nothing really special about the room. The monkeys do tend to come in but they don't touch anything so it was quite fun to have them visit.
Beach and the pool were nice. Food was average at best. Really did not think the meals were that great. If I were doing it again, I would not stay here I'd recommend staying at one of the beach resorts on Zanzibar.
- 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
