Ras Kutani
Ras Kutani, set on a crescent of white sandy beach, washed by the gentle surf of Indian Ocean, is situated 35 kilometers south of Dar es Salaam but offers the perfect hideaway. The hotel is flanked by a fresh water lagoon abutting onto a coastal forest. Accommodation is in 09 spacious, charming cottages constructed of natural, local materials. On top of a hill, there are 04 suites and a family unit, all with stunning views. Ethnic furnishings impart a sense of the Tanzanian coast's rich cultural heritage. Each en suite cottage has large veranda with views of the ocean. The chefs pride themselves on preparing the fresh “fruit of the ocean” fare from the readily available local fish and crustaceans. Relaxation is the keynote at Ras Kutani. The temperate seas and proximity of coral reefs ensure a wealth of colourful fish and marine life. Dolphins, whales and turtles are frequent visitors. Snorkeling, kayaking and surfing are all available. The tropical, coastal forest behind the hotel boasts some 132 different species of trees; one can watch the antics of four species of monkey, including the spectacular black-and-white colobus. One can also visit to the village nearby to taste Swahili life. Turtles still come to nest along the shore of Ras Kutani in season, with opportunities for guests to become involved in the projects that continue to look out for their welfare.The deserted beach is also ideal for long walks.
