We began our honeymoon at Ras Kutani and it couldn't have been the more perfect location. From the exciting arrival via the smallest plane we have ever flown to the canoe trip down the lagoon to finally reach the lodge, Ras Kutani is truly a hidden gem! If you are looking for perfect seclusion we couldn't recommend the Hill Suites...

This is the most amazing place - fantastic staff, gourmet meals and it is right on the beach. We felt safe walking up and down the beach as far as we could go. Sometimes our dining table was carried onto the beach, another evening we had a bonfire there and cocktails were served . I would strongly recommend Ras Kutani...

We arrived at Ras Kutani after safari. Never wanting to leave the bush, it always takes me a day or two to "settle in" to the last leg of a trip to Tanzania.

This was actually my second visit to Ras Kutani, and it's the kind of place that keeps you coming back for more... I kicked off my shoes as I arrived, and didn't even look at them again until I stepped into my departure car. It's laid-back, relaxed, and easy - the sort of place that feels instantly like home.

I have never experienced anywhere quite as wonderful as Ras Kutani. It's absolutely incredible. It's beautiful, peaceful, calming & everything you could wish for when you want to chill out somewhere.

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
