About Ras Kutani:

Remote and beautiful, Ras Kutani lies in an idyllic spot on the Indian Ocean. It is a perfect place for you to unwind. Ras Kutani is a haven of tranquility - away from the maddening crowds. You can relax in your cottage overlooking the Indian Ocean, sip cool drinks on the sandy white beaches, swim, fishing and horse riding.

Set on a crescent of white sandy beach, Ras Kutani is 35 km south of the port of Dar es Salaam. The resort has twelve spacious cottages; each is individually handcrafted using local natural materials and situated under the cooling canopy of indigenous trees with ocean and lagoon views. On the fabulous large verandas are Swahili daybeds and hammocks from which one can listen to the lapping waves of the ocean. The cottages have double beds with bedside tables and lamps and behind here is a large dressing area and bathrooms. Hot water is also available

The main guest area is a elevated thatched structure affording superb views of the beach, lagoon and the ocean. There are soft pillow seats to sink into for pre-dinner drinks or an afternoon nap and plenty of books and games adding to the very relaxed and informal atmosphere of Ras Kutani.

Meals here are exceptional and never disappointing; freshly prepared 'Fruits of the Ocean' and succulent Pan-African cuisine using the freshest local ingredients adds to the overall enjoyment of one's stay. There is a full range of activities available at the Ras Kutani. These include sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling.

Apart from the immense variety of colourful fish, dolphins, whales and turtles are frequent visitors to these shores. One can take a kayak up the freshwater lagoon and watch the Colobus, Vervet and Sykes Monkeys and the very colourful birdlife or experience the excitement of horse riding along the beach or through the bush and local plantations.

There are nature walks through the indigenous coastal forest or along the pristine shore and guided walks to local inland and fishing villages along the coast. Or you may simply prefer to lie on the beach with a book, let the days gently go by and enjoy the luxury of complete relaxation which one can experience at Ras Kutani.
