A Relaxing Finale!

Ras Kutani was an excellent way of calming down from the adrenalin filled activities of being on safari. We had thought about returning home directly after our safari adventure but pleased we chose to unwind in the friendly and relaxing atmosphere of Ras Kutani. Thank you Liz for suggesting this, otherwise we would have had to spend many hours hanging around in Nairobi Airport, as well as spend more on the airfare home!

We emerged from the plane to a smiley man called Swedy who drove us a short distance to a small boat on the lagoon. We were then rowed across to where David and his staff were ready to welcome us onto the beach - a great introduction to this mainland retreat.

During our stay David and his staff were on hand to cater for all our needs in a professional but relaxed manner. The food was excellent and one evening we enjoyed a Swahili style BBQ! Our accommodation was spacious and amazing and overlooked the ocean. We also had inquisitive monkeys in the grounds who seemed to keep a close eye on us whenever tea and biscuits were around. However, a clap of the hands kept them at bay, although they did make great photographic models! All in all the perfect place to stay if you just want to put your feet up.

An oasis of calm at Ras Kutani

If we had the opportunity to re-plan our trip we would do 2x3 night safaris and perhaps 2 nights at Ras Kutani. After all the action at Impala camp it seemed almost too quiet at the beach!

However a very relaxing stay, excellent food and service was great.

Ras Kutani review

We went to Ras Kutani to chill out after wonderful but tiring game viewing. It does exactly what it promises - a luxurious, pampering quiet, beautiful place where there is swimming, beachcombing and the soothing sounds of the ocean. No discos, floorshows or piped music. Just monkeys chattering in the palm trees and the gentle sound of ice tinkling in the cocktail glasses.

Ras Kutani review

Relaxing and beautiful spot and near to Dar Es Salaam. When we were there few guest and often had beach to ourself.

Food was excellent and again staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating to every need.

Compared to Zanzibar less activities to do but great place to just relax and recharge after safari. Less people than zanzibar so much more peaceful . Definitely visit again.

Ras Kutani review

We were only at Ras Kutani for two nights arriving at 18.00 one evening and leaving at 0600 a day later and therefore there were many aspects of the property that I am sure we did not experience. Ellie recommended Ras Kutani as an alternative to driving into Dar for the night before our morning flight left back to the UK. Instead of battling the Dar traffic you take a 10 minute flight out to Ras Kutani, where you are able to relax, sort yourselves out and prepare your flight home.

The staff did everything they possible could to make our short stay enjoyable. Mark, the manager, introduced himself to us on the evening of our arrival, and made sure that we had everything we needed for our stay. They are very used to people doing as we did, and using the property as a stop over prior to flying home and had the departure routine down to a fine art. Even though we had to leave at 0615 a full cooked breakfast was waiting for us at 0600, setting us up well for our long trip home. The food, staff and location were great.

Ellie's recommendation was perfect and suited us very well indeed.

Very good place to start or end safari. Lovely location with nice beach walks. A place to chill out rathe rthan be active.

Better than staying in Dar as the conection to International is down to a fine art and faster than being in town.

Great place to relax & unwind

You can choose to be as private as you wish with a great place to relax after an exhausting Safari.

The team looked after us really well, whilst allowing us the space to simply chill out.
