Ras Kutani review

The road across to Ras Kutani is NOT for the faint hearted! Would have been fine in a 4x4 but in the mini bus they picked us up in it was a rather unpleasant two hour plus ride (apparently the pot holes have worsened of late). So advise a 4x4 is booked for guests

The place itself was beautifully done and the suite was well worth it - incredible views - totally chic. Could have done with a mini bar/stock of drinks as was a shame to be on the terrace so far from the restaurant etc without being able to enjoy a cool drink.

Manager was slightly "in your face" - considering it is a small place a chat once a day is quite enough but he was new and seemed to want to have a quick chat any time we passed by - felt rather suffocating. Staff were fine - nowhere near & bEYOND standard but that is to be expected - very sweet and eager to please. Excellent cocktails

Loved the boat ride to the airstrip

peaceful and relaxing

We spent the last 2 nights here and it was simply fantastic! Beautiful location, great rooms, excellent food and very nice and friendly staff.

Imal was up at 6.30 on a Sunday to take us to the airstrip and we were lucky to have him there as the booked flight did not arive at the scheduled time. He was great and he made several calls until he managed to get an aircraft to us. We made it in time to board the BA flight in Dar and we would have missed it without his help!! Great job! He was also very chatty and reassuring.

Whistle stop luxury

We were lucky to make our flight here before the sunset but it meant we had the most spectacular arrival. And we truly felt that this was a luxury resort. Being rowed across the lagoon on our arrival set the stall for our all too brief sojourn. Our hosts made us most welcome as we familiarised ourselves with our luxury banda.

The food was tasty and towards fine dining with the chef enquiring as to our enjoyment. The staff had been highly trained and this showed with quite exceptional service. Perhaps a some of the Tanzanian charm was a little too hidden with a very westernised set-up but for a luxury evening and day relaxing on the beach to end our holiday it was a great experience

Honeymoon at Ras Kutani

What a way to relax after a weeks safari!

If you fancy a bit of adventure the mini bus trip down from Dar is worth trying! It gives you a high speed close up view of life in Dar and an amazing spectacle on how many people and cars can fit on a ferry!!

Upendo gave us a very warm welcome on arrival, we couldn't believe how posh it all was!! For a few moments we thought we were out of our depth but we very soon settled in to doing nothing but eating and sleeping quite well! In between bouts of lazing in a hammock and lounging on the beach we did manage a lovely walk along the beach and around the lagoon plus a bit of kayaking thrown in.

The food here is of the highest quality and the kitchen team were all great. The menu of the finest local produce with plenty of seafood was perfect.

The manager Greg was very friendly and helpfull to the extent of arranging a very early morning breakfast of bacon butties and fruit on our last morning before we left plus driving us personally to the airstrip from the boat jetty!

Ras Kutani Review

Ras Kutani is in a simply stunning location and from the moment we arrived everything seemed to be geared to making sure that we had a relaxing and as enjoyable a time as possible. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone.

Everything about Ras Kutani is stylish and yet completely unpretentious. Everywhere you went you had stunning ocean views and the quality of the accommodation and shared areas is absolutley superb.

The food and service is exceptional. The beach is postcard perfect and almost empty. Ras Kutani is as near to a beach paradise as you can imagine and worthy of a holiday in its own right (we would certainly go back) rather than a safari add on which seemd to be the norm.

Great spot to start (or end) a Tanzania trip

Ras Kutani's beautiful location between a lagoon and the ocean the perfect place to relax before starting on safari. Nothing like walking down the beach for hours without seeing another soul and a nap in the hammock to unwind.

Very friendly and attentive staff, excellent food and vervet monkeys on the roof only made the experience better.

Ras Kutani review

Real barefoot luxury. Having been before we were a little apprehensive that it would be so good but it was actually better. This may have been due in part to the weather,which was hot and sunny,but the lodge seemed fresher.

The service was really excellent and everything came with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble. We were so lucky to see turtles hatch on the beach and head for the sea.

Friendly gem of a beach hideaway

A very special place, remote location but wonderfully friendly. Jules and Emil were a fantastic combination and made every effort to make you feel at home.

The lagoon and spa ensured that there was a wider range of things to do than the ususal beach hotel. I could not recommend Ras Katani more highly

Ras Kutani review

A beautiful place but it was too hot for me in January. I am not a beach person but as beaches go, this was excellent.
The service was excellent and the place was managed well. Nothing was too much trouble.

I had a wonderful massage on my last day.

The flight from Dar only takes 10-15 minutes and we had the little plane to ourselves.
