I had a few nights here after a week of game drives, just seeking some gentle relaxation prior to flying home. It is a lovely setting on an attractive beach where you can watch the comings and goings of both tides and people. Staff were first class, and the food was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. One morning when...

I was here 2 nights in February. I stayed one night in the 2 bedroom hilltop suite and 1 night in a "regular" room (nbr 5). The hilltop suite is massive and has a wonderful ocean view. 2 separate rooms with bath and a central outdoor living space. The steps can be daunting for anyone challenged but once up there...

On arrival at the hotel's airstrip and were very pleasantly surprised to be rowed across the lagoon to be met on the jetty by the manager Kaliman. It was Valentine's Day and we were introduced to the other guests with cocktails and dinner on the beach, under the most perfect Southern Hemisphere starlit sky, could it get any better? Our...

This was the most "hotel" like place we stayed on our trip along the coast and islands of Tanzania and was very comfortable not least because we were upgraded, very kindly, to Hill House 1. It sounds very ungrateful because the "room" - large and outside spacious was very luxurious with glorious views but goodness its a trek up lots...

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review of Ras Kutani - we are delighted you enjoyed your upgrade to Hill House but we are sorry you felt the stairs were a little much for you - but wasn't that view all worth it! 180 degree view of the beach and Indian Ocean beyond!

Ras Kutani is simply stunning. From arrival in a rowing boat watching monkeys playing to leaving we felt we had found paradise. Our room - suite one was at the top of the hill. We had stunning views, the most enormous bed and a dip pool. Service was friendly, food plentiful and our lobster dinner on our last evening was...

This was a stunning place to stay for the last part of our honeymoon. Service was amazing, food was delicious especially the lobster. Great selection of wine. We did not hear anything except the ocean for our entire stay, just beautiful relaxation. Well done Ras Kutani you made our honeymoon completely magical.

We spent a couple of nights here and it was sumptuous. On the first day we were the only two people there so we were utterly spoiled again. The tents were fantastic and beautiful with a view of the water. And the hammocks were a lovely touch. All our food was served either on the beach or looking out over...

This was my third time at Ras Katani and I can't wait to go back again! The staff are superb.. the cuisine is amazing..the accommodation perfect. We had New Year's Eve there this time which was so tastefully and perfectly organised.. it really could not have been better. The lady who does the massage treatments is as brilliant as ever.....

My wife took me here as a birthday gift and even though this was the 5th time coming here, it was just as magical as the first. The food here has a special place in my heart and this time a bonfire by the beach made the dinner even more special. We also got a surprise upgrade to a suite...

One of the best lodges in Tanzanian coast which I have visited. Nice long beaches, clean water with some spots to snorkeling (hotel is renting gear). They have some kayaks which you can use on small fresh water lagoon. Staff and management is very good, friendly and helpful. Very relaxing place to stay for couple of nights.

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
