Set on a beautiful beach in a quiet area south of Dar es Salaam on the Tanzanian mainland, Ras Kutani is a barefoot hideaway at which to relax after your safari adventures. For those who prefer a more active stay there are facilities for sailing, wind-surfing, snorkelling and fishing. Adjacent to a fresh water lagoon, the resort is on a four kilometre crescent of white sand and gentle surf, cooled by tropical trade winds.
Accommodation is in nine beach cottages, four hillside suites and a family house constructed from local materials, with luxury interiors. Warm and friendly staff will ensure that your every need is catered for. Delicious Pan-African cuisine and ocean-fresh seafood is served in the beautiful spacious dining area or on the beach under a starlit African sky.
There's no doubt that Ras Kutani offers an idyllic escape and it is fast becoming known as 'the' place to go for the finest Tanzanian beach experience.
