Escape to peace and tranquillity at Ras Kutani. Situated only 35 miles south of Dar es Salaam, this luxury beach lodge is easily accessible, yet remains an unspoilt hideaway. The nine charming cottages are decorated with simple stylishness.
Each has a large front veranda with Swahili daybeds and hammocks and views of the ocean or lagoon. Set apart from the main lodge, perched amid tropical forest are the four spacious Upepo Suites. Each comes with its own private area, signature Sultan’s bed and sweeping views of the crescent bay and ocean. While relaxation is definitely the keynote, the more active can try body boarding, surfing and snorkelling, or explore the fresh water lagoon on a kayak. Nature walks through the indigenous coastal forest, or along the pristine shore and guided walks to a local village can be arranged. This deserted stretch of the Swahili Coast offers an idyllic sanctuary for the safari-weary traveller in search of castaway comfort.
