Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Set on a deserted stretch of pristine white sand beach, flanked by a freshwater lagoon and coastal forest, south of Dar es Salaam.

Rooms at Ras Kutani

There are nine simple reed and thatch cottages at Ras Kutani, each with huge beds draped in white mosquito nets and large verandas with Swahili day beds and hammocks. The four large suites are set high on the hill and feature private plunge pools with sweeping views. The family unit has two bedrooms and panoramic vistas.

Food & Drink

Savour freshly prepared seafood and succulent Pan-African cuisine at meal times or sink into the comfy sofas with colourful cushions. 


Made with reclaimed dhow wood and reed flooring, the open-sided guest area has a casual beach ambiance. A short walk though the gardens takes you to a pretty swimming pool overlooking the lagoon.

Activities at Ras Kutani

Explore the surroundings on foot through the indigenous forest or on horseback along the endless beach. Try boogie boarding, take out a kayak on the lagoon or unwind with a soothing massage to the sounds of the waves.
